Don't Miss It, Don't Even Be Late

I, eternally optimist that I am, keep thinking that our schedule is going to calm down. Reality is a bit different: we haven't stopped running since camp over a month ago. The good side of all of this activity is: I've got plenty to blog about. The bad side: and no time to type an email, much less a blog post. Prince Charming is holding Fennec for me right now, so I can try to fill you in on some of our recent activities.

We visited a county fair (not our county, not even our state) for the first time. We admired the animals:The girls had fun in the "old time" houses and buildings. Here are my three girls posing in the little school house:

We ate some treats, rode a few rides, admired some award winning art, textiles (including a blue ribbon for the girls' Mem), fruit, vegetables, and so forth. The girls were not actually impressed by all the canned goods. ("Can we please get out of here," being one example of their requests) They really, really wanted to visit the little petting zoo. (All the animals we'd already seen not being quite enough somehow) So even though it was late and even though we were sticky and tired, we headed back to the petting zoo. (And I do mean back: it was in the farthest corner of the fair).

Once there we saw and fed lots of insistent goats. We saw, but did not actually pet, two huge porcupines. And I made friends with a rather pushy camel:

He followed me around and I tried to feed him and treat him nicely but, well, there's not really a lot else to tell about our relationship.

So, thanks for introducing us to Fair Life, Pop & Mem. The girls are still talking about it.

And now, my nephew is calling, (Not literally, of course, he's only 2 months old. He's talented but not quite that advanced) which means blogging time is up.

Our county fair will be coming up in a few weeks. It will be time for me to decide whether I want to spill the beans to the boys and make the obligatory trip to see the animals or let the whole "fair" thing pass us by this year! If we do end up going, I'll be sure to keep an eye out for that camel!

I don't remember any camels being at our fairs in WV! And we haven't been to one in NC yet! Great pics!
