first thing she did was watch the horse show. she LOVES the draft horses! aren't they magnificent? these dark ones were her favorite. she loves the way the ground feels when they run them around the arena.... thunderous! and that rhymes with wonderous....
*visited the reptile room and chatted with a hissing cockroach, and various gorgeous pythons and boas. there was even an elf frog who looked for all the world like someone had squished him flat.
*ate a black cherry ice cream cone
*listened to scottish bluegrass
*ate a BBQ beef sandwich and corn on the cob for dinner
*had an iced latte (while watching the horses run)
*marvelled at the llamas and alpacas... some of the coolest animals on earth...
*visually feasted her eyes on the artwork and photography...we humans are oh so creative!!
*wound down the everning with a decaf coffee @ 10pm while waiting for the daughter to be done
things she did not buy but really wanted to:
*light-up bunny ears (her 17 yr. old daughter would disown her...wait till the grandkids come along! she shall have her bunny ears yet!)
*jingle-jangling belly dancing waist scarf
*henna tatoo or airbrushed tatoo
but she DID find this darling pixie who had just won herself a magic wand!
then the pixie went on the carousel with her auntie who happens to be this bohemian's daughter-in-law.
are they not the darling-est?!
the bohemian bid good night to the fair at 11pm and headed home to bed. what a fun-filled day. hope yours was, also. what was your favorite thing at the fair this year? i'd love to hear.
