LA County Fair!
On September 30th, we went to the fair. Wow, we had fun!! And as home schoolers, we got in free with the school groups. (Even free parking!) First, we met Courtney, Mya, Wynn and Paige and we hung out in Heritage Square where there were people spinning yarn, weaving, knitting and felting. We also saw handmade quilts, broom-making, and soap-making. We made ragdolls there!
The fair had a special program where you could get 3 free ride vouchers for every 2 book reports written (limited to 6.) So for the past month, the girls had all worked hard writing book reports to get free ride vouchers. My girls each wrote 6 book reports and got 9 ride vouchers. They were all so excited to ride some rides!!
The first one we did was the Sky Ride. It was so fun to ride over the whole fair! Then, the girls rode LOTS of rides until Mya, Wynn and Paige had to go.
After they left, we met up with our friends AnnMarie, Asher and Clover. We looked at lots of farm animals in the big barn with them. The girls milked goats again this year!
Soon, Daddy came to meet us!! We made rope, watched a blacksmith demonstration and then went and rode more rides!! When I figured it out, it turned out we got over $100 worth of free rides. It was a long day! But it was sooo much fun! We love going to the LA county fair! Can't wait until next year!
