Touch at the Fair

Visiting the county fair, I was determined for Brayden to be in on the action. Yes, he is completely content sitting in his chair while the rest of us participate in all things fair related. But I want to give him experiences...some he likes, some he does not. I want to push him a little. I have this idea that you'll never know unless you try.

First stop at the fair for Brayden, the bunnies. He got to hold one, while a sweet little 4H-er helped. Jeremy helped him pet the soft hair. Brayden's eyes were huge! So we are saying that he liked it! (No, Brayden is not getting a bunny).
Brayden also tried petting the sheep. At first he cried about it, then he stretched out his little arm as far as he could to reach for it!

We headed for the pigs and cows...I refrained from making him pet those or go on any carnival rides.

Last stop was the auction. Brayden did not seem to enjoy the auctioneer rattling off numbers despite sitting in daddy's lap.

I love your plan of introducing him to new things. It looks like you all had a fantastic time at the fair.

PS I think a bunny sounds like a great idea :)
