Fair or Bust
We hit up the Canby fair yesterday with our pals Donna and Jenna. It was very hot, which made us a bit lethargic, but we enjoyed the usual animal bonding and sightseeing. The girls loved anything newborn, like these darling ducklings and piglets.
My favorites are the llamas! I forget this fellow's name but Diego was there too, (it was so good to see him!) sulking in the corner behind a white Llama named Micky. His pronounced underbite might as well have been uttering, "Sheesh, can't a guy get a little privacy?"
I also like the doves, maybe because of the way they're always cooing in our yard.
Omsi was on site with a cool touch table for the kids to explore.
One of our favorite things to do is hit the children's area. They fill a big area with dried feed corn kernels that the kids can dig and play in. We couldn't find it this year! We were so sad! There is usually an opportunity to make a "Dirt Baby" too but alas, not this year.
Donna is my oldest and dearest friend and this tradition of taking our kids to the fair is one I look forward to every summer.
