Our first stop was something new! The ABC Forest. We met Deb Frasier, the author of One the Day You Were Born, one of our favorite books. I think I have three copies. Our former librarian ,Sue, was volunteering there so she introduced us. There were some cute activities. Here was my favorite activity:
|I love it! I wanted to do individual ones with each of the kids names but it took a while to pick out the letters. They had alphabet crowns on. Oh, a teacher's dream.|
|Give the hay a ride on the tractor.|
|At the end of all of the activities they put all the items away and they earn a 'dollar' to buy something. Victoria chose a stuffed sheep and Christian chose an apple.|
The loved it more this year than any other year.
|Clearly this was all my idea. I was actually holding Victoria up into that hole.|
Who can pass up a chance to be a cheese on a stick?
This was Christian's dream come true! He loves horses! They walked right over to him!
After more than four hours at the fair we headed home for nap. They both took a good nap and then we brought them over to Auntie Sandy's for the night. Guess what Mark and I did then. . .went back to the fair for another four hours. We ate, drank, people watched and had a great time. It's the best way to end the summer.
