We've been having lots of fun with cousins this summer! A few weeks ago we went to the Medina County Fair, an animal-filled adventure that included dozens of baby pigs (less than a week old, sooooo cute!), more rabbits than you can count, chickens, ducks, cows, horses and ponies big and HUGE, and our favorites--the goats!
Gramps was ready to adopt a goat, they were so darn cute and endearing. They look a bit like creatures from a Star Wars movie (remember Jar Jar Binks?) and they are NIBBLY. Pretty much every goat we passed wanted a little taste of Tatum's stroller. I'm sure it's picked up some tasty flavors over the past 20 months: gold fish crackers, milk, and raisins, to name a few favorites! I'm not sure how Tate felt about the goats nibbling on his ride, but I had to snap a few pictures it was so cute.
At the fair Tatum also experienced his first amusement park ride! A spin on the merry-go-round with CeCe, Cami, Paige and Parker.
Last weekend, we attended our second "Touch-A-Truck" event. The blaring loud fire engine horns made T-man extra snuggly. He spent a lot of time on Mommy and Daddy's shoulders, not wanting to be set down.
When his cousins arrived on the scene, though, he perked right up and did some exploring!
We're so lucky to have our cousins close by.
(That last picture was totally unprompted, by the way! Cami is just the sweetest girl and wanted to share her ice cream with her cousin. Did I mention that we're lucky to be so close? :) )
