We had a blast today going to the Orange County Fair! Hubby and I loved going to the fair since our dating years, and still went before and after the kids were born! This year, well, this morning, hubby went hiking at Mt.Baldy ~ leaving before sunrise (and had just returned) so I took the kids to a 6-hour excursion to Orange County Fair ~ where "The Beat Goes On"!
The kids loved seeing "Al's Brain in 3-D" for the 2nd time in a row, and we saw lots of really cute farm animals too! (Which confirms our decision to have a chick & a duckling next summer....stay tuned!)
Kids Pet Goat ~ Caleb offered to pet the goat, which is significant since he's allergic to dogs.
But he felt ok! Now we know that he's allergic to dogs but not goats....so maybe we should get a goat!
I've always enjoyed the Alaskan Pig Races, but due to the economy, they're no longer handing out "free 1 lb. bacon" coupons from Ralphs like they used to. But that's ok 'cuz who'd want to eat 1 lb. of bacon anyways? Besides, at the food stands this year ~ they offer "Chocolate Covered Bacon" for $5.00 a piece.
Caleb helped me stroller Abbie around the fairgrounds all day, which I am very grateful for. And he was awarded cotton candy 'while Abbie got a pony ride!
The funny thing was, the show they enjoyed and fixated on (for 45 minutes) was the "waterless cookware cooking show"! I guess they were just waiting for the free chicken/veggie samples that came after the show!
