The Ventura County Fair never changes - ok, almost never. We fell in love with the marionberry pie vendor last year and went back this year specifically for their treats. Guess what? No marionberry vendor. We were so bummed!
Riding the bus from the beach to the Fair? Check.
Face painting? Check.
Riding the ponies? Check.
Getting to ride Sweet Pea, your very favorite pony? Check and double check.
Visiting the displays and acting silly? Check!
Feeding and brushing the petting zoo animals? Check.
And not so check - Leanne was freaked out by the pushiness of the animals,
and Leia had a hard time keeping this deer from repeatedly eating her skirt;
the deer was much more interested in the fabric than the food pellets.
We also had hot dogs (Pink's -yummmmmm!), ice cream cones, and BBQ; bought toy swords that light up and make noise; and finished the day at Royal Bakery for the girls' favorite cow cookies*.
Now that's how you celebrate the Fair!
