|Sharing a funnel cake|
The fair is always more fun with family, so we met Papa, Mimi, my uncle, sister, and niece at the fair. The kids loved this new exhibition:
Sea Lions! Yep, sea lions in 100 degree, humid, sticky September Texas heat more than 300 miles from any salt water. They looked miserable! We never saw a trainer or anyone checking on these poor guys. They were interesting though. They would swim in their little pools for a while then get on stage looking for some shade. It was fascinating, but so hard to believe that it was good for the sea lions.
Favorite Fair activity #2 - The Petting Zoo
This was another new event for our fair and since we went on a weekday morning it was not crowded at all. The kids (and adults) petted and fed several unusual animals.
The girls did a great job and the senior adults loved their performance!
Coming soon: a peek at our visit to the State Fair of Texas
