Recounting our day at the Fair yesterday… How were the go carts? Jack said, “It was good. I put him in the wall.” We may have a future NASCAR driver on our hands. He got to drive some electric go carts (with a real gas peddle and steering wheel) at the Puyallup Fair and he got to drive with another boy, who was bigger than he was. As unbiased as I can be I must say that Jack literally drove circles around this kid. Jack was passing him on the inside and the outside, bumped him and put him in the wall. At the end the woman running the ride said OK 2 more laps. While the other boy did 2 laps, Jack did about 8.
The fair was an amazing day for Jack. Not only did he get to drive the go carts, but he also got to ride a sheep, do the bungee trampoline, the big slide and other amusement park rides. Yes I did say ride a sheep. It is called Mutton Bustin and is for kids under 6. They put a helmet and pads on them and then put them on a sheep’s back and say hold on. The child that holds on the longest wins. It is pretty funny and most kids come up laughing. He was in heaven.
As with the Fair there is the food. Jack got to have his first corn dog, elephant ear and caramel apple. It wasn’t a low calorie day, but it was the Fair.
Will’s favorite part was watching the draft horse show and looking at all the different lights. He napped in the stroller and in the Ergo like a great boy. Within 5 minutes of being on the freeway home both boys were sacked out in the backseat of the car. We had a great day.
I will try to get the video I took of Jack driving the go carts posted soon.
