Our State Fair is a Great State Fair

Perfect weather.  Manageable crowds.  Great company.  Good food.  Are you getting the idea? 

I got a call from Brian this morning asking me for a date.  He didn't have any meetings tonight and I needed a little carefree, spontaneous fun.  The State Fair opened today.  That's the ticket!

We had a few stowaways, but they were pretty cute so we let them tag a long.
As always, my children never miss seeking out the baby pigs when going to the Fair.
Make way for ducklings and baby chicks.
Perhaps the funniest thing I saw were these sheep in their unusual outfits. Spandex?  Really? 
One of the highlights was the Hypnotist Show.  One of us may have been too cowardly to volunteer because she knew she was very susceptible to hypnosis.
Turkey legs, onion rings, Gyros, french fries, scones, burgers, homemade marionberry and rhubarb pies.
And who could forget the Oregon Dairy Women's soft serve ice cream cones.  A State Fair Must!
It was a beautiful evening.  I went home without being exhausted, overheated, stuffed from eating too much, nor having spent every cent in my pocket.  Good day.
