Farm Fair - Farewell

This year is/was the last year of the Farm Fair at the Lumberton Fairgrounds. That means no more crazy parties at the Hewitt house. This year they didn't have a party. Ok, they didn't really plan on having a party but all of their friends and family pretty much decided otherwise for them. There were plenty of people at their house enjoying the beautiful, albeit hot, Saturday. They were enjoying friends and family and having lots of laughs, catching up on old times and looking forward to new moments. Thanks for a great day Hewitts!

Although we were at the fair last year with SweeTart, she was hardly old enough to understand what all the fuss was about. Although she didn't go on any rides, she sure did have a great time looking at all of the animals. Her Daddy took her through the small animal tent, then to the cows, goats and sheep. Later in the day, I took her back to the horses and tried to catch a few of their competitions. She loved all of the animals, especially the horses and cows. She did get a kick at looking at some of the rabbits but she's still not quite old enough to touch the little animals yet. I managed to truck right through some horse poop with the stroller. Her Daddy was not happy about that! Oh well. That's what soap and water is for right? After all, it was the FARM fair - what did he expect?

Twinkletoes and DinoBoy had a fantabulous time enjoying the rides. They were tall enough this year for all but one or two of the rides. They enjoyed the fun house, the "free fall" type ride, the ring of fire and another round about type ride. And that was just when I was with them. When Jerry's aunt took them back to the fair to enjoy the last part of their "wristband" time, who knows what kind of fun they had!!

Mid Summer

Hi all - its the end of's almost DinoBoy's 8th birthday. How quickly that time has passed us by.

The kids are looking forward to going to the Farm Fair today. Wristbands for unlimited rides are from 1-4 p.m. Only downside of the entire thing is that it will be hot (90+) and humid. SweeTart does not like the hot and humid. I purchased a squirt bottle with a fan on it while at toys r' us yesterday. I am hopeful that will help us out, if only for a little while.

Have a mac 'n cheese in the oven to take to Hewitt's. I made cupcakes last night and Twink helped me frost them this morning. I should not be allowed to bake ... they are lopsided and look strange but we managed to hide most of their irregularites with the frosting. The Husband pointed out last night that they were no more strange looking than the cupcakes we purchased for the swimming birthday party a few weeks ago and they came from a "real" bakery in town. So - I am feeling a little bit better about them but, man, are they strange looking. With the scent that is wafting through the house right now, it smells like I did a much better job on the mac 'n cheese!

Will hopefully have pictures to post from the fair ... I will not say when since it took me six months to post before ... have a super weekend!
