Lydia's Birthday

My youngest sister Lydia turned seventeen on the 14th of this month. She is still a little girl to me, and I guess she always will be! We celebrated her birthday a couple of weeks ago:
                              Lydia with our proud parents :)
                                         Lydia & me.
          Jesse (little bro), Lydia, Isaac, Kimberly.
                                    Lydia & the twins.
    Sisters! Melissa, Lydia, Kimberly.  We were missing you Jessica!!

I know this is a little late, but: HAPPY BIRTHDAY LYDIA! Blessings to you this year and every year! I love you!

First Fair

This weekend we drove the short distance to Mississippi and took the twins to the "Ultimate Fair". (not what I named it - just what the sign said!)

They were so so so excited. This was their first time to attend a fair, ride rides, eat cotton candy...

First ferris wheel ride - I went with them! They were very impressed with the view.
*First cotton candy!
 Funny boy :-)
Such a lady.
They met some new friends! Twin boys who are almost six. They just happened to all get on the same ride.
This was their favorite ride - The Dragon!


* I just realized (while looking through old posts), that the twins have had cotton candy before at a fall festival when they were three! They were just too young to remember. So I guess this was their first time to have cotton candy and remember they had it. Which doesn't really matter because cotton candy isn't terribly important. I'm only mentioning it because I feel like a big fat liar. Ha!
