the big fresno fair


Tuesday, October 29, 2013

I totally used to knock my hometown, thinking it was kinda unrefined and dull, but I'll say we've been busier the past month than we ever have been and Clovis has kinda bumped up a lot of knotches in my book of coolness. We've really been loving being back! I will say that there is no other fair like the Fresno Fair. Jared and I had been looking forward to it for weeks, well, years kinda if you count the ride "the Zipper." It is such a classic ride, yet over the past 5 years we haven't been able to find it at any of the carnivals we've gone to, so we were soooo happy to see it in operation again!

This fair year was particularly exciting because our niece (only 4!) was competing in the Mutton Busting World Championships! I seriously had no idea that a sheep could be so scary and charge that fast! I was impressed that kids had enough guts to hang on for dear life. I kinda wanna put Evelyn in it when she's old enough.
Yeah, it was a good time. Was I saddened when we left without eating a single fair food, especially fried oreos? Yes. But boy did we have a rockin' time! Thanks Grandma & Grandpa for treating us!

  3. Dude! I didn't have any fried food either and in the car on the way home I kept telling Ryan "What the heck is wrong with me?!". Also, isn't it amazing how our perspective of our little town has changed since getting married and having babies?? I love living here! It was great to see you! We need to get together and let the kids play!
