The Carnival at Loudoun County’s 4H Fair was the best of all. Grandpa bought an all ride ticket and they didn’t come home till late. The bumper cars were ridden again and again. Grandson made friends with another boy and they rode them together for hours.
A visit to the Potomac River was also a favorite. We rented a row-boat and went to an island. The water was so shallow it was hard to row but getting out and wading was superb! Swimming and exploring was so much fun! Grandpa loved it, too.
One afternoon we stamped and drew cards. I made one for my sister in Texas and Grandson made one for his Daddy in Scotland. He had talked to him for a full hour in the morning, but it wasn’t enough. He wishes he could be with him although Mommy and Daddy are separated. And have been for three or four years. His card says ” Kitties are cute but so much truble”. I didn’t correct him, but told him his daddy would love it.
The 4H Fair was a favorite activity. He loved the animals but not as much as the carnival. He went on the bumper cars again and again. And found the firemen’s talk about how to be one exceptionally interesting.Other activities we did was swimming at the water park, fishing, hiking and petting our cats, Zepher and Zooey and our dog, Midnight.We also found time for reading and a few computer games. One called “Mine Craft” was a favorite about digging into other worlds.
