On the way to the Del Mar Fair

On the way to the Del Mar Fair, we heard Liam saying "I can't reach my man bag!" Liam has been borrowing one of Mommy's old purses, a small Liam-sized green purse. It was on the back seat of the car and Liam eventually got his hands on it.

Liam had a lot of fun seeing the animals. We saw cows, goats, rabbits, pigs... He sang "Old MacDonald's Farm" as we walked through the barns. He enjoyed feeding the goats and one of the cows, which he did one pellet at a time.

We brought Liam's backpack with the leash and he loved running ahead of us. Once in a while he'd notice the leash and try to pull it away from me.

Liam's first ride at the Fair ever was a whale ride with Mommy. It was made even better by a bubble machine that they rode by on each rotation. He wanted Mommy to start it again when it was over.

Liam also rode the Jumbo elephant ride with Daddy. He was excited every time the ride went up high.

Liam wanted to ride the bumper cars and some other rides that he was just too small for. He even picked out the orange car for himself. We told him he'd be big enough next year and he was okay with that.

So what did we eat? Liam had a hamburger and fries. Mommy had a chicken kabob and grilled corn. Daddy had a Philly cheesesteak. We also had deep-fried Oreos and funnel cake. We didn't have any trouble at all getting Liam to try any of the desserts!

Liam thought the Fair was like the Zoo and Disneyland combined. A pretty good description!

Thanks for NOT doing that on my birthday...

Liam woke up a little while ago, and as I usually do, I leaned over to kiss him good morning & ask how he was feeling. Got my answer when he projectile-vomited right up into my face! (Subtlety has never been one of Liam's strong suits.) Not the greatest way to start the day, let me tell you.

He seems fine now, no fever, and he's out eating breakfast with Daddy. Fortunately, he asked for "toast bread" for breakfast, so we didn't have to fight him about not getting a yogurt or something like that this morning.

On the plus side, today is almost bound to get better, right?

"I'm playing Wonder Pets on the harmonica!"

Liam understands the concept of playing music on an instrument, if his comment is any indication.  I can only hope he doesn't figure out how to play the "Wonder Pets" theme on any musical instrument! It's definitely an earworm.
