On Friday the girls and I drove to WashMO to spend the night and be at the Town & Country Fair early. After my dad got home from work we went to dinner at Hawthorne (a family favorite) in nearby Labadie. Clem settled into her Frozen bed ("wif Frozen sheets and a Frozen pillow!" - Clem) and Josie slept next to me, waking at one point with her now-nightly night terrors. This one consisted of her shouting I WANNA GO ON A BIG TRUCK! I WANNA GO ON A BIG TRUCK! (I think we had talked about seeing trucks and tractors at the fair).
The weather was absolutely perfect -- overcast and 75 degrees. We were there about 30 minutes after opening - not much crowd yet.
With Pop Pop.
Luke had a gig Friday night and drove to Washington in the morning. He found us in Agri-Land. The girls petted piglets, a calf, goats, sheep, and played in a shallow pit of soybeans.
The royal wave.
She loved the teacups.
Our last ride was a very small roller coaster that lasted about 6 minutes - so long.
Root beer floats by the tractor pull.
Luke and I spent Saturday afternoon and evening meal prepping for the week: beef/onion/mushroom kebabs, Thai peanut chicken kebabs, flank steak, green beans, bacon and eggs.
On Sunday the girls and I went to the gym (where I did squats and weighted lunges that made walking painful for three days) and to lunch with Jenny. At three we went to see a house that we both liked a lot (hopes: UP) and because it was in a partially renovated but uninhabitable state, necessitated a commercial loan requiring a 20% down payment of the projected finished cost (hopes: DASHED).
