New Toy for Micah?
This past weekend we had lots of fun. Friday night we drove to Waterford (near Modesto) for a birthday party for Rylie, one of Micah's cousins. She turned four and had a wonderful hawaiian themed party. Then on Saturday both of Adam's sisters and their families visited the new house for the first time and made a visit to the Fresno Met Museum to see the "Bob the Builder" exhibit. Micah had fun with several of the activities and really liked to watch the wall tracks that rolled golf balls. Before going to the museum we had time to swim with the kids and go see the neighbor's horses "Sunny and Mia", both horses are over 25 years old and very sweet and gentle with kids. Finishing up the weekend we went to the Madera County Fair Sunday afternoon following nap time. They had a monkey show with several trained baboons and a dog that Micah really liked. By far his favorite activity was climbing up and down and all around the ten or so different tractors on display by local companies. Micah and Adam think that this would make a perfect toy at home, sadly the Lee family tractor will most likely be a "Tonka" and not a nice New Holland, John Deere or Kubota like at the fair. Next time we will definitely make sure to go earlier during the week when the 4-H animals are still there, that definitely would have been the favorite event.
