Fair Time

So on Wednesday I told Mickey that we were going to the fair to see animals, this little girl could not get ready fast enough. She talked about the animals all the way out to the fair grounds. When we got there we headed right out to see the bird house. We found the ducks, geese, chickens, turkeys, roosters and several other birds. The look on her face was amazing and so full of awe and excitement.

We also headed out to the barn where we saw goats, pigs, sheep, cows and horses. Oh did she have fun. Although she was a little overwhelmed from the size of the the cows, but she was thrilled to do a little mooing to them to say "hi".

We also were able to catch the brown bear show where we saw the bears that were used to help create the movie "brother bear". Mickey was very interested and we couldn't keep her away from the fence because she had to be close to the action. Silly girl, doesn't she know those things weigh 500 pounds??

We went back to the fair in the evening and we were hoping that Mickey would enjoy a pony ride. So on the way into the fair we showed her the ponies and asked her if she wanted to ride them. She eagerly said yes and then changed her mind when we got up to get our ticket. So we left and went to enjoy the animals again. So we walked by them again and asked her and she said yes she wanted to ride them and quickly changed her mind. So we were off to explore some more and decided to call it a night. Mickey realized that she was going to miss her chance with the ponies. So we made our way back over the ponies, fully expecting her to change her mind once we got there. She surprised us, she got out of the stroller and headed right to the gate to ride her pony. She didn't want to get off once her ride was over. She had a blast.

The next day we got up in the morning and asked to ride the pony again. I think we have an animal lover on our hands. :)
