Kaden attended his first fair last week. The oldest in the state of Texas, I might add. The Washington County Fair, that this. Even though it was hotter than you know what outside, he had a blast. I did too. Nana bought him a cool little wagon and he just loved riding around in it. Taking in all the people. All the animals. Waving. Smiling. I think Nana had the most fun though. She knows EVERYONE in Washington County. So of course, she had a blast parading Kaden around in his wagon and showing him off to all of her friends!

He even got a picture with the 2010 Washington County Fair Queen, Miss Carrie Kmiec. He doesn't know it yet, but his mama was the 1998 Washington County Fair Queen. One day I'll break out the sash and crown and tell him the story of all the hard work and dedication it took to win that title. Truth is, it won't be a big deal to him. 'Cause he's a boy!

And the petting zoo. That was an adventure. First we had to wait until all the school kids had their turn. Tons of them. And I didn't want to get in the mix. He loved the animals. Mainly the donkey and goats. How do I know this? Well let's just put it this way. He thought is was funny to pull the donkey's ears and he tried crawling on top of one of the goats while it was laying down. The pictures below are my sad attempt to snap a couple of shots with my phone while making sure my child didn't venture off on his own in the mix of animals.
