Well, now that we live only a few blocks away from the Fairgrounds, it'd be kind of silly to go there only once each year, yes? So when I picked up advance tickets, I got another set of passes so we can go back as a family again next weekend.
So we came home at lunchtime. Ann and I passed out - Wynn cooled off downstairs with some TV (but no nap.) I did some more work in the backyard in the mid-afternoon while the others took it easy inside - weeding & preparing a garden / walking path under the big pine tree. Ann & Wynn had a little dinner, and we headed back to the Fairgrounds at 6:00.
There was a good crowd even up on Machinery Hill - but hey, we've walked around in Hong Kong and this was nothing compared to that. Wynn wanted to check out the kids' farm exhibit, which was a bit young for her and she got bored. (She got a can of corn for a prize ... she could have picked Cheerios or a bag of potato chips, but she wanted a can of corn.)
We strolled around for a while - I had a Papa Pup for dinner - checked out some art, caught a bit of a concert, and headed back home at 9:30.
|Cob 'o Corn Hat!|
|Wynn can get sand in her shoes like no other kid I've ever known...|
|The Kidway after dark ... it's so neat to see everything all lit up|
|We kept Wynn up late so she could see fireworks for the very first time! (Normally they shoot them off at 10:00, but last night delayed because the Alan Jackson concert went REALLY long ... was almost 11:00 by the time the sky show began)|
|And this is how big it looked right in our own backyard! Wynn was thrilled ... "this was the BEST day ever!"|
