Nez Perce County Fair

Fair time is always around Caleb's birthday, so it's fun to be able to wrap up summer with those two events. We decided to take the boys to the fair on Friday, the day after Caleb's birthday, and I am so glad we did, because I think it was our last warm day of the year. It was actually hot, in the 90's, and an evening at the fair was the perfect way to say aloha to Summer. No kidding... The very next day was rainy and cold, and it has been chilly with Fall in the air since the 19th. My mom and Ron took Caleb to the fair last summer, as they were here for his 4th birthday, so it was fun for Matt and I to go, and Noah and Jonah are just old enough to have tons of fun too!!!! We went with Bob and Emily and Baby Etta, who you'll see on her very first fair ride! She is so adorable, and I hope to have a post one day announcing her as Etta Grace Jorgens. With three boys, surely one of them can catch her eye!

Riding the Funny Bears (This was the name Caleb labeled them last year...) Noah was all done by this point. But I think Jonah and Caleb would have gone all night if they could.

The boys LOVED the race car ride!

Yes. That's Mommy in the Kiddy Roller Coaster having the time of her life. What can I say, I'm a cheap date.

The boys getting ready

Jonah and Noah on the carosel. For some reason, this is the one ride Caleb won't go on....

Emily taking Baby Etta on her first ride!!!

Can someone other than me, please look at the camera and say "cheese"?
Guess not. ;o)

Mommy and Caleb share some Huckleberry Ice Cream. Mmmmm The BEST!



Caleb would have taken this bunny home if he could.

Baaa'ing with the best
The Cows. One had a white face. Caleb said it was the Oreo Cow.
*Wink* to Grammy!

Oh my goodness! I'm away from the blog-o-sphere for a few days and I missed so many post! It looks like you've been having so much fun! I can't believe that Caleb is five now - time does pass so quickly. My Isaac-boy is going to be 11 this December -it still amazes me to to see how quickly the years go. It's so good to see pics of you all and see how happy you are!

hugs to everyone,
