Big day at the fair

My in-laws took us all to the state fair today.  We loved it.  The lights, the smells, the food, and the rides.  The rides are my favorite.

We spent most of our time riding.  The only thing more fun than riding a butterflies-in-your-stomach, whirling, diving, jerking fair ride is watching your child's face while she rides with you, and then running off hand-in-hand to get right back on again because she didn't want it to end.  Suzi loved it.  Ivey loved the rides she was tall enough for, too, and so did our nephew Michael, who is a few months older than Ivey.  Jordan and I had a great time with the kids.  I think my favorite was when the five of us piled into the Tilt-a-Whirl!  Poor Robert had to sit in the stroller and wait for us, but at least he got to spend some time with Nana and Papa and eat some fair food.  He didn't seem to mind too much!

Sand sculpture!

The kids slept all the way home and I would have too, but I wanted to help keep Jordan awake.  Now it is really time for bed.  Zoo day tomorrow!
