SC State Fair

We were fortunate to get to attend the Fair 3 times this year: once with my family, once with Isaac's mom, and once just us. I put all of the pictures into one big slide show.

Caleb's Highlights:

Trip #1- Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle Jason, Aunt Heather, and Camryn

1-Eating fried mushrooms (He told me and Grandpa on the way home that it was his favorite part)
2-Meeting J.R. Berry from WLTX
3-Watching the silly lemurs at the petting zoo
4-Riding the carousel

Trip #2- Gram Gram
1-Riding his first real fair ride!
2-Watching Daddy win at Whac A Mole 2 times! Yay, Daddy!
3-Riding his first roller coaster (which IS different and a bigger deal than regular rides)
4-Riding Dizzy Dragons 3 times because "it makes me dizzy like my Sit n' Spin!" :)

Trip #3- Mommy, Daddy, and Caleb
1-Riding the Ferris Wheel "Look at all that fair stuff down there."
2-Fun Houses! Caleb absolutely loved these this year and, since it was a pay one price day, he could just go through them over and over again until he wanted to move on to the next one.
3-Riding an elephant with Daddy
4-Watching the sea lion show
5-Eating an elephant ear
6-Running into his friend Hayden and getting to ride a couple of rides with him
7-Riding his first roller coaster without Daddy! (You can't begin to imagine how much of a wreck I was!)
8-First taste of cotton candy
9-Meeting Darci Strickland and Andrea Mock from WLTX and getting to be on Friends at Five! SO cool for him! Check out the video clip!

Day Out With Thomas

I must confess that I've been cheating on my blog with Facebook. Yes, I have joined the world of Facebook; a dark, evil world where you can find anyone and everyone you've ever known and, worse, THEY can find YOU! Seriously, though, it has been pretty remarkable. I've really enjoyed reconnecting with old friends and just keeping in touch better with current ones. But, now that I've caught up with everyone from my past, I can turn my focus back to ye ole' blog!

Two weeks ago, Isaac and I took Caleb to the NC Transportation Museum in Spencer, NC for Day Out With Thomas. We ALL had a lot of fun. Here are some pictures from our awesome day!
