Alameda County Fair

We are lucky to have the Alameda County Fair right in our town! We get free tickets every year through being fans of different things on Facebook. We picked a weekday and went as soon as it opened, so we were able to park in town and walk less than a block to get there. The whole day was totally free for us, so we let Owen spend some money on rides. He thought that was a pretty good deal. It was over 100 degrees, so we only stayed for about 2 hours rather than all day. Next year we may try coming at night when it's not roasting!

These kiddies love to color.

Figuring out what we're going to see first.

Animals! We saw the barn where all the 4H animals were kept.

We had just finished reading "Charlotte's Web", so the pigs were a big hit.

Model railroads.

Owen likes those dinosaurs in the model railroad.

Motocross show!

It kinda freaked Owen out a little.

Watching the pig races

It was suuuuuuper hot that day - 102 degrees.

Racing cars!

Taking a break in the air conditioned display rooms. Nora was done.

We let Owen ride two rides - this was his first pick.

And his second pick - he loved this one and kept going backwards so he could do things again, even though you're not supposed to. The ride cost 4 dollars, though, and there weren't any other kids on it, so I wasn't about to make him get out.
