We had a great time at the fair on Wednesday night. Esme had a few temper fits but she got through them. She rode a pony and saw lots of animals in the petting zoo. She took an interest in the beauty pageant at the exhibit hall that I did not expect - and is now focused on winning a trophy, although she isn't really sure what the contest was - singing and dancing she thinks. She asked me to let her wear a skirt from the exhibits and then she would get up on stage and sing. I thwarted the idea and got her a fireman's plastic hat instead. We rode the rollercoaster twice, the Ferris wheel with Grandma, and she also rode a 'big girl' ride with me which she did very well on. We saw sheep and corn and chickens and there were lots and lots of children running around. Esme played one game of darts and won a small stuffed corn toy. She cried when 'all good things must come to an end.'
