Strolling through Centennial Plaza, our first stop was an indoor exhibit called City of AGtropolis where we saw...
a large mesh tent filled with butterflies. Geep bought our tickets and in we went.
There were hundreds of Blue Morpho butterflies inside! They would often land on you, especially if you were wearing bright colors.
I wondered if this was the first butterfly Myles had ever seen. It is certainly the largest.
We each took a turn feeding a butterfly...

I opt for the right-side up approach. (photo taken by John)
The Butterfly House turned out to be the highlight of the day for me, but we also saw...
butterflies emerging from chrysalises, and...so much more...that I stopped taking pictures after a while.
However, I do wish I would have remembered to photograph our fair food...
We ate two Indian tacos on fry bread, one turkey leg, several fried ribs, some curly fries, a boat of fried okra, and one ear of roasted corn...to start with.
Later there was funnel cake, liquid nitrogen churned ice cream, and a jug of homemade root beer...and then we were full.
When the midway opened we went to find the Merry Go-Round for Myles to ride. We took the long way, so I'm sure we must have burned off all of those calories.
It turned out that Myles wasn't tall enough to ride the Merry Go-Round, not even to ride sitting on Mama's lap on the bench. We were slightly disappointed, but we didn't let it spoil our fun.
Miles of Smiles, the theme of the Oklahoma State Fair, described our day perfectly!
