MiniM.E. didn't really remember Kay's first visit, but she was still so excited that she was coming that she asked if we could go pick her up at the train station a week early!! Needless to say, she was beyond excited Monday morning. Of course though, in typical toddler-style, as soon as Kay stepped off the train, she turned on the shy and wouldn't even look at her. It didn't last long and by the end of the day MiniM.E. was her usual talkative self.
On the way home from the train station, we stopped out for lunch and then rode the carousel:
Of course, as soon as we arrived downtown, MiniM.E. decided she wanted to spend the morning watching cars... on the curb... in the sun...
We finally convinced her to come shopping with us. And no visit to downtown is complete without a visit to our favorite dog statues:
We finished off our morning out with lunch at the Iron Roost-- best waffles in the Saratoga area!
That evening we went to the Saratoga County State Fair. It was hot, but we all had a great time. Pig racing, rides, a grizzly bear, funnel cake and deep fried avocado... Doesn't get better than that!

|we saw the pig races|
|MiniM.E., Kay and Bob (but not pregnant me) rode the giant ferris wheel|
|Poor Daddy had to squeeze onto the dragon ride|
|MiniM.E.'s favorite ride was the swings|
|and we saw the grizzly bear show|
I hardly recognized my kid all decked out in the headband from Kay and "a tutu that looks pretty with the headband".
MiniM.E. had a great time with Kay and can't wait for her to come back and visit. I don't blame her, she spoiled MiniM.E. just like a grandmother would!-- She's MiniM.E.'s Texas Grandma! Thanks for visiting Kay!!
