A Busy Weekend

Hot, dusky wind
The air smells like barbecue and sweet corn
People are everywhere
We stare, everyone wearing everything
People yell at you like they wouldn`t elsewhere
It`s like you`re in a movie from a time that no longer exists
More kids crying and confused, then laughing freely
It`s hot
The baby wants to get down and play
Pizza, popcorn, cold beer
Animals, "that`s good eatin right there..."
One girl puked
Cheap sunglasses, leather wallets, stuffed animals too big for your truck
Bob Marley music and shirts for sale
It`s a fun time, the state fair

So, if you can guess, we went to the Arizona State Fair yesterday. We had fun. The camera battery forgot to charge itself and we only had my phone. Basically we saw cows and rode a couple of rides. Eli wanted to run around, but hates wearing his new shoes. He doesn`t know how bad it feels to run on pavement with no shoes I guess. We decided it was best not to take him to Disneyland after all (told you so babe). So, anyways.... Halloween was fun and stuff, it just doesn`t seem quite right. It`s 200 degrees outside and it`s already November. Isn`t it supposed to be cold outside by now? I totally had fun, I guess the surprisingly hot weather is still throwing me off tilt. I mean, it just seems like spring, not fall. It`s just hard to believe it`s "the holiday season", probably my Utah roots... Nothing like the changing leaves and the first snowfall... 4 seasons in all their brilliance, just the way God intended.

Speaking of what God intended, check out our Halloween costumes, LOL...
