this past weekend was the most perfect weekend to go to the california state fair! it was perfect because it was NOT HOT. sacramento can be scorching, a good 20* hotter than fairfield at times, so the fair can be kind of miserable. the animals don't like it, you're sticky and sweaty, the food smells gross. ewwww. at a cool 80*, the fair was a pleasure this year. it was also opening weekend, so everything was fresh (worker attitudes, the animal stalls, rides, bathrooms, etc.)

we saw quite a few animals (our main attraction) this year ranging from reptiles to Australian specialties:
|jack liked seeing the slithering snakes|
|these bees were very interesting|
jack reminded us that they can't fly. like ostriches.
thanks, 3yrold. :)
our neighbor just got one, too, just like blu in rio!
|a pretty gray horsie|
|pig judging, this one won 2nd place|
