Day at the Fair
Just above: Jo's favorite cow. Because it was very noisy.
She was sooo excited about the fair, b/c she wanted to ride the ferris wheel just like in her favorite book of the moment, Madeline and the Gypsies. She was sure she would see the characters Madeline and 'Pito' there.
I had to go on it with her. I was TERRIFIED. She wanted to go again.
She also had her first real pony ride, did the carousel, went on a little train, a bizarre alligator. (On rides, she got a very serious, intense face that did NOT look like enjoyment in the slightest, but after each she seemed decidedly pleased. As the pony ride lady said, "She's a thinker.") Got to pet sheep, goats, cows, horses, bunnies. I held a baby duck & a baby chick. Jo was a little upset and concerned about the idea that the animals were all going home - until I described the fair as a giant playdate for farm animals.
She wants to go to the fair again, period.
