There was a scuba diving booth in Eagle this year. Seth and Lyra were dying to try it out! They had so much fun! Pyper was so sad that she wasn't old enough to try...maybe in a few years! I think the funniest part was trying to watch them walk in the fins after they got into the pool. There was also a cool underwater camera, but none of the pictures I took worked out, dang!

Guess who lost tooth #4?

Man I think that toothless smile is cute!

What we do after the fair...

While everything is getting torn down, Buggy, Pyper and I have to amuse ourselves. ( I honestly don't know where Seth was, but I think he was watching TV!) We decided to enjoy the sunshine and test out Pyper's birthday presents from Aunt Ree and Uncle Buzz. I got a HUGE laugh out of watching Pyper jump rope! Buggy is a fairly decent jump roper and can even do a few tricks! I took some pictures and a few videos of them.

Pyper would kick her leg out really far to get the skip it thing to spin. Mostly it just tripped her on it's way around!

Buggy was pretty good at it!

Hannah even tried it. (Don't tell, she was supposed to be working!)

And just to give an idea of how greasy she really was...

Don't worry, she came clean and is back to her normal girly self!

And so you can laugh too, here is a video of them jump roping and playing with the Skip It (I put them all together into one video).

Petting Zoo

On our way to Colorado, we stopped in Scipio to get fuel and stretch our legs a bit. Just across the street from the gas station was a big sign that said PETTING ZOO. We strolled over to check it out. We were very bummed to find it closed! But there was a girl there feeding all the animals who let my kids help her feed the lambs. They were so cute, and my kids had a blast!

So, if you are ever down that way, make sure to stop...just not on a Monday or Tuesday! And a big thanks to the nice lady for making my kiddos happy even though they didn't get to see all the animals!

Climbing kids

This weekend there was a rock wall at the fair. This is a novelty for my kids, since we only see a few each year. The great thing about being a carnival owners' kid is that many times we are able to "trade", my kids get to ride the rock wall or the like, while the other person's kids get to ride the carnival, for super cheap or even free. This weekend they got to climb and climb and climb! And they had a ton of fun!
Seth was a maniac! He climbed "the hard side"

Bug climbed about 50 times I think!

And Pyper FINALLY made it clear to the top! She was proud.
