‘Tis the season for suburban fairs in Wellington. Johnsonville last weekend and Karori and Khandallah this weekend. We tried out the delights in Karori this fine afternoon and Petra had a wonderful time. She had her face painted with a rainbow and fluffy cloud – an event so wonderful that she had to spend some time sitting on the grass listening to the really very good band to let it sink in. Then we came upon a bunch of little cars just the right size for preschoolers and she and Travis drove round and round the parking lot. Petra did some of the steering and was stoked about the experience. She caught my eye as they drove past and laughed and laughed because it was so much fun. And then there was her first ever encounter with candy floss..
All in all, it was a most excellent day.
It’s wonderful to see her so pleased and joyful about the little pleasures in life. She’s a very fun companion because she’s delighted about everything.
