Oxford Fair, September 9th 2010

This year was the first year I let Tehya go on any rides alone. Last year, and the year before too I think she was scared on even the Merry Go Round. The only ride she really has ever liked was the big slide, the jumping thing where she has to harness up, the climbing wall and bouncy houses. We went this year her my mom & I. We went initially to see the animals but we were a day too early because all we saw really were horses, cows & pigs. Tehya's favorites are the chickens and baby chicks but we couldn't find any. Not sure if they were there or not, not that we saw.

After watching the pig scramble (Tehya and my mom did, I find it mean and did something else) and looking at the cows and big horses we let her do a pony ride. This was her first time ever. She did really good and REALLY LOVED it.

This was that ride that looked liked Smoky kinda (?) and it spins when you turn the wheel in the center. My mom and I were on either side of her for this one. Quick snap before we started moving.

Her past favorite. Her & I going down. This slide always scares me! Ahhh. lol. Maybe next year she can go alone? ;P

Here she was digging for "dino" bones. She really really loved this too. She was here for a long time digging over & over even though she found the bones really quickly. She asked questions and was very much into it. They explained to her the bones she found and she listened intently. She definitly put them to work, she made sure they explained to her every one, haha.

Matching the bone to the chart, all her idea.


Asking for more information and loving it. She takes a bone and holds it to one of the guys waiting for a description.

Another ride..


Tehya and my mom. She was scared but liked it and wanted to go again. In fact, she wanted to go on EVERY ride again.

Going higher..

I said after she was almost stopped, "show me your scared face".

Listening to music. First she though it was too loud and ran off plugging her ears but she got used to it and then....

..started dancing. And dancing...and dancing.

Water break.

Prior to this ride she went through a bouncy house type thing.



A fun filled day for little miss Tehya, super tired after she got home.

Still really annoyed with blogger, I hit spell check, ALL my pictures error and I have to re-upload them all. At the end of the year when I start fresh I'm getting a new platform!
