About Me

My photo
Our family consists of Paul/Daddy. He loves his little girls, wife and family more than anything in the world. Velvet (aka MaMa Velvet or Mommy). I'm a photographer and very happy stay at home Mom who can't get enough time with my little ones! Lily (aka Monster or Princess). She's our 12 year old smart, talkative, beautiful young woman who is impressing us everyday! Addison (aka Doo or Addi). She's 9, artistic, sensitive, lovely young lady who has a quick sense of humor! Scarlett or Bo for short! She's 7, sassy, outgoing, cute as a button and has a passion for a few very select food groups! Finally we have our littlest princess, who has blessed us with her presence until it's time to go home. She's 1 and the happiest little baby around! She loves clapping, snuggling, shaking her head no, and laughing at her sisters! She's incredibly smart and uses sign language to communicate most of her needs until she learns to use her big girl words. We are loving on her with every ounce of our being!

Yesterday we had the pleasure of taking Lily to the Festival and Carnival in my hometown!

Our week vacation happened to encompass the weekend of the festival and Lily's mother was nice enough to give Paul the all day passes she had for all the carnival rides.  Lily really enjoyed the whole day and got to ride as many rides as she wanted!

We also happened to run into her friend Isabelle and her parents.  So the girls ran around and had a blast!

They rode airplanes together...

while Addison sat around in the shade with the obnoxious huge pink dolphin Lily had won.

Lily wanted to go on the rollercoaster so Isabelle stood in the shade with us and let her Dad mess with her stuffed animals.

Once Lily was done with the rollercoaster she asked to play the ducky game close by.

You pick a duck from the pool and based on the color on the ducks butt you get a prize.

She said she picked the biggest duck.

Isabelle picked the turtle sized duck butt.

Lily picked the monkey butt.  Go figure :)

The girls REALLY loved the maze at the carnival!  It consisted of mirrors and glass panels that you had to wind your way through.

I loved the maze as well.

It was hillarious to watch the girls run headfirst into the glass. Over and over and over again.

Once they were done running into glass plates they moved on to the "Crazy Bus".

Forgive me for saying this, but the "Crazy Bus" was more "Bus" and less "Crazy".

I'm assuming it was supposed to mimmick the much larger ride that launches you into the air and then plummets you to the ground.

The "Crazy Bus" was more like a leisurely sunday drive.

Isabelle had to leave after that so the girls hugged and demanded that I take a photo.


This is Lily's first time on one of the big kid rides!

The thing moved so fast and in so many different directions that I was only able to get this picture of her actually RIDING the ride.

She said she loved it, Daddy said he felt nauscious :)

We headed to the festival for dinner and snowcones and Lily jacked Addison's stroller.

She's so sneaky sometimes.

I don't think Addison minded though, she'd been in the stroller all day anyway.

Grandpa met up with us for dinner too!

He loves any opportunity to play with the grandbabies... that and Nachos.

After dinner we all headed back to the carnival to let Lily run off some of the sugar.

This is how Addison and I spent our day.

Hanging out, watching a bunch of people scream, finding any patch of shade available.

Addison and I headed back to the car after a while to cool it down and enjoy the air conditioning.

I took this photo that reminded me I'd taken a photo semi similar about one year ago...

Only she was much smaller, demanding, hungry and hairless :)

Anyway, we had a great day thanks to many people!

Hope everyone else had a wonderful weekend as well.
