Fun at the State Fair

We've had fun this weekend because Blake has been home all weekend. What a nice treat!

With Sadie's speedy arrival, I have felt a little like the boys have been cooped up for the last several days as we adjust to our sweet blessing!

Blake and I took Owen to the fair when he was about 14 months and he loved it! So, we decided to load the troops up and check it out.

The weather could not have been better. Apparently, everyone else in the state agreed and showed up as well. The boys had no clue that it was packed and they enjoyed people watching.

Blake pushed the boys while I carried Sadie in the sling.

They loved the petting zoo!

Their first funnel cake! It was a huge hit, of course!

This is a picture of us on our way to church this morning! We have so enjoyed being a family of 5! You can tell in that first pic that I either have a lazy eye or I am seriously sleep deprived!

Could Owen be anymore in love with his sister???

After church I went to check on Sadie during her nap. This is what I found. How could I not take a picture of that??? Is anyone else just dying looking at this pumpkin???

Ok, you really need to start taking notes of what you are doing so you can help me adjust to 3 kiddos! You don't look so sleep deprived to me....here's my advice of how to take care of that...plenty of Sonic Diet Cokes will give you quite a boost!

Love you bunches...

Molly and Blake,
I just wanted to let you know that I will be praying for you all and Mommy "G" tomorrow, I know it will be an oh so emotional day! Sadie is one blessed little girl to have so many people who love her...
PS- The last picture of Sadie sleeping like a princess with her bow on is just way too cute!
