Huntsville Fair 2013

Well yesterday was our big day at the fair that I had been looking forward to!  (Actually, evening at the fair.  Our fair is so tiny it only takes about an hour or two to see everything lol.)

Of course, we got a funnel cake.  It was SO good!  But I totally forget to take a picture of it.  Oh well, just trust me.  :)
I have become a bit of a bore in my "old age" as I cannot stomach even the tamest of fair rides anymore.  But I can take pictures!
This is my sister and her hubby!  They were so kind as to let me snap a picture.  I was a little sad because Ben had to work last night and couldn't come with me, but I had plenty of company with my sister and Mom!

My favorite part is the animals.  They are so much fun to watch!
Beautiful goat.  Me wants!
He's kinda cute... just sayin'....
You all know a big part of the fair I was excited for was the chickens.  I was hoping to purchase a few to add to our flock.  Well, unfortunately, there were hardly ANY chickens for sale this year!  I was sad.  But I desperately need a new rooster and just happened to find this lovely Phoenix fellow for sale.  Thank goodness!  Can you imagine what lovely babies I will have mixing this guy with the Spitzhaubens?  I can't wait to see the results!
Also, my sister decided she couldn't live without this terribly cute bunny rabbit.  She is planning to pick him up tonight and take him home.  I am excited to get some more shots of him, as this one doesn't do his cuteness justice at all!  (Also, I have no idea if it is actually a him or a her.)
Well, that sums up our fun time at the fair!  I will be bringing my beautiful Phoenix rooster home this evening so hopefully I can snap some pictures of him tomorrow to share.  Let's hope for an easy transition for he and our current chickens!
Good night fair!

  3. I don't see how anyone rides any rides at the fair, and I love riding them normally. After all that junk food, most of us are ready to vomit without getting on a single ride. :)

    As always, your photos are wonderful.

    Can't wait to see how that rooster does in his new home. I'm expecting lots of photos! :)

    1. I know, I need to get my camera and get out there!! He is such a beauty. But they are all free-ranging at the moment so I may have to wait until this evening!

  4. I love fairs! I've never been able to decide if it's the people, the lights, the rides or the palpable excitement. My great uncle owned a traveling carnival and it was always great fun when they came to town, as I got unlimited ride tickets. Woohoo!

    I've never seen a fair that had animal, though. That rooster is gorgeous, so I hope you'll be gracing us with pics later on. And that bunny? Too cute for words. Have a great Sunday, Lana!
