State Fair Fun

As usual...we attended the State Fair...and stayed for the entire day (13 hours!)...and loved every minute of it! Here are a few pictures from our fun filled day.

Israel seemed to enjoy the petting zoo...although he never smiled...the lama kept trying to suck on his arm!

The HUGE mammoth ear!

Rachel and Jaxon were both big enough to go on EVERY ride at the fair! Wow...when did they get so big?!

My sweet niece Callie always gives Auntie Becca lots of loves!

Even Uncle Kevin enjoyed the carousel!

Cousins...Israel and Hailey...pretty sure they will be best friends!

Rachel, Jaxon & Callie enjoying rides together.

Jaxon on the canoe ride.

LOVE this action shot of the kids on the swings!

***Eye Candy***

For Israel's 18 month old pictures I stepped out of the box a bit, and instead of doing the normal JC Penny's route I always do...I decided to let Angela with Tekoa Rose Photography do an outdoor shoot for us. IT WAS AMAZING! She did a fantastic job and I haven't even seen all of the pictures yet! She did however send me these teasers that I just had to share with you all!

18 Months Old

Hey Israel...You are 18 months old!
What have you been up to lately?

How can you already be 1 1/2? It really feels like just yesterday you were a tiny baby! In fact...I still call you my baby, and maybe I should start saying my toddler...but it's just to hard!
*You have changed a lot lately, with the biggest change being movement! You roll around everywhere with full intention of where you are going and what you are doing!
*You are busy and FULL of energy!
*You eat everything...finally! You are always willing to try something once, but not always twice.

*You are wearing size 12 & 18 month clothes.
*You now weight 18 pounds (You have lost a pound in the past 10 months...the doctors are worried...but that's a whole other blog post!)
*You are VERY smart! You love figuring things out and doing "task oriented" things.
*You LOVE my iPhone and have figured out how to do a lot on it already!

*You love attention and know how to get it!
*You are a very big flirt and know how to give the perfect look.
*Speaking of looks, you also know how to give a pretty nasty look too!

*You can say some words and phrases and knows a few signs too. But you gabber a lot!
*You have a mouth FULL of teeth! 12 to be exact!
*You are an amazing baby, with such a great personality. You shine! You delight us everyday! You make our hearts smile.
