Last week was the Ledyard Fair. An annual tradition in our town.
Warning! Tons of pictures ahead!
Hubby decided to walk to the bank for cash because we found the perfect parking spot right across from the festivities. So Anna and I hung around the library for a bit.
Of course Anna found a furry little friend. Sadly, I did not get a good close up.
Anna loves the Carousel. She went on it twice.
This section has cows and sheep from local farmers.
This little guy seems to be loving the attention.
It’s a Turkey!
This geese was loud! He followed us as we walked around yelling at us.
Angel and the Llama
Anna was too afraid to go anywhere near them.
I just love these little baby goats.
Hungry little things
Angel feeding the Llama.
After watching daddy, Anna finally attempts to get close enough to find him.
The camel was huge, yet Anna had no problems getting close.
The donkey thought Anna had food and attempted to nibble her hand.
After looking at the animals, of course Anna insisted that she needed to go on a pony.
I was shocked at how she just swung right on, before the lady even got there to help her.
We sat for a bit and watched this competition. Apparently the lawn mowers are being pushed. They seem to try to stay on the back wheels during the push because once the front goes down they seem to get stuck. The winner is the one that gets the farthest. It was interesting to watch.
Anna decided to go on a few of the bigger rides. She is like me and doesn’t like rides that go up in the air. This is one of my favorite rides.
Then she went on this rocking boat.
We found this booth selling these really cool hats. Anna also got a t-shirt that says, “So what if I Pray like a girl”. We grabbed some bun-less pulled pork from the Big Belly Kelly behind Anna. They were really good.
I asked for a Candy Apple and hubby brought me caramel, yum! Unfortunately, caramel tends to have dairy in it. I suffered a headache and some fogginess.. but it was good.
Anna, of course, went for her traditional cotton candy.
There is Angel with his ice cream.
We can’t leave the fair before Anna gets to do some jumping.
You are only supposed to go down this twice but it was late and the kids were just going up and down about 20 times.
One last ride before leaving. Right after I snapped this picture the power went out. She never got to actually ride it. She wasn’t a happy camper.
We were exhausted after 5 hours of walking. It was a terrific time and I am sure we will do it all over again next year.
Have you gone to any fairs lately?
