After the dinosaur exhibit, it was time to visit some modern day dinosaurs. We were excited about seeing some real sturgeon, but this was the only one we could find. He enjoyed the Oregon Fish and Wildlife exhibit. Lots of stuff for kids to see and do.
He even got to give Smokey a hi-five.
Next it was on to the animal exhibits – bunnies, chickens, dairy cows, pigs, goats, and lots of 4-H animals. We visited with our friends who were studying up on the sheep showmanship in preparation for showing themselves. It would have been fun to stay and watch, but they were showing at his bedtime!
They pointed us in the right direction for the petting zoo – where we saw deer, goats, llamas, sheep, potbellied pigs, ducks, chickens,
and our favorite – the miniature donkey.
He wanted to save the best for last…

I left the fair with a very happy, tired, sweaty boy 🙂
