The Fair

I know this post is a little late, but I just found the pictures of the Utah State Fair. We love going to the fair. There is something about looking at all the animals, browsing through the vendors, riding the rides, and of course the delicious food!

This year we went to the little hands farm. Somehow we missed it last year. The kids thought it was a blast. Everything was their size and they were able to see how a real farm works, from planting the crops, feeding the cows, getting their milk and selling it. They felt like they were really doing it.

Who goes to the fair without taking a ride down the big yellow slide?

Here is me and Kallie going down the slide.

Lagoon - It's where fun is!

We got free passes to Lagoon this year and just now got a chance to use them. Can I tell you this was the best time to go. The weather was perfect and the lines were short. They are doing there Frighmares for Halloween, and because most of that stuff starts in the afternoon and goes til dark, we got there when it opened and beat the crowd. I went with Shantel a few years ago with her dance group and we haven't been back, so this was Kallies first trip! She didn't know what to expect and was a little scared to go on the rides at first. So Shantel got on a ride and Kallie watched watched at her sister having fun, so we decided to do a little bit of a slower ride to start Kallie off. The cars below were just perfect to let her get a taste of what fun she could be having.
If you are able to click on these 2 pictures (above and below) to enlarge it! You can see the pure JOY in the girls faces. Just the look on their faces makes the trip worth it!
I know there is alot of pictures, but I wanted to share how much fun we had.

All Stitched Up!

Here is an updated picture of Keegan. We have had the stitches out about a week and it looks great. I tried to get a better picture, but the goofball insisted on sticking out his tongue...esp. since he new I was trying to get his lip. He is such a trooper and hasn't let this slow him down. He is good at helping us apply vitamin E to the site (as he is Mr. Independent). You can barely see the scar of the actual stitches, what you can see is the abrasion above it where a layer of skin peeled off.
