Evan visits the Ross County Fair

Last Saturday we took Evan for a visit to the Ross County Fair, along with my mom and dad. The main objective of the fair trip was for Evan to have the opportunity to see some real, live, FARM ANIMALS! Evan can chime in with the appropriate animal sounds for a: cow, sheep, horse, cat, and dog, which makes him advanced for his age, right?

Well, let me tell you, the sweet little “ba-aa-aa” that Evan is used to hearing when we discuss the sheep is a far cry from the rough, guttural BAAHHHHH noise we heard coming from the fair-sheep. Evan must have surely been thinking to himself, “really? THAT THING is a sheep?”

He also had the chance to check out some cows, goats, a horse, and some pigs. He held it together until the pigs, and at that point, tears were involved.

All in all, a fun trip, if not somewhat overwhelming for little dude.

    I LOVE that last picture! His smile is just too cute. And I'm very impressed at the animal noises, all my Evan knows is doggies go woof woof.

      My mom has a sheep/country theme at her house, so that's where the sheep came from, and for some reason he has like thirty toy cows, so it came naturally I think, ha.

    The first time we took my daughter to the fair we had to leave the animal barns because the smells were making her sick. She is still (at "4 and 3/4, mom!"!) very sensitive to unpleasant scents.

    Love the pictures – looks like Even was fascinated by it all! :)
