county fair and beach time

this weekend we checked out the san diego county fair and went to the beach 2 days in a row.  busy but fun and kind of relaxing...
making sandy beats

sand castle builder

relaxing mama

sand crabs!

she liked putting the sand crabs on top of the castle

admiring one of the amazing wood  displays

love this...

tons of pretty stones like this

and glow in the dark ones too!  i imagine that top left one as krytponite.

sifting for stone treasures

it's not the fair without fried food! pictured here, kool-aid and avaocado.  yes, deep-fried kool-aid.  we thought it was pretty good!  i didn't have room for red velvet funnel cake but it looked amazing too.

waiting to see the baby elephants

she won this snake on the midway and was so happy she had to give it a big hug
 last year we enjoyed the fair but the traffic and parking was so horrendous that i seriously doubted we go again this year.  so i was pleasantly surprised to find out that they were running a special with public transit.  it was super cheap to take a round-trip train ride with admission to the fair included.  so a train ride for the little ones, no traffic or parking hassles, AND discountes fares?!  that was the best and easiest decision i made all weekend.
