Born to be wild - live to outgrow it.
And just in case you might wonder "Where's Toonces?" In order to have gotten a photo of Toonces at the Fair he would either have hamburger or fries hanging out of his mouth- since he had to eat as soon as we walked though the door- and what kid wants to do that. Or maybe a picture of Toonces running to his truck when the rain broke long enough for him to escape his hiding shelter and make a break for it.
Or perhaps a shot of him watching TV with the dogs while the rest of us were at the fair having fun.
And he didn't go back the next night. So his five minutes of fair time weren't really a great photo op. BUT, but he did enjoy going to see the kid's photo entries. That much he did do with us.
That is my sister with Isabelle and Seth. Seth not too happy about something.
I don't get as many pics of Caleb anymore because he is off with his buddies. But since he might hit me, really, for putting a pic of him hugging his monkey on Facebook I'll do it on the blog instead- he is taller than me now too.
The animal area is very nice here. Very clean. Well maintained.
I always like to get a shot of Izzy with her loot. This is only a mere portion and her dad is holding all her goodies for her. I really like this shot. I have one of her back for several years alone with her stuffed animals.
That's my dad watching the kids. My mom's back hurt too much for her to make it.
I got the ISO messed here too because I forgot to take my glasses in. Darn these aging eyes!
I spent a really long time tonight, almost missing the start of Glee - that I love- looking for a tiny tot shot of Jackson with his cotton candy because I could've sworn my brother had one for every year and I wanted to put his now and then shot. Because he has grown up suddenly. BOOM. But I couldn't find any of them.
I'm closing with a black and white of my little cousins Autumn and Madi...both little Heaths.
Very cute little Heaths.
So goodnight and sleep tight. I need to go upstairs and have a little discussion with Toonces about the tiny dead squirrel in the driveway and how I don't want to be the one to pick it up. Lord knows which one in our killer bunch took it out.
- these shots were from last Thursday night at the Patrick County Fair here in Stuart, Va.
