Tanana Valley Fair 2002
First ride ever. We were surprised he was finally ready to try one.
Second ride. Loved it at first, but when it went up in the air he got
afraid and wanted out.
Way up high and yelling "I don't like it. I want to get off!" As soon
as it got lower, though, he was happy again and didn't want off. He
just didn't like being up there.
He has been asking for a cat, or a dog. So we took him to the petting
zoo. He would not get in to pet them, just stood outside and put pieces
of food on the railing for the puppies to reach up and get. Finally
he got in and he squealed and played with them. He kept putting sawdust
on them. Silly boy.
He had to have a big gun shaped balloon. After he got it we were sitting
down taking a lunch break when I looked up at him and in the midst of the
crowd there stood my son with his pants pulled down and he was working on
his underwear. I hurriedly asked what he was doing, thinking maybe
we better hurry to the bathroom. Nope. He said "I need a holder,
like Woody's, for my gun" He was attempting to put his big balloon
into his pants to use them for a gun holder. And he did it. See.
Lunch time. BBQ.
Before heading home he wanted to go on that ride "one more time" so he did.
We see lots of kids with face painting so we asked if he wanted to do it
too. He said yes and picked up this one. A batman mask. Getting his face painted he was a little leary about it but held still really
well. He loved what it looked like when done.
After that he ran around like a crazy person being a superhero with his backpack
on and his balloons tied to them.
The end of the day. Time to go home. Fair is over for 2002. Can't wait for next year!
