I only noticed this later into the day.
This was a new and fun addition to the fair this year. We took full advantage of the fact that we were the only ones milling around at 7:30 a.m. and explored it top to bottom like little kids.
First Lieutenant Timothy McCracken......
..... his sweetheart .....
......and the crew of the Lady Sepia :-)
We really had lots of fun exploring the different elements of this new addition.
Sadly, we had a little run in with some Indians and Connor was unfortunate enough as to come in the path of this Indian's knife. :-) He made a quick recovery, though.
Since no one was around, we decided to experiment with the kiddie slides. We got a good kick out of this. :-)
It took some maneuvering, but we actually got all three of us in this slide. You should try it some time.....No, really. It's quite a "bonding" experience. :-) Like I said, it took some maneuvering. And not only to get in! It was quite the evacuation process to get the three of us out. :-)Wow! Since when did pirates give the option of sliding off the ship instead of walking the plank?!Yes.....Dad too.Only after going down did I realize the slide was soaking wet.Oh, NOW they tell me.
We found the Teters wandering around too.....
..... and decided cinnamon rolls were in order.
Here are just some of the animals exhibited.
"Put your left foot in. Put your left foot out..."
And of course my personal favorite... :-)
Dad and Connor found these interesting devices in the commerce building and had a fun time messing around with them.
*And here in the lead is Tim McCracken!*
As we sat down for a bite to eat, we played around a bit with some pictures. ( As if we hadn't already) ;-)
Jenny took the time to point out to me a "mesmerizing twirly thingy" on top of a cotton candy booth.
Here are those pictures we were messing around with. (or should I say " around with which we were messing?" You have to admit, all you grammar people out there, that there are times it is OK to leave a preposition at the end of a sentence.)
Comparing family profiles
We thought that since we were all together as a family, we might as well make a stop in Egypt.....you know.....the ultimate field trip experience. :-)
Over all, we had a very enjoyable day at the fair.
