Oregon State Fair

Yesterday was opening day for the Oregon State Fair!

We went to the fair in the late afternoon.

We ate some ooey gooey delicious Chili Cheese Fries

and what day at the fair would be complete without Pink Cotton Candy!

John got a shooting lesson with an air gun. He and Richard had a good time shooting at targets! Cindy really enjoyed seeing the baby chicks being born. She and John got to hold some that had just been born the night before. These are chickens for meat. They grow full size in just 42 days! Cindy's not too sure that chicken will be on the menu at home any time in the near future!

We ended the evening by seeing the comedian Bill Engvall in concert. He was SO incredibly funny! Richard and Cindy have been fans of his since his early days in Vegas. (mid 80's) It was wonderful to see him and to enjoy his humor with John, who is now a fan. We'll be back at the fair on Monday evening. John is WAY excited about that. We will be seeing Weird Al Yankovic in concert. Should be another fun time!

I love the fair. Spent all day there and left just as it started to sprinkle. I felt for Smokey the bear in that hot furry suit. But he got lots of hugs from the kids and even some grownups!

looks like you all had a great time at the fair. we had our 3little chickens that grew as pets for about 8 years before they passed away from old age.. my kids would say we cant eat chicken with helga/hanna and helsa as our pets!

A nice set of photographs here and a lot of them are really interesting. I will have to get back again and read more.
