The Ostrich Festival

Two weeks ago we went to the Ostrich Festival in Chandler to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday. We had wanted to get out and do something together. None of us had ever been to it before and it looked interesting... so we headed out!

It was basically a glorified carnival that charged you to get in. But we made the best of it and had fun with the kiddos.

Here we are with our front row seats to the most awesome show on earth... "The Bubble Show!" Okay, we all probably lost brain cells and got minor sunburns... but atleast there was only 1 horrible show that day.

Darci saw a bubble.

We walked past a mechanical bull and then saw a kiddie one right beside it. Mason asked if Boonie could ride and they let him for free! At first Boonie wasn't sure what to do or how to hold on, but once it started going (very slowly of course) he started laughing and got a kick out of it.

He has his game face on here:

The highlight of the day were the ostrich races. Man those birds look weird... and they look even weirder with full grown men riding either on top of them or being pulled in chariots.

The birthday boy!!!

And being we are at an ostrich festival... of course you have to get your picture taken in front of an ostrich!!! Who wouldn't!?

It was a fun day. Not quite what we expected, but a fun day still!
