Summer Memories: Outdoor Party Wristband

July 28, 2012

I never thought I could be all fair’d out, but the evening of July 28th, I found myself worn. We headed to the outdoor party as Jayden calls it, sans bulky purse and DSLR. Greg and Jayden bought wrist bands… rewind… Jayden got a wrist band… which meant he was tall enough for many of the rides that he didn’t get to ride last year. I can’t handle this growing up madness.


My job during our time at the fair was to walk around looking cute and (23 weeks) pregnant. The walking took a toll on me and I found myself making frequent stops at the nearest bench. The Braxton Hicks wouldn’t let up (all is well now) and my back was so tender. Mama obviously wasn’t feeling it. I’m accepting the fact that pregnancy ain’t always glamorous, especially the second time around. I will feel down sometimes, but that’s part of being pregnant. It’ll fly by and before I know it, I’ll have another gorgeous baby who will, within a blink of an eye, be buying wrist bands with Daddy too.

    Ahhh!  Our fair is going on right now, and your fun pics make me want to pack up the kid and go (especially since tomorrow is the last day)!  But this is a rare weekend where we can stay at home and chill, so I’m going to have to pass this time a’round.  Love your cool pics!

      Thanks! Our Popcorn Fest is going on right now and we decided to stay home. I am too tired, I’d rather chill out and tidy up.
