Merced County Fair

Yesterday marked the girls' first trip to the county fair. A good time was had by all, but I only got about 2/3 of it on record, due to a dying camera battery.

Big tractors on the way in.

The girls' preschool submitted their artwork, so we made sure to go and see how we did. Blue ribbons!! From the looks of things, all of the preschoolers get blue ribbons.

However, Rachel's fingerpainting got a "very nice" penciled onto her card.

Charlotte's fingerpainting, which I also think is very nice! Don't you?

We got to watch Kara Mae and our friend Lauren (not pictured) dance. Kara's little class only had 2 girls show up, but they were wonderful!

We got to learn how to hold a chick. Then we got to sanitize our hands! Awwww....

Charlotte, showing off her shiny pink token for the pony ride.

Rachel, ditto.

If you'll direct you eyes to the second bucket from the top, you'll see a slightly terrified Sabrina and a delighted Kara Mae.

The girls went on the ferris wheel with their dad, not their mom. My momma didn't raise no fool!
And there is where my battery died.
We didn't stay much longer and only did two more rides--there was no way I was shelling out for 30 dollar wristbands for each girl for a small handful of rides. So we picked and chose. It turned out to be a very nice evening and I'm sure we'll try it again next year.

The girls painting were very good. Each one has her own distinct style. Now I am wondering who the "jurors" were. Usually members of the "Gallery"......
