Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young—a place near your altar, O LORD Almighty, my King and my God. Psalm 84:3

A Fair Night at the Demolition Derby

We started with 5 families at the Demolition Derby and ended with 8 happy kids and one cranky Jake (missing from photo). What happened in between you ask? The petting zoo, bull rides, sea lions, piggy races, tons of laughs and the best of friends!

A Fair Race

Sal and Jack were picked to be "pig rooters" at Pork Chop Downs.

Both piggies won there race and the boys went hog wild!

An UnFair Frisbee Game

Ever play Frisbee with 3 sea lions? Vinny was asked to play their favorite game with them. After a very "unfair" game, one sea lion came to kiss Vinny for "trying" to play with them!

A Fair Petting Place

Vinny loved the kangaroo, the emu and goat where easier to feed

Emma feed the goats making sure she didn't feed anyone twice.

Sal loved on all the animals. The sheep and goats loved him back!

Kelli fed every animal with a huge smile on her face!

Nick checked out the llamas and rams, always checking for their teeth.

Boogie Board Brothers!

Buddies Vinny and Ethan were riding the waves while their younger brothers watched...

Nicholas patrolled the stairs while
Ethan's little brother Jacob covered the deep end!
All 5 boys swam and played together this long holiday weekend.

Nicole and Jen: The Early Years?

Always Adoption....

The short time we lived in Alabama we met some wonderful people. Would you stop by BlessOurBrokenRoad and help Rachel and Tom's superheros become a super brother and sister?

Where's the Fire?

Nicholas along with his school's kindergarten classes got to visit the fire station today!

Sick Stanley

Kelli sent her Flat Stanley project to her friends Gwen and Miki. Who knew Flat Stanley was sick! Gwen had to take his temperature and care for him while he was away. Luckily, Stanley felt better to come back to Kelli's class today. Thank you Living Out Loud for joining Kelli on her school project.
