Norwegian Sun 9/30-10/5 - Our Fall Break Cruise

Recommended Posts

Before we got home I had one last item on my to do checklist.

That's Right - The GNF!

 

As a kid I had always heard of this event but it was too far away from home to attend.  As an adult I never made the time to do.  Well, I checked the calendar and it was going on the same week of the cruise, so I had no excuse to not make it there this year.  Plus I got the spend m first time there with Teeny on her first time.  (It was Mama's first time too - lol).

First I embraced my inner farmer.

Next we watched a cow competition.  Had no idea what was going on.

Afterwards we entered the fair portion of the event and trotted over to the traveling 911 museum.

Very touching experience.  Even though it happened and I lived through it, being half a Country away you don't get the magnitude of it all until you see it for yourself.  I have friends from NY and my TV experience falls way short to their first hand experiences.

No event is complete without a little Pig Racing!

And let us now forget the Sheep Rodeo!  This was the cutest event watching these little kids hand on for dear life. You could not tell them they were not ridding wild broncos.

We walked around and looked at some more of the antique farm equipment then made our way home.

It was a different yet fun experience.  Can't say I have to do it again but glad I checked it off my bucket list.

Well folks that is it.  All in all we had a blast just like we always do.  Thanks for following along with our adventure.  Check the signature line for our next on the water experience.  I'll be doing a report on that one to so add a calendar reminder to check for it a few weeks after we get back.  Until then TTFN!
