I actually don't mind the milder summer weather, if we had it all year! :)

Meet our new (official very first Bignell family pet) fish: Inky-Do
She was so excited and just kept talking and talking...
"Mommy, is this the way to our date?"
"Are we on our date now?"
"I'm going to pick out a fish all by myself!"
"My fishy is going to be a girl."
"Her name is going to be Inky-Do, Mommy."
"Mommy, I loooooove you!"
"Where's my microphone?"
"I can't hear this song, I can't hear the song on the radio!"
P.S. Please don't die tonight! Thanks!

Anyway, I don't know why I always get so excited about the fair it's not like we participate in anything there or go for any specific reason (besides cheese curds of course) but it's just one of our traditions we like to do. I think we have gone every year for the past 4 years and we plan on taking the kids every year until they just won't go with us anymore! :) Things we don't pass up there include, but are not limited to, cheese curds, corn on the cob, ice cream (needless to say the healthy eating goes out the door for the day), the horribly smelly barns, the big slide and (now that the kids are older) the kiddie rides.
This is usually how we finish the day. If only we could all crawl in there! :)

Here's the handsome little ONE year old.
Friday, August 14, 2009
Don't laugh, I do realize how horrible I look here but after all I did just give birth. However, I just love this picture because it just reminds me how instantly I was so madly in love with him. I am going to go out on a limb here and hope I'm not the only one that felt like this but I was really afraid about the whole second child thing. I was scared that I couldn't or wouldn't love him as much as Alexa or that it would just be different in some way. Boy was I surprised! I was so head over heels for this little boy it was just crazy! So there you have it, the love of a mother has no end. I can only imagine if we have another that I will love that baby just as much as the first two! :)
