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!

State Fair: Part 2- The Amazingly Hot and Sweaty Rides

So a couple of weeks ago our family had the opportunity to spend some time at the Oregon State Fair.

As many of you know it's located in Salem, which is about an hour away on good traffic days.

Needless to say we were in the car for about an hour and a half.

Addison ended up getting a decent nap which was awesome because we were planning on a grumpy 1 year old.

First picture post nap... still in the car...

When we finally got to the destination we jumped out of the car with Grandma and Grandpa and ran into (not literally) a huge horse.

The owners were extra nice and let Lily pet the huge animal.

Once inside we took a pit stop to add copious amounts of sunblock to the ankle biters.

They don't like toasty skin.

Go figure.

Addison spent most of the day trying to escape her stroller.

She's still too tiny to ride most of the rides at the Fair.

My poor, overly large baby.

Next year you'll be big enough sweetie, Mommy promises!

Hey... how you doin?

Sorry about that... I can't control myself sometimes.

Anyway, Lily rode LOTS of rides, including but not limited to the motorcycle ride...

The jumbo swings...

and the helicopter ride.

I'd have photos of her on the haunted house but she spent the entirety of her ride with her head buried in my lap.

I warned her.

Addison on the other hand spent her free time perfecting her "baby suave" look...

Good right?

We're in trouble for her teen years.
