Vic and I spent a fantastic day at the Orange County Fair this past Sunday. We went with our son Scott, his wife, Nicole, and their three preschoolers, Allison, Lauren and Megan. This was the girls' first visit to the O.C. Fair, although they've attended the San Diego County Fair at Del Mar in the past.
We made Centennial Farm our first destination, because of the large variety of farm animals there. I asked the girls what they wanted to see most at the fair.
"I want to see a pig's heinie," announced 5-year-old Lauren.
"Yes," Allison, her twin sister, agreed. "They're funny."
I must confess, I've never found any humor in a pig's back end. But if that's what the girls wanted to see, that's where we would go. However, we started with the dairy cattle because they were the first animals the girls saw. Centennial Farm maintains a small herd of Holsteins so schoolchildren can see milking demonstrations throughout the year.
