4H Fair

We went to the 4H Fair today. Lauren was dancing today along with many others from her dance studio. She did tap & hip hop. She did great as always. It was a nice day for it, not to hot. They had some games for the kids to play, food, animals, bouncy house, etc. Laci & Braedon went right to the games first! They were cute. Then Laci saw the bunnies & that was it! She's now begging for one. There must have been about 25 of them there. All different colors, sizes & breeds. There were 4 black & white babies that were 2 months old that she pretty much stayed with. Carrying them like babies. She loves animals, maybe she'll end up being a vet when she's older. Here's some of the hip hop dance, my camera died so I wasn't able to get some of her tap.

Halloween in August

This weekend at my mom's camper it was Halloween in August. They have activities all weekend & trick or treat for all the kids. The kids love it because that's twice a year they get to go trick or treating. Lauren & my mom got back from Maine yesterday so they met us up there. The kids went for a quick swim before dinner then it was time to get ready. Lauren dressed up as a Stop sign, pretty creative huh! She had everyone cracking up & she won for most creative costume! Laci dressed up as a zombie bride, Braedon dressed as Thomas the Train & Rylan was a dalmation. He wasn't in a very good mood though so I didn't get any pics of him. After trick or treat there is a costume contest for most original, cutest, scariest, prettiest & best costume. Like I said earlier Lauren won for most original & my niece Isabella won cutest. They also have a haunted house so once it gets dark it opens up for all the kids to go through.Isabella the butterfly.The contest winners!The whole group minus Rylan.The haunted house.
