Labette County Fair

Better late than never, right? Well these pictures were taken at the Labette County Fair when Gage entered into the peewee bucket calf division. (He's by the girl in the orange)
 We drove over to watch some of his little friends show their calves and he ended up showing one also. He got to choose which color and he chose the purple ribbon since purple means your the winner won the purple ribbon!
 In the peewee division you get to borrow a friends calf and have them help you in the arena while showing the calf.
This is Shanler helping Gage. See him, yea the tiny kid on the other side of the calf. You can see the very top of his head and his legs. Their bucket calf wasn't so little!
Sorry I was too busy helping him get into the arena and didn't have time to use my camera so a friend emailed them to me the other day.

Gage and I got up early Saturday morning and headed out to Neewollah. We were sitting in our chairs at 9 a.m.
Every year it is a race to get the best seats. It's also a race I haven't won yet. We have yet to have the perfect seat. We waited patiently and made some new friends that travel from Arkansas every year to watch the parade.
The parade started on time at 11 a.m. As always, starting with the colors and loud sirens.
The fire dog actually did a pretty good little performance right in front of us finishing up with ringing the bell before he sat back down on the front bumper to continue riding in the parade.
Gage is always waving at people. He is the most sociable kid person I know. I'm not sure where he gets it. During the parade he told me his arm hurt from waving. I told him he didn't have to wave since he didn't know any of them. He said "But their nice people and their waving at me so I have to wave back mom."

Below is my youngest sister Quin. She is in the band but chose to do the flag core the day of the parade for the Sedan High School.
Gage and I had a great day. The parade lasted 2 hours though!

Not What I Had Planned

This is definitely not what I had planned to do today.
 I had a desk of work. I had a four day work week this week.
He had a four day school week. He had swimming lessons tonight.
Instead, he has an ear infection. He's We've been up since 11:30 p.m. last night. Currently he has a fever. One that didn't appear until after we returned home from the doctors office for a couple hours.
 He will miss swimming lessons tonight. He does have Scooby Doo on the DVR and an ice pack though. That would be equivalent to me and my Pepsi.
 I sure hope he gets better soon or he will miss his first kindergarten field trip to the pumpkin patch that is happening in 2 days!

September Camping

 This post is late coming but better late than never, right? We went camping in September and had a great weekend with friends and our little family.
 We went on nature walks, roasted marshmallow's
 went on scooter rides
 stroller rides

 had Popsicle treats
had dirty kids
 took our kids swimming to clean off for fun
 And ate very well.
All in all, had a great time and can't wait to do it again. That is if you ask Gage and I.
My husband may tell you don't ask him.
