Each year we seem to spend less time with the animals. The girls still enjoy the rabbits and the baby chicks. While there are some seriously strange looking chickens at the fair for judging, Anne refused to go into the barn to look at them because they were too noisy. The cow barns are located in the sunniest spot of the fairgrounds, so the girls are anxious to move on. In the past, we often spent a large part of our time at the cow barns. When Meg was a baby, my husband's relatives still showed cows at the fair and we would spend time with them at the cow barns. But those days have passed and now we move quickly pass the cows. All attention is on the rides.
Meg and Clare are ride daredevils. These two will ride anything. If they are tall enough to go on a ride, then they jump on it with absolutely no fear. Their two favorite rides were the two scariest. And yes, my children were on the rides pictured below when the pictures were taken. Yikes!
