Just a "Few" More Fair Photos

I had a TON of photos from the 2011 Iowa State Fair. Here are just a "few" more!
These piglets are just a few days old. The  one on the left kept pushing the one on the right into the side of the farrowing stall.

She HAD to pose with the HUGE pumpkin!

Liv and Daddy went down the HUGE slide! She wanted to go again, so her second ride was with me. (Daddy said it was a little too high for his comfort.)

She was compelled to touch its nose. "I like nostrils!"

I thought these dappled draft horses were beauties. I'm standing where I am so I don't startle them with the flash (note the blinders).

Of course, here are Nonno and Livie together with the huge pumpkin.

The ferris wheel - I used Picknik and its "Boost" and "Lomo-ish" effects.

A flamingo and tree all lit up, next to an Asian food stand.

It's a yearly tradition to get a photo of Andrew next to this big marble, floating globe/fountain. The globe is upside down in this photo because it floats on the water and rotates around freely.

He had to try the "hot beef sundae" - mashed potatoes, roast beef, gravy and cherry tomato on top. Is he looking away because he thinks he won't be in the photo? I dunno.

Liv's favorite pony, Gabby.

She got to milk a Jersey cow (from Iowa, not the Jersey Shore!)!

Nonno, Livie, and Gabby (who is ready to show!).

Maybe next year I'll have a chance to take Livie on this sky ride.

Thanks for all the fair photos this year. Maybe I can take a few myself one day. I would SO go on that slide : )

Looks like a wonderful time. A beef sundae? It sounds interesting.

Love the fair photos, Sonya. I didn't go to any fairs this year -- hoping to remedy that next year.
