Every year we go to the "Fair". I think the first time my parents brought me I was 2 years old and we have been going ever since. So of course this tradition has carried over to my children. The boys' first trip was when they were 8 months old. And Madi's first trip she was about 4 weeks old. It's just something we do every year. We bring Mema and Papa with us every year too. The kids love seeing the animals and of course the rides. And my all time favorite, funnel cake! Yummmmm
One of the sheep decided to kiss Madi's hand, she loved it
Petting the horses that were there for the shows
I love this picture, it makes my heart happy :)

Kris loves chickens and has plans for a chicken coop at home
Indian Ladder had a display for the orchard. Another place we visit a few times a year.

Of course, the RIDES!!!
Madi loves them too now
Havin' some greasy fair food, of course we can't skip that! :)
I have been without a phone now for a few days and honestly, I don't miss it. Is that strange? My phone broke and I have 1 month left on my contract. Let me give you a little back round. I did not have a cell phone until 2 years ago. My husband surprised me with an iphone. While I loved the gesture, and it was convenient to text or call when I needed to, the $106 bill always made me cringe. I can think of so many other ways to spend $106 and a cell phone isn't one of them. I was on the lowest minute plan they offered (450 mins) and I ALWAYS had more than 1000 rollover minutes! My family is insisting I need a phone and I can understand their reasoning. I think I'm going to get an "unlocked" phone and just do a $25 plan from Virgin Mobile or Straight Talk. It will allow me 300 mins and unlimited texting and Internet use. Do any of you use this type of service?
I also deactivated my Facebook account. It was for a few reasons, but nothing really big. I feel FREE for some reason. I think I just like the "unplugged" feeling. Who knows maybe I'll go back, but maybe not. I miss being able to text my favorite southerner whenever I want. But other than that I can't think of reasons I love it. I'm not much of a tv watcher, I probably watch an hour of tv every month or so. I make up for it on the computer, that I am sure of! Since when have we as a society need to be in constant communication? Maybe I'm just behind the times........
