Here are the big kids two years ago at the library-Sara Beth, Richard Lewis, Eady. (Can you tell who are the siblings?!)

Sara Beth had a great time going down the huge slide! She would have done this all day!
They even gave away pumpkins. Poor Eady didn't feel well at all. She enjoyed the pumpkins, getting her face painted, and getting a charicature done. So I didn't get too many pictures of her this time!

on a side note--i get really annoyed at parents who sit and don't watch their kids --today there was a girl who very appropriately had a costume on that had "bratz" written across the front (i have no idea what bratz is, but it is exactly what she was)--sara beth was happily turning the wheel when the girl walked up and tried to push her away and keep her away--i watched them for a little while and when it was obviously not ending i walked in and told the 7 year old who was in the 3 and under play area that s.b. was playing with that and she could wait her turn and then play--usually i am big on s.b. sharing and taking turns, but this was ridiculous--i thought all was fine until...it was pumpkin painting time and s.b. was climbing on a chair to paint her pumpkin and this girl came and pushed s.b. off the chair so she could sit there--those poor chick-fil-a teenager girls didn't know what to do--i just made sure she was okay and then told her we would find her another chair--where was this girl's mom?-frustrating

P.S. She has pictures of two really cute girls wearing some of her clothes on her blog! Check her out...www.bluebirdhill.blogspot.com
My sisters and I grew up going to the fair every October with my grandparents. My parents have decided to continue the tradition--which Zeb and I are more than happy to let them--they pay!!! This year we were sad that Zeb couldn't go with us--we missed him a lot! Last year, we forced her to ride one ride--the trucks. Honestly, that is what we were expecting this time. Our first stop was the petting zoo. We spent at least 30 minutes in there as she was running back and forth between the animals petting and feeding them.
She even mastered the two handed feed--which was important because there were a lot of very hungry animals! No telling how many times Bo Bo put a quarter in and got more food!
Last night as she was watching the news with My May she saw a bunch of rides at the fair. She told My May and had been telling me all day that she wanted to ride the rides. Well, ride she did! The caterpillar was her first ride. It started with a loud screech, so her hands went immediately to her ears, but they quickly went above her head and she enjoyed the roller coaster!
Of course, Baby Leigh was happy and content!
Here she is with My May on the boat! She definitely did not inherit my stomach! She had no problem doing the spinning rides! She also rode the bus, the big ferris wheel, the bee, and maybe even a couple of rides that I am forgetting! I am thinking Bo Bo might be taking her on arm band day next year! She would have ridden and ridden, but we had to cut her off because it was bedtime!

The older girls had fun in the petting zoo. I wish I had a picture of Sara Beth chasing around this tiny pig. I couldn't get one because I was laughing so hard! She was running around behind it oinking and it was running away from her as fast as it could!
Here they are jumping--one of their favorite things to do! They spent most of their time jumping and eating! They had a very nutritious lunch of popcorn, goldfish, and dessert!
