More than fair

Today, we went to the fair.  To be honest, I can’t quite remember if it’s called the Del Mar Fair or the San Diego County Fair or something else entirely.

But here’s all you need to know:  While riding on a ferris wheel, you can see the ocean waves just over there.  Not that I rode any rides because I gave all the ride tickets to the teenagers and twenty-somethings with me.  I hung out with my 11-year old and she hates rides, mostly.

Her main goal was to hold a piglet.  Everything else was just a bonus, including watching pigs race and eating chocolate covered bacon.  (Two related and yet completely unrelated situations there, but that did sound kind of weird, right?  And . . . the pigs raced around the course to get an Oreo . . . so chocolate inside and outside of the pigs . . . nevermind.  Let’s stop thinking about eating pigs.)

If I weren’t so exhausted, I would have a clever ending to this post.

The end.

    She hates rides? What does she do when you go to DisneyLand I wonder. Hmmm

    The chocolate covered bacon sounds like the most fun – I’d love to let others ride the rides if I could sit and eat chocolate covered bacon – I even like just writing those words and imagining the taste…………

    Glad you can all have fun.

      She doesn’t like carnival-type rides like roller coasters and things that spin you around. :)
