Maricopa County Fair...A.K.A The Arizona State fair.

On my first full day in Arizona I was told I was to go to a fair. Interesting...I thought. Later to find out we were there for good Samaritan deed of my step dads. We were to see a christian rock band play. It was an acquaintance of his band and he felt he needed to support him...for some reason. But of course we made a day out of it and had tons of fun! Of course we ate fair food, looked at crafts, a motocross show, animals and also watched a turkey stampede. It was an interesting day if I may say so. 
Just cause I know your all wondering. Is an Arizona fair the same as a Washington state fair?....Pretty much... There seemed to be alot more goats...A different thing that I noticed was a live cattle auction. I have never experienced one at a fair before so it was interesting to watch. The local 4-H clubs sell their cattle in an auction by the pound. It took us forever to figure out why a pig was going for 10 dollars! But then we figured it out the pig was going for 10 dollars a pound! Wow good for the kids! 

Here are a few shots from that interesting day at the fair! 

 My lovely mother cracks me up! Isn't she gorgeous?!
 This was our desert after a yummy ear of corn!! Best shaved pineapple! Plus any pineapple is good pineapple!

And this was the Turkey Stampede! Best time of the night!
 They put food in the back of a toy truck and drive it around as the turkeys chase it! Best part was only 1 turkey would chase it the other would...wellllll...flirt with the audience. And YES I said flirt.
 The gentle man in the black is my stepfather. He was convinced the turkey man was his long lost brother! =)
 These silly goats did this all the time! Then we went home and my moms dog did it! Is this an animals form of yoga? sure looks like a good stretch to me.

 Cutest bunnies there!! I don't usually like bunnies but these ones I wanted to take home with me.

 So cool! this guy was awesome!! Metal Mulisha guy!

Carnivals are so pretty at night! I am gunna play around with some photo editing tools and see what fun I can have with these ferris wheel pictures and their cool mixtures of light! If anyone has any suggestions please comment below this post it would be greatly appreciated.

It was a hoot of a time.
And I won't tell you about the concert we watched....
Stay tuned for more fun blog posts!
