The Good Old Kern County Fair

Recently, I took the kids to the fair!  I don't know what it is about this place (it's definitely NOT the smell) but it's something I look forward to every year.  And it's even more fun now that I have the incentive of taking the kids.  We went to the morning "school days" thing where admission is free from 9:00- noon.  We got to experience a whole bunch of new and excited things.

The kids watched their first magic show.

We stopped for a quick photo shoot while we waited around for the pig race to start (which never did).

We got to see the camels.

And pet a goat.

Evelyn was ready to take this little guy home.

We got to pet a baby calf.

And you just can't take pictures at the fair without getting one of these shots.

A little calf had just been born.

They had an animal exhibit with birds, lizards, tarantulas, scorpions and snakes.  Evelyn and I were standing next to one of the workers who was putting the giant snake back.  All the other surrounding kids were being squeamish and wouldn't touch it but Evelyn jumped in and with no hesitation at all started petting the snakes tail.  I was so proud.
