THE FAIR

The 100 year aniversary of the Sanislaus County Fair was on this week. My daughter, her daughter, Roy and  I decided to go last night.

We started out with petting the rabbits. These were the smaller rabbits. Cassie liked petting their soft fur. All the kids seem to be having fun with the rabbits.

Carries friend was the leader for the 4-H rabbits this year. She was showing us the different rabbits that got ribbons.

Her friend allowed Cassie to pet one of their rabbits that was in the cage.

After the rabbits Cassie was ready to pet the smaller goats, and other young animals. This was done in an area for petting animals.

Cassie wanted her picture taken in the corn. She was having a great time.
Then it was off to the rain forest area to see the unusual animals. I drew the line at coming near the scorpions. They were allowing the kids to touch them. Coming from Arizona I have a healthy respect for scorpions and snakes. Yes, it is a good idea to inform kids about the animals but they should not make children think it is just ok to pet them in the wild.

There was a husband and wife clown team that did a performance for the kids. When they got the mini blower with a roll of toilet paper on the end. We were all laughing. Toilet paper was going everywhere. Sorry for picture but the lights were yellow.

Papa took Cassie down to get her clown nose

HOW DO I LOOK NANA?--  As cute as a funny clown!

Now to some fun things for Papa. How about the mini trains. They had a great display of them. Cassie enjoyed watching them go under the tunnels and over bridges.
We looked at a lot of the exhibits-photography, metal work, food, quilts, sewing, etc.
Now it is time to go home and get a drink on the way home that is way cheaper than at the fair. 
Carrie did splurge and get Cassie some cotton candy. A kid cannot go to the fair without some cotton candy.

We were all having a great time at this years fair.
