Arizona State Fair

Last night we decided to load up the boys and head to the Arizona state fair for the night. We had a lot of fun even though it was opening night and really crowded! Dallen's favorite part of the fair is the food so we got him and the boys some food. You can't tell in this picture but these corn dogs were HUGE! Both boys ate the entire thing too but it was so funny because they were really big. We decided to visit the petting zoo since that is the boys favorite thing.
Jaxon isn't really in to getting his picture taken so he stands there for me but he won't ever look at the camera!
This is Dallen and Jaxon feeding the goats.

A lot of the kids were scared and wouldn't feed the animals but Austin loved it!

This was the craziest petting zoo I have ever seen. It had so many exotic animals for the kids to feed and pet. This is a kangaroo and turtle. They also had a giraffe, zebra, deer, emu, yak, ostrich, and buffalo! It was so hard to get pictures of the kids feeding them though because it was so crowded!
Cheese! I don't know why he closed his eyes!

They had a huge building that was just for kids. It had blocks and a jungle gym and face painting, and jungle bikes and a lot of other stuff. The best part was that it was all free! They boys had a blast!
Jaxon would build a tower and then he wanted to tackle it!
They had a lot of these animals for the kids to ride but Jaxon wanted to ride the tiger.
And of course Austin had to copy his big brother!
We had a lot of fun and were happy that we went. I wish we could have done more but it was just too crowded! They even had an real, live, elephant ride which I thought was so cool but Jaxon wouldn't even consider it so we had to pass.
