We spent a few hours at the Carp Fair today. It's the last country fair of the year and we managed to get it squeezed into our schedule. We normally go to the Perth Fair which is a few weeks earlier, but it didn't work out this year because of our house renovations. And if I remember correctly the weather wasn't brilliant that Saturday either. There was a pretty big black cloud today too, but thankfully it didn't come to anything. From the moment we arrived Lilah wanted to go on the ferris wheel. She talked and talked and talked about it, and quite frankly I thought it was just a little idea she had in her head and was kinda hoping that it would disappear. But it didn't. And guess who got the pleasure of joining her on the ferris wheel? Yes, me. Have I mentioned before that heights are not my thing? Lilah, on the other hand, hasn't got the sense to be afraid and our little face-painted-pussy-cat squealed with glee. It was fun to see her reaction, even though I am normally more of a carousel or bouncy castle kind of Mama! Baba joined her for some more fun in the bumping cars and afterwards told me (with disgust) that they were SO slow. I'm not sure what he was expecting? I guess it's been a while since he's been in a bumping car, and when your 8 or 10 years old they probably do feel speedier than when you're, err, 30? Ahem! Or something close to that! What a fun day we had.
