-orgasboard, -orgasboard! Don’t pretend like you weren’t singing it. If you have no idea what I’m talking about right now, you led a deprived childhood.
On Saturday, we took Maggie to the Erie County Fair, the third largest county fair in America! It was…nuts. Fun, but nuts. My mom was handily present to serve as photographer for The Merry Mennonite, since Maggie took one look at the crowds and decided there was no way she was going to sit in her stroller, away from the safety of Daddy or Mommy’s arms.
Oh look, sheep
Maggie inspects a llama
You say llama, I say llama
Maggie is inspected by a llama
Cornish Rock chicken (I think.) These were really depressing because they could hardly stand :S But they taste good!
Maggie caught in the act of doing her chicken sounds.
We Weymouths peruse the poultry
Maggie just had that hand on an animal pen. It builds immunities, right? Right?
Looks like Thanksgiving dinner
Taking in the view from above the crowd
I believe this chicken had an accident with a hair dryer and a bathtub
Size difference between a regular chicken and a bantam!
Curious bantam rooster. This was by far and away our favorite fair animal. You will see why in the following photos…
Maggie didn’t seem to know if this little chick was an animal or stuffed toy
Much like her mommy, Maggie has a super awkward camera smile
I have no idea what caught her attention here.
My chickie looks at some chickies
This chick just hatched. Which explains why it looks incredibly exhausted.
Daddy shows Magpie the calves
This calf was one day old, and it weighed 95 pounds. Boy am I glad Maggie didn’t weigh 95 pounds when she was born.
The five minutes of the day when Maggie sat in her stroller.
Yes, I requested that our family photo be taken in front of the “Animal Attractions” sign
Crowds! This picture seriously doesn’t do justice to the number of people that were there.
So that was the fair. It was a banner weekend because this morning at church some friends presented us with this incredibly awesome item they found at a Chinese auction…
That’s right. Behold the wonder that is X Files Ken and Barbie. Maggie and I will now be able to spend many happy hours investigating paranormal activity with the help of Scully and Mulder here. I might have actually played with Barbies as a kid if I’d had these.
