We did it! We survived another scorching day at the fair… To be honest, it was actually a wonderful day! I was not too excited to go because of the heat and missing a day of school on our first full week, but I’m so glad we did. Despite the heat, it was one of the least crowded days I’ve ever experienced, which made it so much more enjoyable. Not to mention, we met up with our dear friends that make everything more fun!!
This may sound a little crazy, but I fell in love with this little brown calf. She was so sweet and now I want a cow. Ha!
The annual chocolate milk picture… I should really do a post with all the pictures over the years!
Finding the queen bee and eating our honey sticks!
They had a new section this year: panning for gold and homesteading. Once again, the lack of crowds made it so fun! There was only one other family in this section.
Seeing the gardens always inspires me. Artichoke flowers are so beautiful. Perhaps we should grow artichokes!
Baby animals…. awww….
Sierra and Malachi each did 6 book reports, so we had a total of 12 free rides. Generously, they shared with Allison, Natalie, and Xavi! (Otherwise, rides are close to $9 each; INSANE!) Other than Xavi’s little train ride, our friends introduced us to the “Big ride” section this year. When did my kids get so big??
Allison and Natalie went in to feed the Lorikeets. I sent them with the camera, and I think they did pretty good! We finished our day stopping at the McDonalds for slushes and ran into some friends we met at camp. Small world!
Lesson to myself: You will always be tired. You will always be busy. You will always have school work and house work, BUT… it’s always worth it!
