Hello from the Fair! Come along....
Liv did this one twice -- with dad and with mom. I couldn't help but audibly catch my breath at the top -- each time loosing my stomach. "Mommy yawned" is how Liv described it. My invincible Mommy legend lives on -- she was thinking that I was about to fall asleep! :o) "Yes, darling, mommy is just bored looking down on all the little people inside this rickety ol' rust bucket!"
Abi got in on the Merry-Go-Round and LOVED it. She waved to Art like a parade queen each time around. I'm the dizzy one in the middle.
Abi and I took a photo of them from our elephant. More of the around & around and up & down.
What? You're kidding, I didn't I tell you that I had a twin? Here she is on the Urban Cowboy bull. She said that this is something she's always wanted to do for some unexplainable reason, and just wanted to check it off the list since there was nobody around to laugh. The shadow of a man handed me...err, uh, handed my sister a glove and said, "A beginner, OK then, I'll just operate her at a 9 instead of a 10." Comforting, sir.
I'm not an exhibitionist, but I am the spontaneous type. Example: Once, long ago, I was out on a double date and we were around a pool -- we all got to talking about how much fun it'd be to just jump in the pool and swim. We all counted to three, and the only one who got wet was me -- hair and all. It was sorta like that with the bull (only I was sober). I'm not sorry I did it, because it was a fun challenge. But, I don't like real rodeos -- at all. And I didn't notice then, but look at the nasty leather on the cow. Ick, Nasty, Horrible. So yeah, for some odd reason I wanted to try, even though I am against all that it stands for. Doesn't make sense, and I figure this'll probably offend somebody...somewhere. I don't mean to - it's just the way the day unfolded.
Guess what she won for picking a duck out of the pond? A DUCK of course.
Aren't these guys adorable? It tickles when they lick the grain from your hand. They look so happy and clean -- just how I want my young girls to think it oughta be. Where do the goats and all the other animals go after the fair?
This whipper-snapper tried to eat Abi's hat. Think I'm kidding? Just look at that goat expression.
We saw, and interacted with lots of wonderful animals -- cows, horses, chickens, sheep, pigs, roosters -- but I only have photos of the goats. We especially enjoyed them.
