We had a blast all day today at the county fair. The boys and I arrived about noon, played all day. R joined us after he finished work. I have a million great pics, I'll try and choose the highlights. :)
In case any of you are wondering, though I think it'd be a better use of cyber-space, I'm afraid that if I make a slide show it will one day expire, and that would be terrible as I have high hopes that my sweet boys will be able to look back on this blog for decades. (That is, if the internet doesn't expire as well)
So...drum roll, please...
E goes bobbing for apples and comes out a winner.
J gives it a shot too, but to no avail. :(
N and J wait with amazing patience for a jump house wrecking ball "ride."
E waits with amazing patience for his brothers
E is the littlest actor (bear) in the "let's pretend" circus.
And J is a clown. Nate and I preferred to be part of the participating audience.
The boys congratulate each other for a graceful performance.
The fattest ice cream bars I've ever seen. Makes one feel almost okay about spending $3 on a bar.
Snow cone for N. Blueberry, of course.
E gets a pony ride.
The boys and their dad await the rodeo with expectations and cotton candy.
A nice grandma-lady offers to take a photo of the family. Take it from me, if you ever need help, look for a nice grandma lady!
Delight on N, R and J on the ferris wheel over the fair.
...and sometimes my little ones still hold me tight in the sunset. Makes mama so happy!
