Utah State Fair

Way back in the middle of September we went to the Utah State Fair. It was so much fun. I think I am going to plan a trip there every year from now on. We had done some research about that activities they had and we arrived just in time for Ausie Kingdom. Cyndi loved it. Damian slept through it. There is a farm in Denver, CO that has all sorts of Australian animals living there.

This is a sugar glider. It was so small and so cute!

After the show we were able to go and touch some of the animals. Cyndi loved it!

Then we went off to see the Sea Lions. About 5 minutes into the show it started to rain. It rained for a 30 minutes and then it was a nice day again.

After it stopped raining we walked around for a little, had some dinner and then headed off to save our seats for the rodeo. Everyone's first rodeo, except for Ben.

Damian enjoyed sleeping through everything. He woke up for food twice, but that was it.

At the start of the rodeo, 3 skydivers came down. They each had a flag attached to their backs. It was so cool.

After Damian had eaten a second time, he watched some of the rodeo.

Cyndi, Ouma and Marius watching the rodeo. Notice Cyndi could not stop watching the horses for a picture.

Steer wrestling - enlarge the picture and you can see the cowboy half on his horse and holding the steer - its cool

They had all sorts of competitions. Its was crazy to see all of it. Here Cyndi is standing next to a very large pumpkin. Behind here were a few tables with best everything on it. All sorts of food products.

We found the bunny section. I was amazed at all the different kinds of bunnies there are. When we walked past this cage, Marius said: this morning there was only one bunny in the cage.

Love these bunnies. They are just so fluffy!

And this one is just so adorable. I love that face (below).

On our way out we went past the pony rides. Cyndi did not was to ride at first, but then got excited and we had to give her a ride. She now loves pony rides!
