Video Catch-up

Averi Kate cracks herself up.

Singing as always...

 She normally says that the moon goes "Pop!"

Subtitles for Claire's song are underneath the video if you need them...

If you're happy and you know it...
Smell mommy (hysterical laughter)
Wiggle your moon (hysterical laughter)
Jump on the trampoline with your knee on the trampoline and jumping up (hysterical laughter)

AK has this thing about touching everything with her feet. Like, she has to touch everything with her feet.

"Do the pant(ies) go on your head???"

A conversation with AK.

And finally, some dances from the fair.

Just a Moment

There is a moment, right after you mop the kitchen, that your floor is actually clean. Then your child runs through the room with shaving cream and cornstarch dripping off her hands, telling you excitedly about the "snowman" she just made in the dining room, and that moment is gone. But it's okay because your kids are awesome.

 Well, we had our first family camping experience. And it's safe to say, we are all still alive and happy! We had a great time, thanks to some sweet friends in Ellaville who let us use their land and lake, and our "favorite grownup", Bray (Amber) and "oh buddy" (Roosevelt).  I didn't get too many pictures, but here are a few from the first day!

She caught one! Reeling it in...

Here is Amber listening to Claire describe her fishing success!

"The fish."

Claire wasn't very excited.

Back in the game.

AK chasing Roosevelt, yelling "Oh buddy! Oh buddy!"

"I'm about to catch him..."

"Oh wait, there he is!"

Oh our sweet Bray. The best camping buddy ever, and Claire's favorite grownup.

Coach getting the fire started.

AK watching...

Claire was a big helper!

Oh, the Fair!

Oh, the fair. The most wonderful time of the year. We went twice this year and the girls had a blast.

Here the girls joined in with some live music from a little streetside band...

Rest stop with Dobby!

AK was not too sure about getting on this fake horse.


Another rest stop with Dobby :)

Everyone enjoyed the rides!

Averi "No Fear" Kate...

Cowgirl Claire...

There were all kinds of animals to see!

The second time we went, there was another band that we got to play with!

This picture right here pretty much sums up my life.

Coach listening to the very sad UGA game.

Claire got all dressed up to dance at the fair!

 (a little mid-performance yawn...)

Yay fair! We'll see you next year!
