Saturday we went to the Ft. Worth Stock Show and had such a fun little family day!! The weather was unseasonably warm and it was nice to be out in the warm sunshine. I am SO not a fan of winter, especially January. It's so gloomy and ugly out, and I just really get depressed every year at this time. For no real reason. I am 95% convinced I have seasonal depression. Especially when days like this one come around and I am as happy as a lark and could dance in the sunshine all day long!
Ava saw lots of animals, which have always been a favorite for her. She loved seeing them up close and petting the big ol things.
We hit up the midway in the later blazing January heat (blazing for layered clothing and boots & jeans).
We rode the bears, where I got told by a 5 year old I was "too fat" to ride the bears. Kids these days. Haha! I know she meant I was too big.
I actually thought it was hilarious. But you better believe I did tattle tell on her. She needs to be taught the difference, ya know?
Daddy and Ava riding the helicopters.
Ava begged to ride this roller coaster. It was for the littles but still, a rolloer coaster is a roller coaster, right?
Have I ever mentioned how FEARLESS this child is? How since the age of 6 months I knew I had given birth to an adrenaline junkie? Wait! At the age of 6 seconds I should have know she was an adrenaline junkie. She tried to hold her breath for as long as possible and needed help breathing right outside of my womb.
Anyway, that child LIVES for this. Already.
Last, we rode the teacups. Ava chose this as her "last ride" and of course she wanted the blue one! She loves blue just like her daddy.
