“Benny, if you don’t learn to poop in the potty, I’m going to put you in jail with a bear. You don’t want that, do you?”
Lucas at the dinner table last week.
“Mommy, these onion rings are so yummy. The chicken inside them is really chewy though.”
…. he was eating calamari.
And last night…
“Mommy I love these rolls!!! The salt on top of them is the best.”
… the salt was garlic. He was eating garlic knots.
… without the Grange Fair. Having experienced nearly all aspects of the Grange – from entering the judged competitions as a child to hanging out with my friends on the rides as a teenager; from getting my wedding license at the county booth to giving my kiddos their first tastes of funnel cake – we can’t imagine an August without the fair.
Lucas, on the other hand, was all about the rides. At least until he saw the tractors… then he was all about climbing on them.
But, Benny was more interested in the free balloons advertising local politicians.
This was one activity that was a first for parents and children alike.
Ben was a little unsure. He was all talk and bravado before we went up on the platform. He was eager and ready to “feed the raffes” but then lunged back into Tim’s arms once they popped over the railing.
Lucas, on the other hand, loved every minute.
