NM State Fair

We did it!  We finally made it to the fair as a family, woohoo!  Last year, we waited until the evening of the last day to take Grace and everything was pretty much shut down.  The animals at the McDonald's Farm were nowhere to be found, the food vendors were closing up and most of the art exhibits had been taken down.  The year before, we made the mistake of braving the State Fair Park & Ride and nearly got run over by several cars (G was prego at the time) as we attempt to enter the fair... It was no bueno.  This year, however, we made it in one piece and had so much fun. :)

Gracie’s Gaga joined us and G took the day off so we had all afternoon to eat and play and we ended up staying for nearly 6 hours.  Grace was totally wiped out by the time we left.

The Ronald McDonald Farm was buzzing with kiddos and tons of animals.  Grace loves animals and has no fear so she made every attempt to reach into the cages (we made sure she didn’t) and squealed with joy as we went from pen to pen.

The bean even sat perfectly still to have a little pink heart painted on her cheek.

We rode rides and by we I mean the bean and me.  G is such a chicken when it comes to rides that spin that I had to pressure her into riding the Ferris Wheel, lol!  Grace and I rode some kiddy rides and I rode the big kid rides by myself and loved every terrifying minute of it! ;)

The best part of the day was taking Grace on her first pony ride.  She was the littlest kiddo riding and was so brave.  She smiled and waved during the ride and petted her pony, which was just about the cutest thing I’d ever seen!

Our day at the fair ended with pie á la mode and a gigantic corn dog.  It was a great end to a great day.


  1. your kid should be on tv! she is soooo cute :) I love the fair and can't wait to take full advantage of being prego this year while I scarf down a corn dog and a funnel cake...and lemonade..and ice cream...

  2. Thank you! Fair food is the best! What I failed to mention in this post is that while we ended the day with pie and a corn dog, we started with burgers, curly fries and a huge turkey leg and lemonade. You're going to be in heaven! YUM :)

  3. Awesome. I think the best part is the pony ride too. From now on that's the first thing she's going to want to do :)
    Funnel cake...yuuuuuum.
    I love that face painting picture after her face was painted. She's a doll !

  4. She's just stunning - I already love things like the fair, I can't imagine how much fun it'd be with a little one!! Lxxx

    1. Awe, thank you so much! Everything is more fun with a little one. You gals are going to love it.

  5. Punky is a total Dora freak! She really likes Backpack and Boots the best LOL. I love these pictures, with everyone at work going on, I've been slacking in keeping up, looks like everything is going great!

    1. Thanks Rachael! G LOVES Boots as well. She yells "Boot's, Boot's" with a lisp, it's hilarious.


Thanks so much for keeping up with our little family! We love reading your comments and will get back to you as soon as we can.
