Lesson learned. .
Take a vacation the week before the fair!!
Boy was I out of sync all week!!
One should allow an entire week to resume a normal schedule. .
This crew came for a weekend visit at the end of our wild week. .
And we enjoyed every minute of that!!
My baby brother Nick and his family spent Friday through Sunday running around with us!
We enjoyed a tour through Alabaster Caverns. .
one of our favorite places!
Which included some hiking and critter sightings!
She also loved playing with her cousins. .
And trying to pick up this big ole guy and kiss on him as much as he would let her!!
A woman never wants to hear shrieking coming from the bathroom when company is present. .
Especially if she is to find mile high bubbles everywhere and two panicking girls who can't find the "off'" switch on the air tub!!
There was lots of trampoline activity. .
And I suspect. .
That Santa may be dropping one out of his sleigh for the old guy next Christmas!
I LOVE taking photos. .
And got to do some family pictures for them while they were here. .
This guy. .
And this young lady. .
Were the easiest ones to work with!!
This was the man-li-est photo that we could get of Teegan!
He was not too impressed with the whole deal!
And THIS guy. .wouldn't smile and look at me at the same time. .
It was one or the other!!
We did get fairly tickled at them though. .
When it got past the annoyance stage, right Steph??
It was a little like photographing an ant den. .
but they were quicker than ants!!
There were plenty of photos that got trashed. .
But enough that showed the kids' personalities. .
That I think our mission was accomplished!!
Uh, speaking of personalities. .
I've never seen this expression on my brother's face. .
And I hope I never see it again!!
That, friends. .
Is pure evilness!!
They were headed to frog hunt!!
Also pretty sure my daughter won't be signing up to ride with him again anytime soon!!
Sorry Uncle Nick. .
She was totally traumatized!
Speakin of her and trauma??
A little trampoline trauma. .
netted another missing tooth!!
Isn't she just the cutest little jack-o-lantern ya ever saw??
Oh, by the way. .
The fair went great. .
Stop back by sometime for some of the purple ribbon recipes we'll be sharin soon!
Have a GREAT week!
