The Dogwood Festival


Last night we headed over to the local "Dogwood Festival" in our little town. It is basically a carnival and a parade and a lot of fun! The kids had more fun on the little playground nearby than on the rides! We met our great friends Cali and Rick for the festival. This was literally the first nice day we have had all week, so that made it even more fun! I don't know if it was the lighting or the cute kids, but I think I got some of my favorite pictures of all time last night. I loved the picture above of little Amalie. She was watching the roller coaster behind me, in complete fascination.


This is one of my favorite pictures I have ever taken of Bradley. I don't know why, but right now he just JUMPS around the house. He says over and over again, "I'm JUMPING Mommy." This is repeated probably 50+ times a day. At first these little jumps were more like hops, but now he gets both feet off of the ground at the same time. Last night he figured out how to jump off the edge of the playground, and was so proud of himself.


Does it get any cuter than this?


I love this picture of Larken, she just looks so cute!



On the Merry Go Round!

Of course he had to ride the motorcycle!


The duck game, pay $5 and get three pieces of junk, I mean great toys! Bradley was happy!

Oh my gosh, those are great pictures of the children having lots of fun at the fair!
Bradley can certainly hop ~ wish i had half of his energy!

Those little girls are beautiful ~ i love their names too.

Thanks for your e-mail with all the info. I will look into it tonight when the kids are in bed and i have some peace and quiet to play around with it!
