At The Fair

by Mollie

Today we went to the Ventura County Fair.  Mom has taken me and the kid(s) every year since Natalie was a baby.  This year was crazy (late buses, unusually fussy baby, 2 year old tantrums) but a memorable time nonetheless.

When I first told Natalie we were going to the Fair and that there would be animals, she started jabbering about giraffes and elephants.  Hmm… not quite.  But then I told her that there would be ponies and she was SO EXCITED!  She absolutely loved her pony ride.  She looked so comfortable up there… I was proud (I rode horses for many years).


(Thanks to my sister Laura for the great pictures!)


Ben was VERY interested in tasting my caramel apple (gotta love Fair food!).  Thanks mom and Laura… it was a fun day!
