The County Fair

Last week was the Lorain County Fair. Mommy and Daddy and I went last year but I didn't really like it. This year was much different.

The most important thing to do at the County Fair is to eat. I started with chicken nuggets and french fries.

Then I moved on to some of Mommy's turkey drumstick. Funnel cake was dessert, but Daddy forgot to take a picture.

The other fun part of the fair is the rides. I was too small last year; this year, all I wanted to do was ride with my friend Kyra.

Maybe next year, Mommy and Daddy will take me to see the demolition derby or the combine derby...

My New Pastime

One of my favorite things to do with mommy is play word games on her computer. Here's my favorite thing to do!

Live from the Poconos: Sesame Place!

I'll admit it: I like Sesame Street. Elmo, Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie (I even have sneakers with their pictures), Big Bird, Snuffy, Zoe, Rosita, and my all-time favorite, Ovejita (the lamb who speaks Spanish). So Mommy and Daddy and I made a pilgrimage to my personal Mecca, Sesame Place.

Sesame Place is an amusement park/water park. We skipped the water rides and focused on the amusement park part. Here we are on the carousel. I got to ride it twice, once with Mommy and once with Daddy.

Mommy and I went on Big Bird's Hot Air Balloon Race. It was lots of fun.

Daddy and I went on Elmo's Flying Fish. It was great, especially when Daddy pushed the button and the fish went up into the air.

But one of the best parts of the amusement park was when I tried climbing up a mountain. I had problems, but Daddy really helped me out.

Live from the Poconos: New York City!?!?

Yesterday, Mommy and Daddy and I hopped into the car for a "short ride" to New York City. They lived there for 5 years and swear that it's the greatest city in the world. Well, I'll be the judge of that...

Here we are riding the subway--this is the F Train. Not too shabby: clean, air conditioned, and they faced me the right way.

They say that you could eat in a new restaurant for dinner every day for several years before exhausting all of the restaurants in New York City. We sampled a couple of fine establishments. Here we are eating a slice of pizza at Ray's. It's pretty tasty.

After pizza, we went next door to Sammy's Noodle Shop. Daddy had General Tso's Chicken. Mommy had wonton soup with roast pork and udon noodles. She also had something called a steamed red bean bun--I tried it but really didn't like it.

Besides pizza and kosher delis (which we didn't visit, much to Daddy's chagrin), New York is also known for bagels. Here I am eating a sesame bagel with butter. Mmmmm.

What's there to do in New York City? Lots, if you have time. We visited FAO Schwartz, one of the most famous toy stores in the world. I played on the big piano. Twice.

All of this eating and playing really wore me out. Central Park is a great place for a nap.

All in all, New York City is a fun place to visit. Maybe Mommy and Daddy will bring me back again. And next time, we'll have to go to Katz's!

Live from the Poconos: Puddles!

So it rained today. Hard. I did go to the playground with daddy but we couldn't stay very long.

The great thing about rain is that it leaves puddles on the ground.

Live from the Poconos: Bubbles!

Mommy, Daddy, and I are on vacation for a week. We are in the Poconos, which are in Pennsylvania (near where Daddy grew up).

The big accomplishment for the first day: blowing bubbles in the pool!

Maine 2009: The Lake

Grandma and Grandpa's house in Maine is on a lake. If I were interested in swimming, I'd have been in heaven. I was more interested in wading and playing with Grandma Gail. Note the yellow boots: they're great for keeping your feet dry.
