our second trip to the l.a. county fair this year was for a different reason - this time, to watch the bean perform with their dance team on one of the many stages on the fairgrounds. we got there early and got to use a back entrance so that we would be right by the plaza stage:
with the giant king taco mascot on the roof, it was easy to explain where we were to the old lady and the old man.
true to his word, the hub took the bean into a fun house, down the super slide and played a handful of games.
our final stop was in the barn to see some of the animals:
and by then it was getting hot and crowded, so we made a quick exit out the back. the hub isn't a huge fan of the fair anyway, so he'd filled his quota for the year. usually he goes just once with us to see how my cookies fared in the contest, eat a few bad-for-you things and split. at least this year, with the bean's performance, he had an extra added incentive to come.
he'll be back in 2023.
