As I mentioned yesterday this weekend was jammed packed full of fun!
Saturday morning was yucky and rainy, but the afternoon thankfully cleared up so we ventured out to the Fairfax Fall Festival. Liam took his first ride on a bus, and dispite the look on his face he was actually really excited to be on the “cool bus”. When we got there, we met up with Patti, Ramsey and Micheal and headed straight for the fire trucks. Actually we were just walking down the street and I swear Liam spotted them from the top of the hill. The firehouse was having an open house so they let the kids get climb into the firetruck and go into the fire station.
He was more excited to get into the drivers seat, and yes he actually screamed and cried when I made him get out so the other kids could have a turn. Great news for Liam, the teacher at his school told me that they will be getting a visit from the fire truck this week! After the fire trucks, we headed to the carnival section of the festival. We learned that waiting in line with a toddler is not so fun…. He really wanted to get on the train, we I told him if he wanted to go he had to wait in line. Negotiating with a toddler is a lose lose situation. We did it, and he absolutely LOVED the train ride.
One of the only rides that didn’t have a line was this weirdo playground thing.. well at least I thought it was a playground with a slide.. I was wrong, there was a ball pit and a really steep climb up to the slide. He didn’t make it past the ball pit. It was his first time in a ball pit, he seemed to enjoy himself.
After the ball pit fiasco (he got stuck in there and Ramsey had to go in and rescue him), we headed over to the fun slide, where Erik captured the most EPIC photo ever…
I cannot stop laughing at that picture. I was actually really terrified, that slide was really fast. The sign did say, no pregnant women… oops. Liam wanted to ride the slide 100 more times, so being the amazing daddy that he is, Erik took him up and down the slide at least 6 times.
He was absolutely exhausted when we were leaving
Tomorrow I will share our day at Cox farms!
I hope everyone has a great day!
