My mom was assigned to help the 4-H judges again this year, so Isaiah and I rode along with her to hang out at the fair grounds. The fair won’t start until tomorrow, but it’s still fun to go. I brought my camera and Isaiah and I had a great time doing a photo shoot. He was happy to play and climb while I took pictures and even stopped to smile at me a couple times.
Isaiah’s favorite thing at the fair grounds was a train car. The railroad used to pass through the town, so now they have one car on a section of track and the old train station at the fair grounds. The train is a little museum, but it wasn’t open while we were there, so we could only look at the outside. That didn’t bother Isaiah too much, though. He was so excited to be able to climb up onto the train car and look around. He kept bringing me back to it, over and over.
We walked all the way to the other end of the fair grounds at one point because there’s a big playground. Isaiah loved the playground equipment, but was so bothered by the sand on the ground that he would just stand in it and cry. Once he was on something, he was fine, but he just hated the way the sand felt. He really liked the swings–as long as they weren’t moving–and had fun climbing up on various equipment, then carefully coming back down.
Eventually, my mom was done helping and we got back together to head for home. We stopped by our 4-H club’s booth to see how it was decorated (since I wasn’t able to help set it up this year) on our way out. It looked really cool and had plenty of room for the kids’ projects to be set out. I’d love to see everyone’s projects, but I won’t be around at all during the actual fair. I hope everyone does well!
