As you know, this was Gage's first fair! I think it was fun for him, but it will be better next year! We walked around through the rides several times. He normally isn't a fan of loud noises so I was afraid he would throw a fit...but he didn't! As a matter of fact, I think he liked it! Here he is watching the rides with MeMe. He couldn't take his eyes off them!
Rance was able to make it one night! Gage LOVES to ride on his wheelchair with him!
My cousin, Sunny, carries the American Flag during the opening ceremonies of the rodeo. She always does such a good job and looks so pretty!
The fair is over now, so it's back to normal life. Good-bye for now!

September 4th Questions:
1. The clothing outfit you remember from childhood and why?
Ha! Now this is a funny one! I don't remember a whole lot about the clothes I wore, but I do know that looking back, I was not all that cute ;) To be quite honest, I think maybe I was a little dorky! But...weren't we all! I remember this one particular dress I had. It was fushia, and it had turquoise flowers on it. I always wore those HUGE poofy bangs with a tight, and I mean TIGHT ponytail. As you can imagine, I had huge cheeks, and huge teeth! Now don't you think that was probably a sight?
2. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to work in an office...ugh! Now, I think I would cringe if I thought I had to sit behind a desk 8 hours a day. I'm way too high strung for that!
3. What is your must have for Fall?
I LOVE SWEATERS! I don't get to wear them a lot because of my job. There is nothing more miserable than having tiny little hairs stuck in your clothes! When you wear sweaters, the hairs are there for good!
4. If money were no object, how many kiddos would you really have?
Ummm. TWO! I'm pretty sure I still need my sanity no matter how much money I have. I mean, does that Duggar lady have any sense at all?
5. What is the best part of your birthing story (other than the beautiful child at the end)?
The best part for me was realizing how special I am to Michael and how special he is to me. I don't mean to brag, but he showed me over and over that day how special I am to him. I didn't eat for 48 hours before Gage was born...neither did he! I tried to get him to go to the cafeteria with the rest of my family, but he wouldn't. He said he wasn't going to eat until I could. BTW...it didn't take him long after Gage was born to find him some food ;) I had a pretty rough labor, and he never one time stepped away from my side. He was my rock that day!
( P.S. The McLinky on this is closed, but it is fun anyway! )
The sun was shining bright so he wore Daddy's hat for a while...
then he wore his own!
Aren't they cute?
A new car seat? Seriously? But...he's just a baby! HA!! He's just a baby that is about to out grow his "bucket" (that's what we call the infant carrier). So, now we are in the market for one of those! Any suggestions?
As far as the sippy cup goes...he's not too sure what to think about it, but it's fun to chew on! He will figure it all out soon enough! We aren't in any hurry!
