You know we love the L.A. County Fair. It was, of course, the place where CC milked her first (well, only) goat -- and where I get to indulge my crazy sweet tooth (hello, Texas-sized donut! Yes, I shared. :)
This year, while going to the fair has become such a great tradition with us, we're going to sit this one out. At eight months pregnant, I'm feeling the need to stay close to home and out of the sun. It's been so hot lately, and I think I would totally melt -- or pass out, another pastime of mine -- if I walked for more than five minutes in the scorching sun.
That said, I still wanted to give away tickets to the L.A. County Fair, which runs through Sept. 30 at the Fairplex in Pomona.
In addition to the always awesome FairView Farms (yay, pigs, and goat-filled petting zoo!), the rides and the signature food, this year the fair will feature A Living Library of Fun. Kids will be able to explore 8-foot tall books and see fictional characters make real-life appearances. Apparently, children don't even have to whisper. (A plus for kiddos like mine.) They'll also be able to spot favorite superheroes on Saturdays and Sundays and participate in arts and crafts.
Hope they have all of that next year, when we have another L.A. Story kiddo to introduce to donuts and, yes, goats!
