It’s been awhile since we could post a new adventure on our blog since Dan has been recovering from cancer surgery. But I had two tickets to the Alameda County Fair which I got for entering my vintage piggy bank collection at the fair. So, though Dan still can’t walk too far, we made a relatively short trip to the fair with him in his wheelchair and me steering. It was nice to get out of the house and do something fun!
At the fair we watched a high dive show, visited the barnyard animals and their new babies, looked at the sample gardens, walked through the displays in the building housing my piggy banks, and treated ourselves to some ice cream.
This was my first year ever entering an exhibit, and though I didn’t win anything the judges thought my display was “darling.” Hopefully my display informed and inspired some fairgoers. I plan to enter a different display next year, and try for one of those ribbons!
We hope you enjoy our pictures below.
