The Arizona State Fair
It has been a crazy fall weather-wise. First off, it has not rained since Labor Day Weekend, we should have seen about an inch and a half of rain during the past two months. Then the last week of October brought near record cold. Two of those days had lows in the mid-30s and highs in the mid-60s. To keep things interesting, the temperatures returned to normal for Halloween and then the first week of November featured near record high in the low-90s.
Sunday was the final day of the Arizona State Fair and we took advantage of free parking & shuttle and free admission to the fair if we were there before noon. We enjoyed a day of walking around at the exhibits and booths at the fair. It was a great way to be reminded that AZ is more than just the urban area of Phoenix and the deserts that we love. One of our favorite areas was the submissions for the photography contests and some of the other crafts that were on exhibit at the fair. We are encouraging Steven to submit some of his pictures next year. The girls also enjoyed the animals and the petting zoo that was setup at the fair.
We love this time of year because of the cool nights and warm days, so you know more adventures are being planned for the upcoming weeks.
