State Fair of Oklahoma 2018

Looks like we're really promoting the home state lately with my most recent Governor's Mansion/Oklahoma History Center post and now this...
The State Fair of Oklahoma 2018.

My dad is selling storage buildings out there and I had to go set up a computer/printer combo for him. That was on the $2 admission day.
Today I had to go back to finish up and the family went with me.

He had tickets for Jennifer and myself and we only had to buy Sofia's. The other kids are still free.

So here's a brief "photosynthesis" of our little field trip/outing:

The front of the FOOD, of course!

The Ferris Wheel

A fun ride that has been discontinued. There was a round capsule that would rise to the top of the tower and rotate. I've never ridden in it, but I hear it was magnificent. It still serves as a landmark for orienting one's self at the fair.

We spent the majority of our time in the AGtropolis birthing center.
These goats were acting like royalty...barely moving and behaving regally. The girls said they would make good grass cutters at our house.

These chicks were lively. I didn't get a picture of the hatchery. The girls wanted to stay until a complete hatching was accomplished (it can take days).

This was the tiniest baby goat who was just learning to eat.

Snickers was being milked as part of a presentation by Oklahoma Dairy Farmers. Very interesting. Jersey cows produce more cream in their milk than other varieties. Snickers even completed Movement #2 as a grand finale. The presentation was very informative.

This one is especially for Marg, as I think of her everytime I see anything related to the fiber arts. The alpacas were hilarious with their funky teenager hair-do's.

Of course, we stopped by the gyro trailer and the pretzels and the lemonade and...well, almost $100 dollars later, we were out of there!

We only explored a small corner of the fair and there really are so many wonderful things to see and experience.

I haven't been to a fair grounds ever. I did love "Riverview", an amusement park in Chicago with awesome rides and a haunted house. And Mom would give us each 25 cents for the day -- the rides were pennies each. But I did start horseback riding in highschool -- that took us (my sis and I) out to rural country. We'd spend the day at "the barn".

The last time I was at a State fair I was 14 in 1950 in New Jersey--one of the worst days/evenings of my life--long story.
I'm glad it was a good day for all of you!

I always love the animal exhibits. One year we went and a fair goer had brought two wild cats in his convertible. They almost stole the show.
