Last Sunday we went to Mayfest, a festival geared towards kids. Aleck got to pet a cow for the first time. He tried to crawl through the fence to get in the enclosure with Elsie, but I stopped him just in time.
Dede and the girls, Presley and Brooke went with us. The kids had a blast. There was a sand pit and that was definitely Aleck's favorite part of the day. He would climb up the hill and then tumble back down. I tried to keep him from eating sand, but he got a few handfuls in his mouth. Oh well, it will just make his immune system stronger.
Aleck and Brooke kept climbing in a hole this older boy was digging. Needless to say, the boy really didn't want help from Aleck and Brooke, but they were so interested in what he was doing. In one picture, a girl had just dumped a bucket of sand upside down. By the picture, you can tell that she really didn't want Aleck messing with her sand pile. For a child with separation anxiety, Aleck has no problem interacting with total strangers.
