Day 187

July 6. 2011

Blake and I met Aaron for lunch and then headed over to Littleton Museum.  (here’s last time we went)

Not long after we got there it started raining but as the motto goes “wait 5 minutes and the weather will change.”  We were in an open field when it hit.  We raced toward the school house and holed up for a bit.  It wasn’t long before it was only a sprinkle and we made our way back to discovering the farm.

Since the water was calmer Aaron felt comfortable taking Blake out in the canoe.

The actually caught a fish on Blake’s Buzz Light Year pole.  Blake LOVED it.  So did Aaron.  Honestly, I’m not sure who loved it more.  I see lots of fishing in the future.  Although now we’re screw because he associates fishing with boats and catching fish with no effort or patience,

and a dandelion head.

So much fun.  Many many years ago I actually spent a month working weekends at the Renaissance Festival.  It’s a lot of work but fun.

First we caught part a show.  Johnny Fox! Sword Swallower Extraordinaire.

But had fun after a few minutes

We caught the end of another show: Tribal Circus

And finally, rode  we rode an elephant.  Blake asks almost every day if we can go ride the elephant again
