Strawberry Festival

Friday afternoon we went to the Strawberry Festival to see the Animal Magic Show.

She was most impressed with the Giant Porcupine. She liked the rattling noise it made before it shot a quill.
Also she kept wanting to go look at the turtles, snakes and a pot belly pig that were up for adoption on the side. It was hard to take pictures because the sun was so bright.

My Favorite time at the festival was when we stopped at the tour bus for Honey Bunches of Oats. They were giving away bowls of cereal and milk to try.

As we were eating our cereal, the workers came and asked if they could take Elianna's picture. They did it just like the ads on tv. We were in front of a yellow screen instead of a blue screen and just holding this huge spoon.

Elianna did not have a nap and wasn't as enthusiastic as I was (to say the least). She refused to wear the hard hat and wouldn't let me wear it either but insisted I be in the picture too. She did enjoy holding that big spoon of cereal.

Soon after the pictures we left to go home. We had only explored the Main Street section of the festival. She was too tired to go on; but still cried loudly all the way back to where we parked, "I DON'T WANT TO GO!!"

It's just terrible to be 2 when your body wants sleep and you want to keep having fun!
