FAMILY TIME!!

 
Posted by Picasa

So this past Friday my hubby surprised me by coming home early from work (ok so I knew he was coming because he called to talk with me and I could hear the noise from driving on the freeway, but I didn't want him to know that I knew :) ) Anyway the Clark County Fair was this weekend and I had not been in a couple years and Jimmy had never been so once he got home we loaded everyone up and headed to Logandale! We found a parking spot and then headed onto the fair grounds! The girls got really excited when they saw the rides and could smell all the good food! Our first stop were the barns filled with live stock. Grace (who refers to animals by the noises they make) wanted to see Moos and Oinks, although when we found the Moos and she saw how large they were up close she decided that baby oinks are more her style! After that we went on some rides, Grace is an adrenaline junkie!!! She was making everyone within 2 miles aware of her love for adventure when each and every ride was filled with very loud laughter and screams!! I wish we would of had a video of it because it was too funny! Now I must confess that she does not get the need for speed from me, that would be coming either from a relative on my side (i.e Alyssa, Emily,) or her Dad! I am happy with a bumpy car ride or a two story house (the stairs) :). Alexis is more cautious like me but she still had fun, I think her favorite part were the horses that the police were riding! Anyway, so after some fun on the rides we were all hungry so while the girls wanted hot dogs, Jimmy and I held out for the good stuff, pulled pork sandwiches and chicken mmmmm oh gosh it was sooo good, I want some now actually just thinking about it! Then my parents and my nephew Ethan got there and they wanted to eat so we of course wanted to support them in that decision and helped in anyway we could! After we had all sutffed our selves we made another venture to the rides and the live stock barns. It was a wonderful evening and we had decided that it will be a new tradition to go every year! I love being with my family, this is what I pictured as a little kid, to grow up and have a husband and children and make memories like going to the county fair! Thanks to my sweet husband and children for making my dreams come true!!

Sounds like fun to me! A lot of our youth in the ward went to the fair, some to even help with the concessions. I so badly wanted to go, but did want to brave it by myself. John is gone again to Wyoming working with my Dad and wont be back until the 25th. Family time is the best time! Glad you were able to make wonderful memories!

Looks like you guys had a great time. And what a cute fam! I wish I would have known about this! I grew up going to the fair every year to see the animals, and my kids have probably never even seen a cow! Next year...

So fun! We went Thursday - Sarah slept through all of it. Grace especially looks like she's having a fabulous time. I would have loved to hear her laughing on those rides - I love the sound of happy kids!

You guys look like you had a wonderful time! I'ts especially funny to hear you talk about all of the good food. Ricky Jake and I went too, but Ricky stopped at capriottis to get a sandwich because he didn't want a hot dog!!
