To celebrate I.D., we went to a county fair. (Thanks for the recommendation, Carolyn.)
The girl is born to be served. She loved having her face painted and sat still as a stone.
Here is her first face painting.
The boy waited patiently with a hay stack while the girl had her makeup done. I can totally see this trend continue in the years to come.
The girl was barely tall enough to go on a bunch of rides. We thought she'd be scared but she wasn't at all.
The boy, however, was not tall enough. It was very heart breaking to watch. He'd watch the girl leave with daddy and a whole line of bigger kids pass by him. Then some even bigger dude would come and close the gate and tell him "no". He quietly steps back while holding on to the fence looking at the girl's back longingly. Finally, the ride would start and he'd watch and rock the fence gently while calling out, "Kiki-iiii, Kiki-iiii..." Luckily, there were two rides he could go on - the carousel and this train.
There was a kid's craft/science room and they had these giant bubble wands. So much fun!
We spent about 5 hours at the fair and both kids collapsed on the way back. I guess that meant they enjoyed the day.
