Thanksgiving Weekend (2) - Thanksgiving Day

Curt had hoped to take Phillip to Rockton fair on Friday, but since we were not able, and since we were in Cambridge on Thanksgiving Day, we decided to go there for a couple hours together on Monday.  Though it was quite chilly, the kids loved it!  Jen's youngest sister Esther, was with us too, and she was amazed at how big the fair was.

One of the first things we saw was a horse show.

This juggler is not only juggling a knife, bowling ball and apple -- but taking a bite of the apple every time it had in his right hand!

The trampoline show was fantastic, though the music was bit too loud -- we kept the kids ears covered.

No fair experience is complete without cotton candy!  Phillip and Jesse were addicted after a couple bites.

We saw quite a few animals, although many were already brought home.  All the cattle were gone -- sorry Ben!  The sheep show was Monday, though, so there were lots of sheep.  The kids loved running their fingers through their soft, thick wool.  We also saw lots and lots of poultry and doves and pigeons.

And no trip to the fair is complete without rides.  But we(Jen, Esther, Phillip) only went on one since it's way too expensive.  Phillip absolutely loved it, of course.
