The Fair


For the first time in the four years we have been in this area we took the kids to the fair. They loved it! We saw all the animals, walked threw all the booths, and the kids got to do a farm village while we were there. They loved it and it was a great family outing. Here is some of our fun at the fair.

Kynaston just hanging out. He loves his stroller!

Pony ride!


They had a free farm experience there. The kids got baskets. Filled it with corn, fed the cow, milked the cow, planted veggies, picked veggies, collected eggs, drove a tractor, brushed a sheep, and then in the end got a small box of milk. It made the fair worth it for them.
Gassing up the tractors. The tractor was so big Porter had a hard time getting it to go.

Milking the Cow.

There were a couple of race cars there. Alison loved to pose by them.

They were reeving the engine on this race car when we got to the fair. Porter thought that was the coolest thing!

Family Photo Shoot

Since we were all together for Labor Day Weekend, we thought it would be nice to do family photos since we have added 5 boys to the family since last September and Aaron will be getting ready to go on mission this winter. Here are a few of shots that Melody's friend took for us. We did them at the beach in Aberdeen.

My mom wanted a few of us all in the water.
