A blog about raising my family in downtown Vancouver

Family Outing at the Fair

Oh the fun times you can have at a fair in the city. Bring on the farm animals, the dog shows and all the fair food you can eat. Deep fried anything seemed to on the top of the menu at most joints. We didn't indulge in any deep fried Oreos but we did introduce our boy to those delicious mini donuts that only the fair can make just right.

Outings like these are definitly a lot different when you go with a nearly one year old and we didn't end up staying too long or seeing too much. We took Ben to the Super Dogs show to watch all the tricks but Ben preferred to giggle and smile at a girl sitting to the right of me. She had long dark hair and Ben was quite intrigued by her and let her know as he tried to jump into her arms. No lies, totally true.

We went and looked at an exhausted pig and her 8 piglets who looked like they were responsible for the mama pig's fatigue. Those little piglets are crazy nursers and so vicious too! We saw fancy chickens and sheep and calves and had a good old day out at the fair in the city.

That is just so super cool, I love the series of pics too. Nice sling and it seems like you wear it quite a lot with your boy. Mama in the city out with the farm animals. Terrific!

Ben is getting too cute for words! You must be strong carrying him around like that. I wonder if my dear Morgy Porgy has surpassed him in weight yet?!!!

You seem to be such a calm nuturing mother. Never looking stressed and always looking glamorous and fashionable. I always feel like such a pile of crapola so I am not sure how you do it! How much does Ben weigh now. We want more Ben updates!!! What is he up to and what new things is he doing?

Jamie!

You left out the best photo of you two posing for the sand castle competition; I'll attach it here.

And that poor mama pig with the one piglet who was insistent on getting more milk to come in... funny how everyone flocked to see the pig breastfeeding but imagine if that were a rocking chair with a human mother and baby on display. There would be letters to The Province galore.

Thanks Lesley! Ben is 23 pounds right now! The boy is too active for words, eats like a teenage boy and moves almost every minute he is awake. Food goes in and food burns off. He has mastered the sign for 'more food' in the last two weeks. So, now he is constantly 'more food! more food'.
