Oklahoma State Fair - Day 1 - Sunday

It is that time of year again. The Oklahoma State Fair. As much as I have a love/hate relationship with living in Oklahoma... The state fair is one of the opportunities that I can binge out on our culture here and actually love every minute of it. 

I brought my camera this year and that turned out to be a ton of fun so I decided to come back Tuesday as well. However those haven't been edited yet. So here are my pics from Sunday. 

So I just want to show you guys a few of the sites you may see at the Okie State Fair if you have never been. :)

First thing's first. You must find beer.

After finding said beer. You must become ready to be a true Okie. By posing like this. 
Then if you have 25 dollars to waste on a old timey photo, do so. If you are like us, then keep the money to spend on fried food and beer.

If you have even more money to waste, buy pointless ugly figurines. 
Note the sign though. It said there would be a $5 charge for photos. 
I took a photo and walked away just to spite them.

We were there on Sunday, too!! I saw that one blue-eye horse, and I am confused as to where the giant slide was. I wanted to take pictures of it, but they moved it on me. I love that picture of you that your friend took, and your hair is pretty ;)

Thanks guys!

Hmm the giant slide was near one of the entrances to get to the ride area. But you are right it wasnt in it's usual place. I was sad that i couldnt find the snake woman sign or the one for the smallest woman. I wanted to take pics of those signs cause they are just all around great americana.

and yes Wesley is an amazing photographer! We went to take pics together on tuesday but i ended up taking so many that ive been editing them ever since!!! He is fantastic. If you like those photos you should check out his photoblog in that link (click on his name)
