the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair: A Photo Essay of Goats and Toddlers

Sunday, November 20th, 2011
One of the high lights of last year was taking Rebecca to the Royal Winter Fair for a few visits.

We only made it down once this year but it was just as magical.

We had some toddle company which just made things lovely.

Rebecca is a very good teacher and showed Poppy everything she knows about goats.

Like how to feed them.

Tease them.

Most importantly, how to pet and feed them all at once.  Little goat whisperer.

We did not eat these, but man oh man did Rebecca think they looked good.  APPLES!

Then we moved on to the cows.  Lots of calves too.

Hay is actually more fun than cows though.  Ridiculous!

I couldn’t tell if she wanted in with the sheep or was trying to let them out.  Mischief was the general idea though.

We need chickens.

Gorgeous Prize winning Russets. I might like apples more than the average visitor.  As I edit photos I see that there are quite a few apple photos.

Once she had her fill of the best Apple Chips, she was done.  Totally done.

So we took the train home to eat little pies. See you next year goats!

November 12th, 2011 It’s full fledged fall and the trees are bare.  Good Thing Rebecca is willing to earn her keep.
November 13th, 2011 Fantastic fractals! A Romanesco Broccoli came in our Leslieville Farmers Market Winter Mix.  Our friend Angela thinks they look like snapping turtles and when we told Rebecca to eat her turtle she replied, “no turtle, dinosaur!” and then roared while eating it.
November 14th, 2011 More earning their keep.  Ryan teaches Rebecca to glue seed packs.  Next year I’m putting her in charge of production.
 November 16th, 2011 The Church garden at the end of our street.
November 17th, 2011 Our walk home from nursery school can be rather wonderful.
November 18th, 2011 Rebecca has a new hand me down trike.  It needed some repairs, which she helped with and now it’s “Beck’s Bike”.
