Late yesterday afternoon, we made our annual trek to the State Fair of Texas. I have blogged extensively on my love for the Fair, on my love for Fair food, and how every time it comes around it reminds me of how blessed I am. Just in case you’ve missed it, click here to see my first post, here to see my second, and here to see my third. In a nutshell…four years ago, I was standing in line ordering my food at the Fair when the fertility doctor called to say my fourth round of IUI had failed and I was once again not going to have a baby. Fast forward four years…I have a three and almost two year old. Thank you Lord.
It was chilly and wonderful when we arrived. The temp was 63 :). Such a welcome relief!
So excited to see Lovie and Papa Jay!
Eating everything fried you can think of…and loving it.
Kensington inside a bright yellow car
Smith was too busy eating more fried food to care.
Until he saw the motorcycle. He was way into riding that.
And then driving around with Papa Jay.
Me and my kiddos (Lovie had just bought them candy).
Me and Andrew
We all LOVE the barn animals.
Smith was super excited this year.
In this picture, he’s saying “come here” to the baby zebra.
Everyone got to pick their special dessert. Smith picked an ice cream bar.
Kensington picked cotton candy
Faces only a mother could love 🙂
And I picked a funnel cake…so good. Words cannot express.
Kensington really wanted to slide down the incredibly tall slide. She ran all the way to the top with such gusto. However…
…we could see that as she (and her daddy) were sliding down she was scared to death. As soon as they “landed”, she bawled her eyes out and told me she would do better at the slide when she was older. Bless her heart.
We all finished with the carousel. Such a wonderful, wonderful evening!
These kids have definitely been the “happily ever after” to my fairy tale.
