a peek at the county fair

saturday our little family met up with
my sister and her fam and our kelly.
(she is our kelly because she is elijah's babysitter. and she is stuck with us. forever.)
we enjoyed corn dogs and people watching.
a few rides and cotton candy. so much fun!
i was most impressed with the darling little petting zoo.
it wasn't little at all, really.
tons of sweet farm animal friends to hang out with!
elijah was enjoying the creatures, but feeling a little skeptical;)
in elijah's brief history of riding rides,
this is how almost all photos have turned out.
it's like he has to inspect every last detail.
of everything. engineering in his future perhaps?
i was snapping a photo of my
bubble gum shaved ice-fave!!-and elijah leaned up
into the scene.

linking up with heather!
go check out more of life made lovely!
