I just love this time of the year, the heat is nearing an end, the County Fairs start, kids go back to school, all of it signals the coming of fall, which is my all time FAVORITE season of the year. The crisp air, the gorgeous colors of the leaves, snuggling next to a warm fireplace, I just can't think of anything better!! This last weekend was the Tooele County Fair, it is such a fun place to go. It is very small in comparison to many of the other County Fairs, very simple and lots of fun. They had a mechanical bull set up there and both Dallin & McKinley rode it. They did very well for their first time. There were other people standing around watching and they all hollered and cheered for them. I think they even managed to stay on for the "8 second" ride. :)
After the kids rode the bull, we went and looked at some of the animals they had there. Some friends of ours in the ward had pigs there that they were showing and the kids got to sit on them.
After looking at the pigs and the sheep they had there we headed to go look for the cows and chickens of course :), and ended up finding they had a rodeo going on. McKinley & Dallin have been to a rodeo one time before, but they were 3 1/2 and 6 months old, so they didn't remember it. We all had a blast. McKinley informed us that when she grows up she is riding bucking horses and Dallin told us that he is going to ride the bulls. Aiden just loved it all!!! Of course we all know that rodeos go pretty late, and we kept expecting Aiden to crash and burn and fall asleep, but he fought with all his will to stay awake. Every time we asked if he was ready to go night-night, he would look right as us and say "NO". We had a great time and can't wait till next year.
