We had good weather for the first night of the fair on Wednesday night. The parade was great fun, except for the part where Emma fell over in her chair reaching for some candy while we weren't watching. The Dora chair pitched her in the gravel. After that she sat in her Daddy's chair and wouldn't even bother to pick up candy. She ended up with a gallon bag full of it nonetheless. I mean, you can't just leave it laying in the street!
We bought her the "ride all night" bracelet and she wrung our money's worth out of it, no problem. One ride she did six times consecutively. That evening there was no entertainment in the grandstands so the fair wasn't well attended. The little kids had the run of the place. There was no waiting for any of the rides, unless it was running when you walked up. She rode the carousel, the pumpkins, the mini-scrambler, the dinosaurs, the slide and the big swings. She did everything at least twice and some things many more times.
We had a late night but enjoyed the whole evening. Of course we paid for it the next day, as attested to here
Showing Daddy some candy. Unfortunately most of what they throw is the hard disc shaped candy. That's something that I won't allow her to have yet. Bummer.
Grandma and assorted great aunts and uncles.
Emma is entertaining her cousin and her cousins friend. She astounded them by regaling them with tales of pygmy seahorses and such.
We always start with the carousel.
All alone on the pumpkin. She didn't care.
Riding the green dinosaur. She did a circuit of this ride. She rode each of the six dinosaurs at least once.
