4H County Fair

This is one BIG tractor!

We visited the cows, horses, goats, turkeys, ducks & pigs at the fair.
She even milked a pretend cow.
She took an interest in all the animals but refused to visit the rabbits or chickens. She kept telling me she didn't know cows were so big and that they were all laying down because they were tired and needed a nap.
After the animals, we went on the carnival rides! We drove an old motel T car on our first ride. Then she drove jeeps. Next we went on a train ride. The carnival was nice because she was able to ride all the rides she wanted for only $2.
Finally we rode the carousel. That's all folks! No other rides! It's official Elianna loves the carousel! She rode 4 or 5 times and had to be dragged off each time. I tell you literally dragged off! She grabbed on to everything she could while sobbing because she didn't want to get off. The ride guy even asked her if she was taking his pony hostage!
But back in line (with a smile) we went repeatedly until it was time to go home.

I wish I could say she learned her lesson, but we went back that night and it was the SAME routine!! She was just thrilled out of her mind while the ride was going, then she looked worried as it slowed down, then it was the death grip on the horse and tears when it stopped. We definitely got our $2 worth, at least.
