An Afternoon at the Fair

Daisy had a short list of must-do's at the fair.


Must look at rabbits, of course.


And ideally, we'd watch a pig getting a bath. Check. With ladies' shampoo, which smelled good.


My short list was pretty short. The vegetable display this year was tiny, we had such a hot, dry summer. But there were still beautiful annuals.


And this was the only ride on the list. And the only animal for Daisy was the pink horse. We had to wait for the merry-go-round to go through two extra cycles, to get a turn on that pink horse. But it was worth the wait. I saw it on her face. She was serious about the pink.

This reminds me so much of my nine-year-old. Pink is important. :-)

Too fun. :) I love the excitement in Daisy's eyes in the first picture... and then her serious expression in the last! So adorable. She reminds me of my little brother! Little ones are such a blessing and a joy. My brother and sister is my laughter medicine every day! :)
