Country Fair

Last weekend, we went to a country-style fair on Richmond Green.  We had so much fun; there were farm animals, fairground rides and games and stalls of yummy food and goodies to buy.

Lauren absolutely loved it.  She kept calling it "circus" and enjoyed going on the tamer rides.

We went on a merry-go-round but even I regretted it eventually as it whirled at a frightening rate of knots when it got up to speed.  We were in high spirits when we first got on though...!

We had a picnic lunch on the grass; Lauren and Jocey clearly enjoyed it.  From our vantage point, we could see the donkey giving rides to the hoards of excited children.  Jocey was really quite fascinated by all the farm animals.

Later on in the afternoon, Lauren and I tried out some of the circus tricks.  I wasn't up to the juggling; one lad there managed to keep seven balls up in the air at once.  We were all really impressed.  However, the walking on stilts was more our thing.

Lauren even tried out the plate twirling, and with some success.

Fair 038

I think you can even see that lad still showing off his juggling prowess in the background.  I only had eyes for my little girl though!

All in all, a good day out.
