More of the Stampede

On Thursday me and Neil headed to the Stampede and on the off chance my sister was going, I phoned her to see what she was doing, well lo and behold she was on the c-train on the way to the Stampede as well!  How cool, so we met her there and hung around all day.

Her kids and Rob wanted to go on a bunch of rides and they had ride passes so they went on a few.  Its kinda a tough age, at 9 and 11 cause they are too big for the kids rides, but kinda a little afraid of some of the grown up rides.

After a few rides, we went through the agricultural area and the boys were pretty interested in the mini grain elevator, I'm sure they woulda stayed there all day if we let them.  And of course milking Bluebell was fun!

We saw all kinds of stuff, and some pretty cool items in the round up center I could have gone home with, but all I got was food, lots of it, fudge, mini donuts, a chip stick, and fresh lemonade.  Rob had a donut burger and said it was good, but I didn't try it.  It was nice weather, but in case it got really hot all over were these cooling stations.

We entered to win the dream home and there was also tickets on cars and boats and trucks and all kinds of stuff, I kinda wanted the boat, just cause the cool decoration on it.

All in all it was a fun day, and since we left by 7, we stopped at Best Buy and Future Shop and looked at tablets and laptops.  We are not sure about the tablets yet cause I don't understand how to transfer storage cause there is no USB drive or any type of ports, and so we are thinking of getting a toshiba laptop, but we are gonna wait till the one we want is on sale, probly this fall for back to school deals.  But on the way out we did see this guy in front of us at a red light and I had to get his pic :)

Good luck on the ticket draws! I didn't see those mister thingys.
The food sure was expensive! Ted wanted mini donuts but the line up was huge. The best deal was the root beer.
