Last week we had the chance to go to the California State Fair!
It was a quick little trip in the evening after Brandon got home from work, but it was fun to get out and see the exhibits and animals.
Correction...we actually got there a little late and didn't get to see many animals, but something was better than nothing :).
After we sampled the deep fried Oreos and had some dinner, we made our way to the rides. We told Aubrey and Lucy they could pick out a treat and to no surprise, they chose cotton candy :).
These girls love this stuff!
You wouldn't know it by looking at this face, however!
For the life of me I can't seem to get these two to look at the camera these days!
It was an interesting sunset that evening as the sun went behind billows of smoke from a fire not too far away.
Later on in the evening, we let Aubrey choose one ride to go on and she chose the farris wheel. She wasn't quite tall enough for the bigger farris wheel, so the smaller one it was. It ended up being a good thing because this little dare devil of ours got pretty scared as the ride started up. Brandon gave me a "thumbs down" as I look on. By the second time around she was happy, laughing and content as I got the "thumbs up" from Brandon.
We really wish we could have gone to the fair one morning when more things were open, but it was fun to at least go for one evening and experience a fair for the first time together. I think we just may be coming back in the years to come!
