Fair Rats Are We

Started off fair week at the Parade on Saturday morning. The kids particularly hyper that day.

The whole crew

We hit the fair on Monday and watched the Indian Races, ate (of course), and after Quincy fell asleep Chan took her home and I took the older girls to see the animals.

Halle plugged her nose the ENTIRE time we were looking at the animals.
Wednesday we hit the rides!

It was a great week, but I'm never really sad to see the madness go so we can get back to real life. 11 months left!

Do the Smartie Pants Dance

Halle also had her first day of Smartie Pants Preschool! She loves it, if you ask her what grade she is she says "Smartie Pants." I know this is a lot of pictures, but she is such a funny poser that I couldn't leave any out! Now it's just Quincy and me for 4 hours a week, which I thought would be heavenly but not so much. Quincy screams EVERY time Halle leaves for preschool and the whole time she's gone she just follows me around asking "Where's Halle?"

1st Grade, Here She Comes!

McKinley's first day of First Grade came and went. She was very excited, the second I went to wake her up for school, she popped out of bed with a huge smile on her face like it was Christmas. She has Mrs. Stocking this year and has a lot of her great friends in her class. First grade was a little harder for me than Kindergarten. She's gone all day and with all those big kids but she's been doing great!

Quincy Lou is 2!

Quincy's Birthday was the Saturday before school started so we had fun celebrating and having one last hurrah! We took the girls to the zoo again, so Chan could go with us and then we had a picnic lunch and went to swim at the Shelley Pool so the kids could show him all they learned at swimming. We love our little Quincy, she certainly brings a lot of excitement to our lives!

I told the girls to act like they had just hatched from the egg. This is what I got.

Happy Birthday Quincy, we love you!

McKinley is 6!

On July 30th (Yes I realize I'm very behind) my first born turned 6! It was a fun filled day, we took Marin and Saddie to the movies and went out to eat and had a great time with the 3 little divas!

That evening we had planned to go with our families to Ross Park to let the kids swim and have some pizza and cake but our plans were ruined by lightning storms which caused Ross to close but we already had all our families on the way, so we got a room at the Red Lion in Pocatello so we could use their pool and had the party there! We had a great time and thanks to our family who came and made the night special. McKinley is such a great girl with a happy personality and adds so much to our family. We are so proud of her!

McKinley lost her FIRST TOOTH!

McKinley lost her first tooth this summer! It was getting pretty wiggly but she kept turning down her dad's offers to rip it out with pliers or do the old string, slam door technique. Eventually it came out and she told me she wondered if she would get the rich tooth fairy or the poor tooth fairy (got that idea from Hailey). She told us that she thinks she got the rich one because she got two dollars under her pillow, what a lucky girl. I told her you get a bonus for the first one and then it goes down a little after that.....

Cheer Camp

It's that time of year again, and this year both McKinley and Halle went to the Aberdeen Kiddie Camp with their Aunt Whitney. All three of them make pretty cute cheerleaders!

Tautphaus Park Zoo

So a while ago we had our carpets cleaned so the girls and I needed to get out of the house for a few hours, so we hit up the zoo and met Chan for lunch. We had a great time, the girls loved it and I was impressed how many animals they had in an Idaho Falls zoo.
