Isaac at the Fair

Today my lovely inlaws came over at 2:00 to watch Samuel and Joseph while I took my darling little middle child, Isaac, to the opening day of our County Fair.

(I told him to give the camera a thumbs-up as we were about to embark on our date.  He said, “No, I do a thumbs down!” and giggled, giggled, giggled.)

and, strangely, went to bed tonight complaining of a stomach ache.

(he’s laughing because he just yelled, “Poo-poo head!!” to the people watching the ride…)

He also rode on 25-tickets worth of rides, and $20 worth of games to win two (rather lame…to me) prizes.  One of which was peed on later today. (don’t ask)

Basically, what I’m saying BRIAN, is that I hope you like Top Ramen!  Because I spent our weekly grocery budget already!

Also, it was as hot as an inferno.  I felt like my eyeballs might have melted right out of my skull, and I lost maybe 10 lbs of sweat.

(he got embarrassed because the attendant told him to not undo the bungee cord again.  Don’t worry, I called his name and gave that sweetie a thumbs up!)

But, you know what??

It was SO WORTH IT.

Because look at this face:

He LOOOOOVED it!

And he told me tonight at tuck-in time, “Thank you, Mama to taking me to the rides!”

Which I’m pretty sure is his way of giving me a “thumbs up” after all…

And I know how much the heat bothers you, so even more kudos for sacrificing your own comfort for the love of your boy! It was a wonderful idea to take them individually to the Fair!
