Family Visits and the Preble County Fair!

We had a super fun weekend.

I can tell when we over do things though, because the boys get super fussy. Despite all of that though, we did have a great time!

My husbands dad came up from Kentucky to visit and have a cookout. It was nice to see him, the boys have missed him too!

My Hubby is in the blue shirt, Zieke is in his lap. Next to him is my nephew with LJ in his lap. My Father-In-Law in sitting down with Baby A in his lap. Behind him is my Brother-In-Law and right next to Baby A is my other Nephew. The two kids beside my Nephew are my Nephews as well and then my other Brother-In-Law beside them! Sshheeww.. Lots of boys in the family! lol

My Niece snuck in for this picture!

Oh gee Baby A and his love for toy guns… (Covers face and shakes head)..

IMG_4432

Some of played basketball.. others sat and drank pop! lol…me included! Ha!IMG_4435

My Nephew likes to tease my Hubby lol!

IMG_4439

The kids were all playing this with farting Minions toy! Bahaha.. Boys!

IMG_4442

My Hubby is pretty good at Basketball.. but he was an All Star at Soccer in his high school years 🙂

And then the next day we wen to the fair! We had went to church that morning so I just kept their church clothes on! Probably wasnt the best idea lol

IMG_4455

Baby A was taken with all the animals.. they actually all were 🙂

IMG_4458

Baby is quite taken with my Niece, she watches him a few times a week so we can film for YouTube. I’d say he acted way better than normal because she was with us.

IMG_4463

There were SO MANY HORSES!

IMG_4465

Ah.. and this .. poop… the boys’ favorite word… so yes.. we took a picture lol

IMG_4467

Ah my lil man!

IMG_4469

Baby A didn’t know quite what to think!

IMG_4470

This was cool! A place to bathe the horses! I do not know anything about horses.. so maybe this isn’t anything special lol but I thought it was cool.

IMG_4473

They were doing all kinds of showings at this fair!

IMG_4476

Miniature horses! Just their size!

IMG_4481

This reminded me of the Racing Stripes movie! The boys said Skye needed one like this! Ha.

IMG_4484

Isn’t this super cute!

IMG_4485

They had all kinds of chickens! Some I have never heard of or seen before!

IMG_4488

My nephew is so sweet. He’s so good with the boys.

IMG_4490

IMG_4491

This one was sleeping and it had an egg laying right next to her!

IMG_4493

Ah! Look at this one!! SCARY lol

IMG_4496

Aww this booth was cool. They had someone telling the kids about salvation.

IMG_4501

They gave out free balloons..

IMG_4502

AND did free face painting!

IMG_4503

Ok.. so the rides… so looked quite scary!..

IMG_4505

and others.. not so much! ha!

IMG_4506

Aww my Niece is so good with them too. even when the boys are not so good! (we are working on that with the boys…#momlife)

See.. nice and slow 😉

IMG_4512

I think they were looking at another ride here.. looks like it was high in the sky according to their faces!

IMG_4515

So all rides required tickets, except this one, for some reason they didn’t take them? Which was WONDERFUL because tickets were $18 for 20 and most rides were 3-4 each per person. That’s outrageous to me, BUT the boys got in for free so I guess it’s a win win!

I think he liked it! I’m so glad my Niece went down with him. Anymore, I get a super sick feeling just from swinging.. I know.. I know.. I’m getting old!

IMG_4519

My nephew was to tall for this, so he coached the my older two boys through it 😉

IMG_4522

See, they are looking down for guidance lol

IMG_4525

The games were fun, but also super expensive! Gee when did fair cost and arm and a leg to go! ha! They all ended up winning something though! That was so good, because there would have been meltdowns!

IMG_4526

My Nephew did a game by himself. He such a sweet little guy!

 

 

IMG_4529

Look..is that horse cart racing?? What is this called??

IMG_4530

Then there was food.. and some melt downs! Ugh.. my boys are the worse. They fuss so much! Maybe it’s because they are so close in age?

IMG_4531

Aaron wasn’t too happy here.. he wanted a cheeseburger too!

IMG_4532

LJ smiled right after this! Ha, I think he was focused on something here.

IMG_4537

We ended the trip (and the end of our cash) with these awesome snow cones!

IMG_4538

You put on your own flavors! Zieke got watermelon on accident so we had to scrap it off and put on cherry.. then LJ cried because he wanted to do the same. (He does everything Zieke does, almost everything lol)

IMG_4541

Ah.. peace.. for a few brief moments! We took my Niece and Nephew to church and then drove back home. They boys rested for just a little bit, enough to become wild once we got back home! Ha!

Anyways, we had a super fun weekend with family then the fair. Today we are taking it easy as we have another busy week/weekend ahead of us!
