A Date to the Fair

The Los Angeles County fair is in town, a month long of fair fun-ness. I love the fair and for no particular reason. I don't go for the fried foods, I don't ride the rides and not because I am scared but I do go for two things: ice cream from Dr. Bob's and to look at the animals. Last Wednesday, Sean and I went on a hot date to the fair and it was a hot date because it is with my husband and why not! 
The first year Sean and I were married and I took him to the fair, it was birthday concert tickets to Boys II Men and Sean didn't understand my love for the fair. He said the following year we would give ourself more time at the fair. The second year at the fair, he began to understand why I look forward to one evening in September for me to fulfill my annual quota of animals and Dr. Bob's ice cream. This year, we didn't give ourselves enough time to eat ice cream, view the animals and of course people watch ;-) So we will be going back for another evening before the fair closes this year.
Enjoy a few photos from our date at the fair.



The piglets were very activity when we were at their pen.


Fresh milk anyone?

Of course Dr. Bob's ice cream
I had a Mississippi mudpie ice cream on a cone and Sean had peach and vanilla bean.


We spent some time playing hangman.

And that was our hot date at the fair.

Those are mine and my husband's favorite parts of fairs too! He's like the animal whisperer, so once he's around he's surrounded by llamas and goats! It's pretty funny.

CALLIE said...

So fun!! I go for the chicken on a stick and funnel cakes!! And to people watch, of course. The crazies come from all around down here.

If you have an idea in your head for the perfect ice cream, then oh boy! Nothing beats it! Usually, if I happen to stumble into the fair, it is surprisingly more fun than I would think! Looks like you two have the perfect time!

I love fairs too and this looks like a particularly fun one! There's a 'rounding of the sheep' fair next week and I'm so bummed that I won't be able to make it! I'm glad it's getting warmer here so I can finally enjoy some ice cream :)
