a fair experience


September 18, 2012 by thegreatwideopenblog

Despite a very fussy Davis, we had a fun weekend. Davis got to experience the West Texas Fair for the first time! He did some people watching (which I assure you is highly entertaining) while I sipped on the best lemonade in the world and shared a funnel cake with my friend Cassie. We went to a little cooking demo at the fair put on by the chef of our friend Ryan’s new restaurant, Abi-Haus that is going to be opened in the next couple of weeks. The food was ahhhhmazing. I can’t wait for them to open!  Anyways, D is bored easily and so he got squirmy in the middle of the demo…my Dad (“Bald Pop”) offered to take him and walk around the art exhibit. He’s going through a bit of a separation anxiety phase right now. Sometimes if a stranger (or even a relative) just looks at him, he will bust out in his best pout. But, look! We experienced a small miracle when he let Bald Pop hold him for a long time. He’s so white in this picture that you almost can’t see him, hahaha!

Then we went to the petting zoo. I think it went pretty well.

We skipped church because Davis was inconsolable…pretty sure we have teething to thank for that. It was a rough day. When it’s not too hot and there aren’t any mosquitos in sight (please excuse my West Nile phobia), being outside can really calm the little fella down. I decided to change up his scenery and took him to the park where he did more people watching.

Naturally, his fussiest day ever was the day before Daddy goes on a business trip for 3 days. This is the first time we’ve been without him since Davis was born. Nervous? What makes you say that? This is right before he left us a few hours ago. We miss you, Daddy!

    His pouty face is to die for. Our kids are the same…..Sinclair gets bored very easily, too. hahahaha.
    Though you’re not excited about Dan being in Dallas, I assure you Tyler is. I hope the three days are awesome and fast! Also, now I want a funnel cake.
