A Day At The Fair

I'm constantly reminded of how grown up Avery is getting. Last night we went to the fair, and since the recent cold front made things a little chilly, I had to pull out some of her Fall clothes. Once I put on her little jeans and long sleeved shirt, I teared up because she looked like a little girl instead of a toddler.

Last Tuesday we tried to go to the fair during the day since Kenny was out of school, but once we got there we saw the rides did not start until 3, so we had to drive away without experiencing the fun. Avery thought she had done something wrong and cried and cried as if to say, "I won't do whatever I did wrong again, as long as we can go to the fair!" We ended up going to the mall to ride the carousel and to McDonald's to play on the playground.

But I digress.

Last night we enjoyed the Fair. Rides, shows, animals and all. I am normally the one in the family that does the riding with Avery, but since I'm out of commission, Kenny took over that role. I think they had fun bonding each time they waited in line or rode a ride together. I thoroughly enjoyed watching them together.

I have tons of sweet stories, but I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. I've included some from last year, side by side with some similar shots from this year. (Looks like Avery isn't the only one that did some growing!)

She has grown so much! It's hard to believe! I miss not getting to see her grow in front of my eyes now that ya'll are gone. :( She does look like such a big girl. I put my kids in some fall clothes tonight (jeans, long sleeve shirts, and coats) to go to a football game and they looked big to me. You do look great, Jamey! You are so cute pregnant. :)

Kenny, you look good.
Was the "Avery's not the only one that grown" comment just for pregnant mom or a shot at you as well?

Looks like great family fun at the fair.

You guys look great! I know the feeling of seeing your little girl "grown up." Just wait until you have the baby and how grown up Avery will seem. So excited for you!

Looks like so much fun! I have been thinking about wanting to go to the fair--I have such fond childhood memories of it! Glad you were able to make those memories with your family!

Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers as your "time" rapidly approaches!! :)
