County Fair 2013

I realized that I never posted our epic, mostly awesome County Fair 2013 experience. I’m not going to now. But I will post some pictures, largely because I want everyone to see how much my kids have grown in just one year. Advertisements


We brought Jackson to his first County Fair when he was 16 months old. I don’t even think we rode the rides. He just loved the livestock. Every year, the big draw has been the livestock area. The livestock area is all about 4-H. (Yeah, there are the Future Farmers of America too, but most … Continue reading

Robyn, Where Have You Been?

In March, I wrote 23 posts. So many, that at least 2 people complained that I had to slow down so they could catch up. Well, apparently, I did. I wrote only 15 posts in April and 10 in May. So, where have I been? It all really started in March. I volunteered to teach … Continue reading

County Fair 2012

On Friday, June 1, we all went to the County Fair. We go every year. It’s a wonderful way to start our summer! This year was very different. It was Cassie’s first time at the fair! Also, because Jackson’s school is on the fairgrounds, we arrived at 8:15, before anyone else was there. We had … Continue reading

Yes, it’s California, in June, and it’s been raining. The last time I remember this happening was June 1993, the … Continue reading

County Fair IV

Every year, we go to the Contra Costa County Fair. I used to go to the County Fairs with my family (Mom, Dad, Sister), and I have some generally good memories from them. Last year, the fair was tainted by the fact that my mother’s funeral happened 2 days before it. But, for the first … Continue reading

The Fair 2008

Last year, Max, Jack, and I all went to the Contra Costa County Fair. This year, we all went back again. I prepared Jack for the trip a few weeks ago, by showing him the pictures from last year. Whenever we talked about the fair, he’d say, “We see goats, an’ cows, an’ pigs, an’ … Continue reading

The Fair

Tonight, we had the quintessential family experience: We went to the County Fair. Mostly, I thought that Jack would like the livestock. He loves cows, and is learning how to say the names and/or sounds of many farm animals. He now has: Moo, Cow, Baa, Goat, Hop Hop (bunnies), Cuck Cuck (chickens), and Pig. Getting … Continue reading
