I have been wanting to go the fair for awhile, and I have always heard about this being the best one. I can't tell you the last time I actually went to a fair. Scott and I decided to take Addie this year. There was a chance of rain, but things were looking good when we left...then when we got there, it started to thunder! Once we were there, Addie rode 1 ride, played a game, and we headed over to the see some of the animals under the shelter. Of course, it started to pour down rain! Once it let up, we got a funnel cake and cotton candy. Scott had a fried twinkie. It ended up sprinkling a little on and off for the rest of the night. Addie rode a few more rides and we looked at some more animals...she wasn't too big on petting them! It was still a lot of fun walking around and looking at everything. Before we left, Scott had to get one of the famous porkchops, and I tried the roasted corn on the cob...yummy:)
July 24, 2004, I not only married the man that I met in Florida on a "girl's trip", but I married my best friend! I never EVER thought I would meet my future husband on a 4th of July trip with my girls. I guess it was one of those things that was really meant to be. At the time, I was trying to get out of a bad relationship and meeting Scott was exactly what I needed to do that! Sounds strange, but it worked. We still joke about it today:)
Scott and I rarely get time to ourselves, so we decided to go have dinner for our anniverary. We both LOVE Italian and he "kinda" surprised me w/reservations to Maggiano's. I ended up guessing it! It is now our favorite and we are going back for my birthday in October. Can't wait! My sis was there to get a few pics before we left...
Ok, this is pretty late, but wanted to pick up where I left off with the summer now that it's over...
Our summer break was fun-filled this year. I hated to see it go, but we had A LOT of fun! Since Addie was a bit older, we could do more w/her. I L.O.V.E. having the summer off w/Addie! I did put her in daycare a couple of days a week to give me a little time to get some things done:) Anyway, sorry for all the pics, but I tried to show mostly everything.
We spent a lot of time at the pool. My older sis is a member of the Portland CC, and we went as her guests. Addie likes the water, but she didn't really get to go under because of her tubes. It's kinda hard being in a pool and not getting the ears wet, even with plugs!
Our cousins came to visit for a week.
All the kids love for Papa to ride them on the gator:)
We also spent a lot of time at Nana and Papa's house. Addie would live there if I would let her:) She loves seeing her cousins there. They ALL spoil her rotten!
More time at the fountains.
We visited our Kentucky family. She also loves her KY cousins and her Nana and Pops!
Excuse the bad pick, but that's one of the only few I got of Addie and her daddy. You have to look for them! We were @ the Russell Simms Aquatic Center in Bowling Green. I liked this place because the whole thing (besides the aquatic pool) was shallow enough for Addie to stand up in and walk. It's a neat place, but we didn't get to stay long because of the rain!
We finished up the summer @ the zoo. It was really just TOO hot to be there at all! This is her friend, Ella Grace. They are 2 days apart, but you would never think it because Addie is so much taller. They were so cute together, but argued over who was gonna pull the wagon!:)
