Stratham Fair 2013
Our visitors, G's sister and her family, got back from NY on Friday. By Sunday they'd gone from the big city to the country fair.
Our town fair was on this weekend, and we took a break from pooltime on Sunday to head on over.
It's agriculturally based so there were lots of animals.
"Hey, who is that behind you gals?"
Never could decide.......llama or alpaca. There were also donkeys, goats, sheep, chickens, ducks all co-mingling at the petting zoo.
Then onto the barns to visit the more farmyard animals.
The cows were all pretty friendly and one was even big on giving lots of kisses, as our niece sofia can attest. And the one cow in particular absolutely loved it when I scratched behind its ear. Just like a dog with the head tilt and would follow up with a thank you kiss. Classic.
There was a bevy of farmyard animals including piggies. Who knew they loved each other so much that had to snuggle when sleeping.
Of course, there were rides.
Gar's getting strapped in for a go on the freak out with Issy and Sofia.
Oh sure, it's looks harmless enough.
I opted for picture taking on this one, but we did a couple of rounds on the good old Tilt A Whirl and laughed through the entire thing both times. We also took a ride on Pharoah's Fury, which basically is a giant boat like ride that swings back and forth like a pendulum until it's at a 90 degree angle. Oh yeah.

Not sure this video gives the true effect, but you get the idea. I'll have to see if Gar got any shots of us on it. This is at some other fair.
Our nephew Niketas went on with me and Sophia, but he much prefered the shooting gallery.
A good time had by one and all.
Ciao for now,
PS- we also enjoyed the obligatory Fried Dough. It's been a long time but it was as good as ever.
