Oremfest

Rain or shine (or pregnancy due date) we make it out to Orem Summerfest every year...six years running. I don't know why...it isn't that fun...I guess we do it for nothing else but TRADITION (you have to sing that like it is from fiddler on the roof). This year we battled some bad weather but had a great time.   It was a plus and minus having older kids now.  PLUS...they don't wander off and get lost, also no strollers.  Minus...older kids want you to spend all sorts of money, man my kids wanted me to buy them EVERYTHING.

The kids LOVED the fire trucks, ambulances, and police cars.  I could barely get them to look at the camera they were so excited.   I love Grace running by in the picture.


The kids (minus jack) in an old army car.


They had free crafts for kids to do...which was pretty awesome.  I made the kids all choose the same craft because Cali was running something back to the car (which was far) and we didn't have enough adult power for the kids to be sitting in different craft sections. 



blasted blogger...won't let me format this how I want...this next picture is of Carolina after she had cotton candy.  Obviously.  

Our kids each got to go on 4 rides, my boys thought it was awesome. If you look close enough you can see all 4 of Cali and my boys.  Those boys are really good friends.  All four wrestled today for like and hour straight.

I had to post this picture because I love robs little face. 

Oli and Rob on the Indiana Jones ride.  Carnival rides...yuck.  But man they loved it.  


We got all 6 kids on one of these berries.  It was hilarious.  The kids had that thing spinning like crazy before it even started.  We could hear them screaming the whole time.  When they got off (those rides are LONG) they were all laughing and saying "I'm about to barf" or as Rob says it "I'm bout to baaaf". 

waiting in line for a ride.  Look you can see my tummy...it's getting bigger everyday.



We HAD to take this picture.  Cali and I showed up there with almost exact matching outfits.  Plus with our EXACT matching bellies it was funny.  It is been crazy to be four days apart on our due date.  We keep having the same things happening to us.  hahaa.

Then we watched the parade.  KaeLynn and her daughters came...and also our neighbors came and sat by us.  It was pretty uneventful but I loved it.  I love just sitting around amid a big crowd like that.  PLUS yummmmm fair food.  I had a bbq pork sandwich.  We also had some delicious peach fritters yum...I wish I had one right now.  Joe had all sorts of fried goods, funnel cake, and deep fried oreos.  They were pretty dang good.  

It started raining right as we left (well we left because we knew it was going to rain).  It was a great day both of my boys were so sad it was all over.  Well...till next year.

There's nothing I love more than the local fair. Mmmmm, fair food. I think we had ours the same week. Deliberating about what to eat is always the hardest part. I ended up with a philly cheesesteak and corn fritters, though I regretted not getting the gyro later. A funnel cake is always a must.

Also super loving the tummies. I right behind you...she's starting to pop out just a little...
