The Utah State Fair

Yesterday I opened the paper while eating breakfast and saw a picture of the fair. I realized we didn't have anything major going on and decided to go that afternoon. We met Greg downtown and headed off to the fair. The kids were SO excited even though they didn't really know what it was.

Tyson is so funny in his stroller. He has to sit right against the tray so he can look all around.

I took the kids on the big yellow slide. Preston started to go and got freaked out. Luckily they were able to stop us and overlap his burlap bag with mine. He was all smiles once we got going. At the bottom he exclaimed "That was AWESOME!"

My favorite part was watching the kids go through these various stages of a farm. They fed a cow, harvested a garden, sheered wool, sold their goods and got to buy a treat at the end with their money.

They loved to ride their rides. Paige figured out right away how to get her airplane up in the sky. She couldn't get it back down and was crying by the end of the ride.

No explanation needed...

Paige starts preschool

Paige was so excited for her first day of preschool. I don't know that kids really need two years, but she begged and begged last year to go to Preston's school. It will be so good for her to have some social time and to learn a few things. I love Miss Laura's Beary Fun 4 all school. She does it out of her home and takes the kids on field trips every month. Paige is going to love it.

My cute poser. She is such a princess. I am so proud of her.

Squeals of Laughter

After the last video of Tyson, I had to show the fun Daddy has with him. He is such a happy boy. His latest is that he squeals when he is happy. Sometimes it is so loud, i can't believe it is coming from a 6 month old baby. In this video, Greg gets him laughing good, then he squeals with excitement. So cute.
