On Saturday we took Liv to the Big E, there was some crazy
traffic on the way there but luckily Paul knew some back roads (he used
to live in that area) so we avoided most of it. Olivia had a blast! Her
favorite part was seeing the animals (obviously). She went wild when she
saw them, she was screaming "cat cat cat". I've been trying to teach
her some new animal names but she likes calling everything a cat still.
She even touched the horses head but then quickly pulled her hand away, she got scared but then she was trying to touch him again. She went on her first rides too, the merry go round and a little bumble
bee ride. I was pretty impressed that she wasn't scared, she absolutely
loved the merry go round (the first time), she was screaming in
excitement and had a huge smile on her face. She was really impatient
before the ride started though, once it started then she was happy. The
second time on the merry go round it was the end of the night and she
was exhausted. She didn't want to stay on the horse, she just wanted me
to hold her. We also had a caricature drawn of her and it's absolutely
hilarious! The first time me and Paul ever went to the Big E, we had one
drawn of us so I had to get one of Liv, I think they are so funny. She
did not enjoy staying still to be drawn but he was able to get it done
pretty quick. We ate some delicious unhealthy food, walked around
(forever, my feet are killing me) and had a lot of fun. We stayed until
it was dark and Liv fell asleep on the way home (and so did I), it was a
really long day. It was super crowded so we already decided that next
year we will go during the week. Either way, it was a good time! When we got home, my mom watched Olivia so Paul and I could go out for a drink. It's rare that we get to spend any time alone so that was nice. Yesterday we just hung out around the house in the morning and then I worked the rest of the day. I'm working again tonight but I have tomorrow off, unfortunately I have a lot of errands to do so I'll be dragging Liv along with me, fun!
Our cartoon family, how funny are these?! So accurate too!
