I've been posting on Instagram throughout the past week, so if you follow me there, you might have seen some fun photos of our fair adventures already. The fair is so big that we didn't get to see it all in just one day. We visited some of the indoor shopping, the Sweet exhibit (California's Tasty Journey that shows lots of candy from then & now), went on some carnival rides, and we visited The Farm. We didn't get a chance to see the animals, though, and that's always a favorite, especially when there are newborn piglets and calves to see.
There at The Farm, we saw a great garden full of fruits, vegetables, plants and flowers that are California grown, the "bug building" (aka the Insect Pavilion), and fish. Today I'm sharing photos of The Farm.
Sponsored by SaveMart Supermarket stores, The Farm was full of of awesomeness, and this is the beautiful entrance.
Some of the pretty flowers.
You know I can't resist a sunflower!
And the roses were gorgeous.
Look at the honey bee! The flower garden was right next to the Insect Pavilion, where there was a big box of honey bees with a tube so that the bees could go to and fro. I had my boys read all about it inside the pavilion. You know, gotta squeeze in the educational material (that's what we moms do, right?).
California Honey Sticks!
One pound of food was donated because we posted this on twitter!
I don't know what happened to my photos of the fruit that we bought from the Farmer's Market right inside the exhibit. Well, FYI, we had watermelon and red grapes.
Cal Expo is Home of the California State Fair.
I might have more photos of the farm that I missed for today's post, but there's more to come for our other State Fair adventures, so be on the lookout! This is just the beginning...
Anybody know the name of the flowers in the top photo?
I'm not good with flower names at all. Those flowers were really pretty, though.
What do you want to see from the State Fair???
Visit our facebook fan page and leave us a comment. We'll try to snap a photo for you and we'll share it via social media, and - of course - I'll blog about it too.
