Fair Time with Cousins

We had a last minute visit from our Parisian relatives a few weeks back. I thought it would be fun and very American to go to the Fair.
Of course Jackson looked up all the rides and height requirements DAYS before we were set to go. He also convinced Aunt Kate to get a wrist band to ride all the rides with him.
I would love to tell you that I got tons of pictures besides these four, but after not wanting to miss Jackson's 1st EVER upside down ride, I was O-U-T for the rest of the night. Just a glimpse of the merry go round made me turn green.

Thanks Jim, Kate, MM and James-we had a great time and can't wait to see you on the other side in a few months.

4th Things First

Happy 4th Birthday Sweet Girl!

I woke Linley up with her Birthday Breakfast that she picked out

I couldn't decide which picture was funnier so I put them both in. Of course it wouldn't be right if the birthday girl wasn't sick on her big day so I loaded her up with Motrin, kissed her and sent her to school.

After a Dr. Appointment and a cherry coke to make everything better we had the Big Event of the day. Darrell's boss had a surprise birthday party that we were invited to, which included hot air balloon rides.

So those three crazies went up in the balloon and I would say the 4th Birthday was a smashing success!

I can't believe the youngest is 4 and last night as I put her to bed and tried to sing to her 'This Little Light of Mine' (the silly version where you hide it under an armpit-NO) she simply said "Mommy, I am a big girl now and I don't sing it silly anymore" sniff sniff
