TIME FOR THE FAIR



Nancy and I took some time out to go to the Alameda County Fair. It was Two Buck Tuesday! We love to see the animals and the exhibits. We avoid the games and rides and the food. We are cheap dates.








We started pout by seeing the baby animals then went in to see the cute rabbits, noisy chickens and some strange pigeons. Nancy is thinking of turning her kids play stucture into a hen house. There are some cool looking chickens.


We went over to see the cows and pigs, but they were missing. Probably because it was 102 degrees. Smart animals.

So we visted the garden displays and some of the air conditioned buildings with art from local school kids, quilts, baked goods which were looking pretty bad on day 13 of the fair and 3 long tables with very creative place settings which were a contest I hadn't seen before. I would have taken pictures but my battery was running out and I had to save it for the best part....









The Pig Races!

Cheap dates but SMART! Those pigs are cute. I love the arts and crafts at our county fair, especially the place settings!
