Oregon Country Fair

On Sunday, Phoebe and I spent the day at the Oregon Country Fair. I have been a few times in the past, but Phoebe had not (unless you count while she was in my belly), and I knew that she would be excited to experience the fair. There are people dressed in all sorts of costumes, music, parades, food and shopping. It just feels magical in the fair-- there is a special energy inside that you don't find most places.
We had a fun time but it was really crowded, and we got stuck in some serious traffic on the way home. I think that next year I will try and go for the day on Friday instead of Sunday.
I didn't get a chance to take too many photos, because I was wheeling a stroller through crowds, but here are a few that I did get:

Pin It Now!


  1. How wonderful to spend the day with your little miss. Looks like a ton of fun.

  2. Such a fun place! I love the things you do with your kids. Lots of adventures!

  3. Love it! I captured some VERY similar shots to you actually :) Glad you're doing well!
