The State Fair of Texas!

We went with Susan's parents to the State Fair over the weekend and had a blast. Susan grew up going to the fair yearly and now we get to share the joy with our kids! If you haven't ever been to the Fair you need to go!

Calvin went on the most rides and had to do the bumper cars. He went backwards for a while until he got the hang of the wheel.

Lydia enjoyed the swings and Susan took her on the tea cups that spin around. Lydia loves to get dizzy!

The kids got to play on a pretend farm by collecting eggs, feeding animals and learning about planting vegetables. They really enjoyed it; even if it was just pretend.

Of course one of the main attractions of the Fair is food! Craig always gets a Turkey Leg and Calvin had to do as daddy did and gnaw on the bone! Susan always gets a corn dog among many other things (Tornado Taters, Funnel Cake, etc).

Fun at the Mall!

It seems like my kids can always find something fun to do! The belts at the mall make a good hiding place too!

Mimi and Calvin reading on one of their visits to our house. Mimi is by far the favorite reader to our kids!

Lydia's Birthday

Lydia turned 3! She had a great birthday. She got her birthday spankings, which she thought were funny, went to the mall to play, and opened presents with just the family. She also celbrated by eating at Mr. Gatti's Pizza and having cupcakes with her preschool class.
