The Fair and a little update.....

Hello you wonderful blog world out there!
It's been to long, and I'm going to try and change that!
A little current update on us......
Right now in our house Hailey and her Dad are currently recovering from tonsillectomies.
For adults the recovery process is a little longer and more painful, though Shawn's tonsils are feeling a lot better his tongue is the thing causing him the most pain, making it hard to talk. We read that, that is a common side affect and that it will feel better over time.
For kids, it's supposed to be a quicker recovery, we're on day 3 for Hailey and she seems to be doing pretty good and in pretty good spirits (at least today) but I'm guessing that all the jello,pudding, pancakes, otter pops,shaved ice, Popsicles, smoothies and mac and cheese....have had something to do with it, plus watching movies all day and no school? what could be better than that?.....haha
Well we'll see how she is in a couple days, they say it gets worse before it gets better.
As for me taking care of 2 people after surgery.....at times it's been overwhelming, but i keep reminding myself
' This to shall pass '
Anyways....Onto happier times before tonsils were being ripped out of throats...


We headed to the fair- The State Fair!
It was our first time going to the state fair, and we made sure to leave bright and early so we could beat the crowds.

See how deserted it looks behind these two cute kids?

Them baby pouty lips...i can't handle it lol

When we got there we purchased some tickets and went on the some rides before to many people came. Shawn and Hailey went on the Ferris wheel.
And then Hailey and i went on some faster rides after that.



After we had our fill of rides we headed to the kids section of the fair where they had lots of fun hands on activities and crafts for the kids.

Aubrey Loved the bean section!


Hailey milkin the cow ;)


Snack Break.

And a picture with the fair mascot- it was really funny  because while we were waiting off to the side Aubrey kept getting really close to ropes so she could wave to the mascot....rofl 

We ended up using the rest of our tickets on games and shawn won this big turtle!


We also walked around and looked at animals and  all sorts of crafty things that people entered.
We walked and walked until our feet could take No More!
But before we left we stopped and got a Dole Whip and it was delicious, but while in line we saw this stand for DEEP FRIED BUTTER
WHAT THE HEART ATTACK?
I was shocked! 
Do people really eat deep fried butter?
I have no words!
lol

After treats we headed home, it was definitely a fun day at the fair!

  1. That is crazy you guys have never been to the fair there before! I'm glad you went on some fast rides with Hailey. Aubrey and Reese need to have a 'best lips' competition. I love all your pictures! I hope Shawn and Hailey feel better from their surgeries soon. No bueno!
