Strolling The Ex, Part 1

 I try to check out the Candian National Exhibition (CNE, The Ex) annually. I went with Richard last year (view parts one, two, three, four and five) and had lots of fun not so much eating artery clogging, break out educing foods, but scoping out the animals, people, vendors, games and everything else that makes The Ex!

This year I went with my family for their $5 after 5 deal, which was totally worth it by the way. It's a great event to close off the summer with, especially with my brother leaving home and starting university. We hopped on the subway train and make our way downtown and arrived at about 6:30pm.

Momma turkey's beak looks like it was trimmed painfully short :(

Hi, I'm Janetta from Toronto. I cook, bake and often veganize recipes. I photograph nearly everything and those photos will most likely end up being posted here. I've got a little black cat named Tank, who's really cute and a little bit nosy. You'll see a lot of photos of her too!
