2008 Indianapolis State Fair

Yesterday we visited the State Fair for the second year in a row. We had a nice time hanging out with the girls. One of the first things we came upon when we arrvied was this animal circus act (first photo above) where a poor cat was clinging on for dear life to a dog while it hurdled over gates and ran in circles...how horrible for the cat! The lady in the photo came out dancing to Vogue and we began to wonder if the act was age appropriate. There were monkeys later in the show and we thought we would never get Nadia away from there! Next, we walked a winding path through the Little Hands on the Farm interactive agriculture display where Nadia picked up supplies to the grocery store to buy herself food. Along the way she collected corn to feed the pig that she kissed, an egg from a chicken, a red onion, and then she received a dollar to buy something from the market afterwards. We're not sure why, but this was just as fun for Jose and I and probably our favorite thing we did at the fair. Then we had this great idea...rides! Well, not such a great idea after all. You can't tell from the photo above but Nadia cried the entire time she was so scared. Throughout our visit we also saw a lot of animals, Nadia's favorite without a doubt! We ended the visit with some good old fair food, the funnel cake, and an ice cream cone for Nadia (she made such a mess that you would have thought she wrestled a pigs). There are a few more photos in the web album.
