Jill's Baptism

This past weekend, we made the trip to Paulding county for Jillian's Baptism. On Saturday, we just chilled at mom and dad's house and Lexi even helped Gra-Nola pick some flowers. G.G. Eileen and Papa Bud came over for a few hours and some of the adults hit up the Flat Rock Creek Festival (during the football games). Then on Sunday, we all ventured to Columbus Grove for church and the baptism. Jill was a very good baby during the service. After church, we all enjoyed lunch at the Red Pig in Ottawa - YUM! I guess we tuckered out both of our girls! Thanks to all who were there and congrats to Godparents Brittany and Matt.

Wayne County Fair!

On Monday of this week Lexi, Jill, and I joined my friend Amy and her 3 kids at the Wayne County Fair in Wooster, Ohio. It was a HOT day, but we managed to enjoy ourselves anyway! We ended up buying Lexi a ride wrist-band and Amy's youngest son - Adam - was nice enough to ride all the rides with her. She loved it and didn't want to stop. She even rode some rides all by herself and 2 of the rides twice! Jill was very good and enjoys being in her stroller. After eating some pretzel dippers (from the Auntie Annie's booth) and a pulled pork sandwich, we were full and tired and ready to come home for a nap. Thanks to Amy and especially to Adam for riding all the rides with Lexi.

Go Smithies!

We made it to a Smithie Football Game again this year. The goal is to go to at least one game each year and cheer-on Papa Chuck's team. Once again, Lexi made it through the entire game and got to see Papa Chuck afterwards. Jill was even a trooper and managed to sleep through the 2nd and 3rd quarters just in time to wake up for the 4th quarter! As you may or may not remember, the shirt Jill is wearing is the same shirt Lexi has worn for the last 2 years. Lexi's shirt is new. Thanks to G.G. Eileen for making the shirts for the girls. We got many compliments on them! Enjoy the pictures.

Van Wert Fair!

Over Labor Day weekend, I took both girls and headed to mom and dad's house. After putting up the swings and the girls swinging in the front yard and then walking to the Haviland Park on Saturday, of course we just had to hit the Van Wert County Fair - the best fair in the state! So, on Sunday evening, my whole family went and met 2 of my high school friends Michelle (Kipfer) and her new husband Robert and Kim (Mabis) and her daughter Rylee. The kids enjoyed themselves and we all ate like piggies. Fair food is soooo good (and so bad for you). Along with petting the cow, the girls even got to ride on the carousel (Kaity's first time)! Enjoy the pictures!
