The Fair!

We just spent a super fun weekend in Charlotte!  My mom reminded me I haven't been blogging as much so I better get on it!

A few weeks ago when we were home we got to go to Denver Days, a local fair.  We've tried to go for the last several years but it's been rained out.

After we ate dinner, Ellie and Gracie decided they want to ride this thing, it's like the drop zone

We told them we were not riding it with them and they were ok with that.

Up they went....

And boy I sure wish you could have seen their faces when they came back down.  Ellie was crying and Gracie had a look of horror on her face.  It was sooooooo funny.

They were quickly over it and we were on to the next thing.

La la with Pipey on the carousel...

And nothing says fair more than a candy apple!

Apple Pickin!

We were so sad to miss apple picking this year, but we ended up coming home for something else and getting to go!
It's always a highlight.

The gang

UP the mountain we go

Reese was pretty stoked to walk this year:)

The girls worked hard to get the wagon up

Stinker 1 and stinker 2

mmmmm, look at them all!
 Reese quickly decided riding was wise

We had a harder time picking this year.  It was slim pickins

Ms. Balts got the high ones for us

Piper helping Connor

Zander needed a little help getting his loot to the wagon

Success!  These were the best tasting apples I've ever had!  Seriously!

Nothing says apple pickin like an apple slushy!

Piper:: Gymnastics

I promise I haven't tried to neglect the blog lately, blogger hasn't liked me too much.  It doesn't always let me post.

Here is round 2 of extreme cuteness....Pipey's Gymnastics Class

We sit upstairs and overlook the floor through this chain link fence.  Bear with me, the first half are from my cell cause forgot my camera the first day.

This is warm-ups. And these girls get a workout!

Perfecting their splits

The bridge.  I can still do one:)  Piper makes me try.

She's pretty good!

Look at that cartwheel action

You can't really tell in this one but they are swinging into the pit

Girlfriend can do an awesome split. Both ways.  Whoa.

She loves it!  We love that she loves it!
