Considering you don't travel much for work, I have to say that I found it ironic that duty would call once more during the Family Fun Fair. Feeling the pressure of your job, I'm sure you are still recovering from the disappointment of missing this event two years in a row! Dry your eyes, babe. As Lloyd Christmas always says, "Harry, I took care of it!" (Name the movie.)
And while I had to juggle four children, one giant stroller, three bags of cotton candy, cups of melted sno- cone and miscellaneous socks and shoes - I did my duty and took loads of pictures. Also, I gratefully would like to mention that the camera card did not fail me this time when it came time to upload them.
You are welcome.
Even though his elementary days are years away, let's begin with Forrest.
Last year when the kids and I attended, I was pregnant with this sweet boy. The morning following the fun fair is when I took that first (of seven) pregnancy test. He did really well considering he was confined to the stroller most of the night. I rescued him once so I could feed him while I watched Eliza attempt the rock wall. Nursing him on the middle of the lawn of the elementary school, surrounded by a million people that I see on a regular basis, was super
So, this was our third year attending. Consider me seasoned. I knew to take the kids to the face painting station first. It was a good call because the line grew to be a mile long and there was only one face painting artist. She was awesome.
Did I mention the girls had their hair sprayed too?
Polka-Dottie Lottie went with hot pink
"Lottie, you knock this behavior off or you'll never eat another goldfish cracker again!" Among other thoughts. We made it home and into out beds in one piece.
Here's to hoping that you're with us next year. You were missed.
I love you. Travel safe.
