Today we got up early to go to the Annual Rochester Fair in Rochester, NH after a full night of sleep (thank you Oni!). It took us quite a while to get out the door this morning as Liam was feeling emotional in the way that only a two year old can causing us to take twice as long as normal to get out the door.
An example of our morning conversation would be this:
Mom: “Lets put on your sneaker so we can go get in the car”
Liam: “I don’t want sneakers, I want boots!”
Mom: “Ok, wear you boots then, that is a good choice”
Liam: “I WANT BOOOOOTTTSSSS!” (throws himself onto the floor for a two minute fit)
Finally we made it out the door and drove off to pick up Aunty Moonshine and Alvine to head on over to the fair. It was a beautiful day, slightly overcast with perfect fall temperatures. If you head into the fair before all the rides are open it is free to get in so we enjoyed our day for a cost of only $5 to park. The kids, Aunty Moonshine, and I all had a blast and Liam even scored a new hat for the winter!
It is (of course) next to impossible to get both two year olds to stand next to each other and smile.
Now I am enjoying nap time to the fullest extent 🙂
