well, i had a lovely, long post all about how nice the franklin county fair was this afternoon, albeit not nearly as grand as my hometown fair (which unless my memory is really faulty, is more along the scale of the ohio state fair in size and scope), but then my computer lost power, and i lost the post, so you are left with this adorable picture of alex watching the baby bears, which she liked, but not as much as she loved the cows, which she found to be hilarious. she has also recently started mooing, but with her mouth closed, so she actually sounds kind of like a real cow, and did a lot of practicing today. another highlight was her very first pony ride – she loved it until she didn’t, and then made an early exit off of the saddle and into my arms. and, like her mama, she was a little greaked out by the chickens, but adored all of the four-legged animals. oh – she also likes gyros better than funnel cakes.
overall, it was lovely and relaxing, and i would go back again anytime. for now, though, it’s off to clean up and go to bed. sweet dreams, dear ones!
