More Celebrating!

Yesterday we made our way down to the fair again. The boys FINALLY got to go on all the blow up rides. They had been wanting to do it since they saw them the night before. It was so crowded and the lines were sooo long. And let me tell you, if I wasn't convinced before about having more kids I am now. It is too hard to keep track of a herd of kids, keep them all happy, keep them all clean, and keep them ALL entertained.
This was the night before after they each got a turn at the fish pond. They are showing off their treasures. James looks pretty excited.
There was a rock wall that the kids played on for a while, later we found out that we were supposed to give them tickets for this. Oops!
James was the only one that could actually climb the wall by himself.
Aiden LOVED the climbing wall. We will have to put one in somewhere for this monkey!
Here's Josh's attempt. He was concentrating too hard to look at the camera.
And Andrew decided he just wanted to hang there. Good thing Jill was there!
Oakley thought she wanted to climb until she actually started doing it. I love her face. I LOVED this picture of Andrew with his cotton candy.
This was at the end of the day and amazingly we are still smiling!

So, now another year until I can enjoy the fair again. It was hard, but well worth it and I would definitely do it again!

I LOVE that picture of Oakley on the wall, her face is seriously SO FUNNY! I laughed out loud when I saw it. I am so glad we all got to go! It was so much fun! I am going to miss the food since I can't have it for a whole year!

The best part of that picture with Oakley climbing the wall is you just standing there laughing! Your kids are all so cute and seem so adventurous!
