NYS Fair 2014

Since school is almost back we decided to take a day to head to Syracuse for the NYS Fair.  We had a great day, although it was a little windy.  Annabelle loved all the animals and fun rides and she even went on her first ferris wheel.  A lot of pictures are of the back of her head since she was standing with daddy seeing the animals.

Friday we have another play date with friends then next Wednesday is her first day of Preschool at CP Rochester.  

Petting a baby chick

she loved the cows - ironic since she's dairy free

Our first trip around the ferris wheel

Very windy but she's asking for "more"

Checking out all the animals

She loved this dinosaur until it roared, then she almost ran to us

Going into the petting zoo

The camel was taking a break

She pet all the animals, no matter how big

This camel was overly friendly!

Little zebra - it was so soft, like a pony

Educational show about a Macaw, Tortoise, and a Lemur

Pig races, you can barely see them.  It was a funny show.

The Sandbox

We've been so busy I've barely had time to check email let alone blog.  I didn't take pictures at the splash park on Friday and only a couple at our friends house Monday.  We went to the Sandbox yesterday, an indoor play area with tons of toys, games, and bounce houses.  We met up with her friend from preschool, Julia and her sister Katie (and of course their mom).  They had a great time, we spent 3 hours playing there.  After nap we went outside and ran around the yard, played in the water table and her playhouse.

From left clockwise - Amy, Josie, Ella, and Annabelle
This was the only picture I could get of all four of them.

going in the playhouse (on her own!!)

Pushing Annabelle around in a car, she loved this

This was Annabelle's favorite!  If we had the room I would get her one.

That smile, as soon as she stopped she would sign more

<3 her

I pulled her all around the back yard on the parachute.
She was loving it, I was out of breath and sweating!

playing in her house
