Fair 2012

This year was no exception to the Fair, we went of course, we were only able to go the first 2 days then we headed to Winnamucca, NV for Shaun to rope. Wednesday we did the parade, the first part anyway, this was Sydney's first year being able to dance in the parade for Dance Factory. She loved it and wants to do it again next year. Then we headed straight out to the fair to ride the rides for family night. Grandma Sue buys the kids each 10 tickets every year and we do it on family night because all the rides are only 1 ticket each.

 I took the kids on the Farris Wheel, I don't remember it being so scary! Maybe because I was worried that Preston would lean over too far and fall out.

Sydney with her friend Kinley Richards from Dance and School.  They were able to ride a few "big" ride together while I took Preston and Shelby on the smaller rides.

Shaun bought Antonio this summer for chariot racing this winter, so he decided to run him on the flat track to see how well he ran.  Well, out of 3 times racing he placed all 3 times.  The first race he placed 2nd in Malad and the other 2 times he raced in Idaho Falls and place 3rd one week and 2nd the other, just barely getting beat.  So he has at least paid for his feed and entry fees.  Chariot races start the end of this month, hopefully he and Jake will win!!

 The kids at the paddock waiting for Antonio to come out and get saddled for the the race.  The girls wore red because Antonio was in the red gate.

  We were getting ready to go over to the Logan rodeo and had a little extra time to kill so we went out and started taking pictures.  As you can see below, my kids aren't shy in front of the camera, I think they would have their pictures taken everyday if they could.

 Sydney 8 1/2 yrs
 Shelby 5 1/2 yrs
 Preston 3 1/2 yrs
 The kids w/o the horse, he didn't want to get his picture that day :)
