And were back...and 2012 Pomona Fair

I have so many distant relatives and friends to keep in touch with and as much as I try to keep everyone informed on what the Fam has been up to on Facebook quite frankly I don't want to crash facebook with everything that we been doing SO I decided time to get this ol blog started back up. I am just continuing on Blogger because I don't feel like starting ALL over again on a site I don't know how to use.

I guess I have a Lot Of catching up to do So I guess I will start off with what we did in the end of September 2012...Starting with the LA County Fair

It is tradition for me to go to the LA county fair every year. We didn't go in 2011 but we did manage to make it out 2012. We started off by checking some of the exhibits. I love looking at the arts and crafts. I really like checkout out the table displays!
They had a very cool rock n roll exhibit. VERY COOL and even better a cool little record and classic candy shop in it as well! There was ALL kinds of fun musical activities for the kids to do. Parker bailed as soon as we walked in exploring.

 Ava made a B Line to the BIG step on Piano keyboard.
 I tried getting this photo but with the kids in it too...yeah too much fun stuff to do than to pose with this background that they have NO idea what it is..

 However Parker did want to catch a wave on some slick vinyl
 Some cool displays of old stereo units...hey ...I think we had the bottom console in the 70's
 and this looks awfully like my first boombox I got for Christmas one year...
 Ah yes...thee ol 8 track. I don't know how people collect these still...Vinyl will always be a classic but 8 tracks..go figure
We stopped at the store to check out some of the vinyl and fun novelty items. We got Parker a pair of white 80's shades that light up, and Ava a Astro pop. I got some Violet mints.
Gabe snuck in a little bottle of Honey Jack Daniels from the night before and we poured ourselves a glass and added some frozen lemonade to was Perfect!
 After walking around a bit we headed to the petting zoo. The kids love animals.

 See this is the I love this animal so much I want to squeeze it to death look..sometimes she just gets this crazy grinding her teeth face with our dog and cats too.
 Where Parker is more of a gentle soul who calmly pets each animal
 Ava loves ponies so much...I cannot Wait to get her started in Equestrian sports

 She did NOT want to get off
 They had this make believe princess and knight area where we let the kids play for awhile.

 I stayed with Ava in the princess area 
 Gabe was with Parker in the Knight area

 But soon Ava rather been a knight fighting Parker
 How cool...two story carousal
 After lots of walking around and checking out the scene we were ready to eat! Oh look a skinny bar!! I did not go though.
 My favorite spot...The train city!!

 The kids could just sit here for HOURS watching the cars go by.
 Than it was off for more play time ...Ava was trying to juggle
 and Parker too..

 Too much fun for this bunch
 OO a flea circus...we got a kick outta that!
 Gabe and I headed off to the garden area where we did a little wine tasting and checked out the beautiful ponds and flower arrangements.

 The kids went on some rides and played some games too

 Ava LOVES roller Coasters!!

 And once the rides were done they shared a funnel cake

We were pretty spent and finally headed on the long ride home. I cannot wait for this years!
