So Long, Fair

The kiddo and I spent two glorious afternoons at the County Fair last week. We were joined by a bevy of kindergarten classmates and neighborhood pals, and a splendid time was had by all. The kiddo managed to win a veritable treasure trove of crappy carnival prizes, which are now his most prized possessions (and a huge eyesore in our home). Exactly one candy apple and half of a cherry sno-cone were consumed (the other half, of course, spilled on me when we rode the big kid coaster together. And no, I'm not sure why I imagined that it somehow would not spill on me.), and we managed to adopt exactly ZERO kittens and chihuahuas at the Humane Society adoption booth. Not an easy task, to put it lightly.

The weather was amazing both days, and I got the chance to catch up with old (grown-up!) friends, and get to know some new ones better. It was great to watch the gaggle of 5 and 6 year olds run around together and explore the kiddie rides, the midway games, and the exhibits--I only wish I had remembered to bring my LC-A for more fairtastic shots.

The California State Fair is coming up next month... Anybody game for a road trip?
