Fun at the Fair!

We had so much fun at the fair!
We enjoyed sno cones, curly fries, turkey legs, ice cream and fudge
We rode rides
Looked at animals
And walked around the Expo
The kids loved it
Chad and I loved it
It was a fantastic day together!

 Petting a cow - Tanner wasn't quite so sure about it
 Ready to ride the rides!
 The motorcycles - always a favorite!

 Spider swings!
 Finally big enough to ride the "lay down" ride!
 Roller coaster - they love the front!!
 Crazy car!  Crazy face!
 Final ride of the day - gigantic slide!  Love those faces.
 Tyler HAD to have a pickle!  The whole family shared it.
 Ending the day with the foot massage machines.

Playing soccer with Mia Hamm

We were at the fair today visiting the Dannon Yogurt booth and found out that Mia Hamm was there.  We got there right when she was starting a shootout soccer contest and the boys wanted to play.  She was so sweet and set up the balls for them to kick into the hole (although they came no where close) and then gave the boys a small ball that she had signed.  Pretty neat that they were able to meet and play with an Olympic athlete!!

A few more pics

Here are a few more pictures from my trip to Beverly Hills.  A photographer was out and about during our few days there and I was sent a few more pictures.  It was such a fun couple of days!

Play Ball!

Take me out to the ball game!
It is the close of the teeball season, the last game for the Lugnuts.
Tyler loved every minute of this season.
He improved greatly at everything he did.
And his biggest accomplishment was hitting from a thrown pitch.
No more tee for him!
His favorite position is first base.
And he was thrilled when his Bumpa flew from Oregon to watch him play two games.
He is sad that it is over and already talking about next season.
In the meantime, we will continue to practice!
every day, in every way, we get a little better! (The team motto)

Running the bases
 Ready position!
 Taking off to first...he is fast!
 Fielding the ball, playing first base
 Team photo...such a sweet group of kids!

Chad's parents bought us all tickets to go to Legoland and we had a fantastic time.  We had been once before when Tyler was 2 and Tanner was a few months but it was much different this time because the boys were able to enjoy all the rides and attractions.  There were a few that Tanner had to sit out of because he wasn't quite tall enough but Tyler was able to get on them all.  It was a fantastic day and the boys can't wait to go back!

Ready to go!
 First roller coaster ride of the day!
 Shooting the water gun!
 Tanner shooting
 Lego lion
 Train ride
 Ready to pull daddy up with the rope
 Driving the car, one of his favorites!
 Tyler driving - he loved to weave back and forth
 A very serious boat driver
 It took Tanner and I forever to go around the course
 My knight
 Another roller coaster ride
 This was Tanner's absolute favorite!!
 They couldn't get enough.  Tanner was this happy every time!

 Racing the boat around
