Fair Funday!

Ever since Mommy was a little girl, she always loved going to the Pima County Fair!  Mommy and Uncle Kenny loved that it was always in April and around their birthdays.  We decided that today would be a good day to check out the fair.  The weather wasn't too windy and the temperature wasn't too hot.  We tried to get their early so we wouldn't be so hot.  Grandpa joined us on our trip to the fair.  We had tons of fun!

Our first stop was to see the sharks! Sounds crazy to see sharks in the desert!  The shark tank was as big as a semi-truck.

On our way to check out the rest of the animals, Caitlin decided she was ready to ride!  First ride was the dragon roller coaster!
Caitlin quickly got in her seat all by herself, but then realized Daddy wasn't with her so..........

Daddy rode the ride too!

Hands up everyone!

The flying pink elephants were next!

Next ride, the Spininng Dragons
Caitlin, Mommy, and Baby Hurley enjoyed this ride

Couldn't resist sliding down the BIG SLIDE!
Daddy and Caitlin had fun sliding down

We couldn't miss the carousel!

After riding, we ate some lunch and then headed to see the animals!

Next stop, The Petting Zoo!

Next stop, Pony Ride
Caitlin chose to ride on Tex

Caitlin loved the pony ride and Mommy walked next to her to make sure she didn't fall off.  On another note, if you look closely you can see Mommy's baby bump starting to show.

Waving like a princess on her horse

After the pony ride, we went to see the 4-H animals

After visiting all the animals we enjoyed a tasty ice cream cone and headed to our car.  Caitlin spotted the elephants on our way out and wanted to ride on one.
Caitlin and Daddy climbed onto the elephant

Ready to ride!

What a great afternoon at the fair!  It was getting a little hot and we decided to head home!
Caitlin held on tight to her popcorn and was asleep before we left the parking lot!
