It's been a while since I've done Aloha Friday, so I thought I'd go for it again this week.
This weekend is the start of Borrego Days! This is a HUGE event here in town. It technically started last week, with a town clean-up. Big Sis went, since I was out of town. Last night, Huell Howser from PBS' California Gold was at our Performing Arts Center for a meet-and-greet. It was fun! Very informative and educational. Big Sis went with me was was somewhat bored. But, she got her pic taken with Huell, which Grandma will get a kick out of.
Today is a minimum day for the kids, since the festivities kick off tonight. There's even a Miss Borrego Pageant tonight, where several Senior Girls compete for the much-coveted title of Miss Borrego. Tomorrow is the parade, which Big Sis will participate in, dressed as Cinderella. The theme is "What I want to do in the Future" or something like that, and she wanted to go as a doctor, but that was last year's costume. So I told her to wear her Cindy costume, and tell the principal that she wants to work at Disney while she went to college to be a doctor. HAHA. Clever mom, huh?
So, my Aloha Friday question is this:
What do you enjoy most about fairs? Your local fair, county fair, or state fair, what's your favorite thing?
I don't know what to expect...rides? Funnel cake? I have NO idea...so it's hard for me to get super excited. But, I'll post a FULL report on Monday!
Also, head over to Nothing But PURPLE for a chance to win Mabel Labels. I won some from MomDot over the summer, and they are AWESOME little labels!
