Aren’t these two little darlings? Hope is three and baby sister is 2 months old. Hope was very fun to interact with. She is a little talker like me so we hit it off wonderfully. I love the picture of Gracie’s kissy lips. She has such pretty little features. Going to be a beauty like her sister no doubt. These two munchkins are daughers of a long time friend of mine who I get to see too often so this little mini shoot wasn’t nearly long enough for a catch up. We’ll have to remedy that soon.
Friday was family FAIR NIGHT – and it was so fun (as usual). I know I say this every year but I LOVE THE FAIR! What is it with all you people who hate the fair? I don’t get it! It’s not any dirtier than any other place with a lot of people and I have never had or witnessed any type of people issues. In fact, I rarely even see anyone intoxicated (of course we usually leave by about 11:00 so maybe we miss that crowd?). Jodi carried a bottle of purel in her stroller (naturally) – so we were all set.
1. Jodi and I dream about what we will eat at the fair. We talk about it weeks in advance. Just call me “Templeton” . I go to eat. This trip I ate half a honey and sugar fried bread, half a taco fried bread, a green chili burritto (mmmmmm!) and shared some zuchinni sticks with Darin. The hot chai was simply scrumptious but I can’t drink chai after noon or I will stay up until 4:00 AM. Can’t believe I missed dessert. I usually have a chocolate covered frozen bannana or ice cream on a stick but the zuchinni pushed me to the limit. I did have a bite of a deep fried twinkie. Could live without that.
2. Jodi and I rode a crazy fun ride of which I have forgotten the name. Darin, Jim and Aimee all get motion sickness so usually Jodi and I team up for the spinning stuff. You should see us at Disney on the teacups. At first I thought it was good old fashioned fun and was enjoying my light hearted screaming. When I was upside down spinning back and forth on the pendelum, I was so scared I couldn’t even open my eyes and Jodi and I both went silent. I think we were both praying. LOL! Our kids thought we were really cool though.
3. I love the commercial exhibits and this year took home 2 packages of the Sham WOW and a Smooth Legs kit. Jim was pleased that there were no mops for sale. I wasn’t.
4. Spending time with my family. Doesn’t get better than that. When we go to Disney this winter it is going to be OUTRAGEOUSLY fun! I am getting so excited!
