The Fair

We had a great time at the fair last weekend. This year William got to ride more than ever and loved every second. We even got to go to the circus, but William insisted he get a sausage dog before he went. He really loved the every part of the fair that David loves so much. Lily had fun too. We stayed for about 7 hours and she didn't sleep a wink. In the circus she laughed at everything. Her favorites were the clown and the elephants. When the clown's car backfired and he pretended to get shot, she got a little concerned. But as soon as the clown got up, she was the first one to start laughing, loudly. We were on the front row, so when the elephants were just feet away from us, Lily did her hands like she does to tell us to pick her up. She desperately wanted the elephants to pick her up. Here are some pictures. They are a little out of order, sorry!

This is out of order, I know, but see the scary kiddy ride down below. This is William after his first ride.
Lily LOVED watching everyone ride.
We raced. I have never gone that fast on one of those before. They had just greased the slides and we were all flying.

Pop was there somehwere, but avoided the camera.
Lily was pretty comfortable the whole time.

He really liked it.
The brave thumbs up.

This is how high it was.
This is the scariest kiddy ride I have ever seen. William rode it 6 times.

This is William's Fair Pose.
This is David imitating William in the parking lot doing his Fair Pose.
The funnel cake is what keeps me coming back. David loves the rides, the food, everything. I go to enjoy everything with David, but mainly I go for the funnel cake.
We decided to watch the cow judging this year-it was fun. We got really good at predicting the winners. If you have never seen this, you should. It is quite entertaining to hear someone talking about a heifer while it sounds like they are describing the lady leading it around.

"Some Show!"

Last Saturday William got to see his very first play, Charlotte's Web. It was a great show and William loved every minute of it. He says his favorite part was the pink pig-that would be Wilbur. We ended up having an extra ticket, so William got to invite a friend. He chose Daniel Teal, a friend of ours from Eastwood. William loves him and felt very special to have him go along. These are a few pictures of our trip. William on the way to the show-he's not asleep. He's just blinking!
The "thumbs-up" as we take our seats.
After the show, he and Daniel give us a "thumbs-up."
Family picture-minus Lily-she's too young. William had to wait 4 years.
