We finally made it to Scarborough Faire this past weekend. It was hot and muggy and we had a perfectly wonderful day!
Our favorite part (and evidently, one of the FEW places we stopped for photos) was the Petting Zoo. We had a BALL showing JJ the animals we have been telling him about. He squealed, chased, talked and signed his way thru.
Here he is "mid-sign" for "more".....he wanted to pet the bunnies "more, more"
Yeah! for the ducks, chicks, pigs, dog, llamas, pony, turtle, goats, rabbits.....JJ loved the chicks and goats the best. He loved to CHASE the chicks who ran and clucked.....and he loved the goats who stood still to be pet.
(The Royal Court is dancing in the background) A lovely day was had by all.....and next year we will try for a FAMILY portrait :-)

Not a surprise......JJ is a natural.I had hoped JJ would make it to 2 before the Skateboarding began.....but we made it 16 months instead. JJ is completely obsessed with "po-pod". It's the only thing that reduces him to complete hysterics when it's time to be over.......or if mommy touches the board (evidently this is a "boy only" event). It's adorable to watch his enthusiasm for skateboarding.....

Play is a child's work and JJ has been a very busy bee.....
