It was a perfectly gorgeous day, as the days in Memphis this time of year tend to be (we're still enjoying summer for all you folks up north). We put Alex in his stroller and walked around for a bit, taking in the sights. Alex was especially fascinated by all the animals, especially the cows. He kept saying "Moooo. Moooo," as we walked past them. There was a special activity center for kids where they could do things like gather eggs, pick apples, dig up potatoes, and milk cows. Of course, none of it was "for real," but Alex had a good time anyway. There was also an awesome petting zoo with some really exotic animals like llamas, yaks, and camels, in addition to all the ordinary farm animals.
Of course, no trip to the fair would be complete without some of that oh-so-yummy fair food. We finished off our day with a lunch of corndogs and fresh squeezed lemonade, and an elephant ear dusted with cinnamon sugar for dessert. You can't get much more American than that!
Here are some pictures of our day:
Look what I found!
You want me to put my hand where?!
It's hard to tell who is having more fun here!
I love the look Alex is giving the yak in this pic!

So this is a duck?
Feeding the sheep -- he wanted to try, but he would start giggling and pull his hand away when they started nibbling.
"Hey... Is your mama a llama?" (This is one of his favorite books right now.)
