|Patiently waiting their turn, and picking out their ponies.|
|Not only did Ruby not cry this time, I heard a couple of yee-haws from both kids.|
|I know he doesn't look too excited, but there is a scarecrow on a Curious George episode |
So Luke actually asked me to take his picture.
Earlier in the week Taylor's car had met an untimely end so he had been pretty stranded. He and Tim did lots of looking, weeded out the lemons and Taylor is the proud owner of a new car. Freedom!
Saturday Tim got up super early and headed out to run the Mt. Nebo Half Marathon. I'm the one that got him into these crazy races and I love/hate that he signed up and ran without me. He told me that he would run it for me since I was the one that really wanted to race. He hasn't had a chance to train much and I'm always amazed at what a natural he is. He finished with smiles for all and hugs for the babies.
Jarin ran the full marathon. He also finished like a total champ. He has been so dedicated with his training and put in the work for a great race. He also had plenty of energy for high fives and waves.
|Showing off their bling!|
|When we asked Luke his favorite part of the parade, with no hesitation, he said the dinosaur float.|
|At least Tim and /i will look at the camera.|
|Cousins - and which one looks like she should be Ruby's mama???|
|I loved this one of my dad and my Uncle Kim.|
|Juniper wanted to sit on Luke's chair, I'm not sure she was as excited to sit on his lap.|
|Hmmmm, this one was a little tricky.|
|Lunch in the park.|
And then it was off to the carnival. My kids have never really been to a carnival so they had no idea the fun they were missing. I was surprised when Luke said he wanted to go on the Ferris wheel. I'm sure it helped that by going, it meant that he got to be a part of the big boys. Thanks guys for showing him the way. Oh, and it turns out that taking pictures of your kids on carnival rides is not as easy as it looks. We are just happy to have some shots to document the memories.
|The fun is clearly just beginning.|
|They were told to "hold on tight"|
|High fives from everyone.|
|This ride started off with all smiles...|
|Approximately 5 seconds after it started Ruby started to cry with a look of pure terror,|
They had to stop the ride to let her off. Poor baby.
|Luke loved it so much, he went a second time.|
