Fair time is one of our favorite times and we look forward to it all year long! Ella has competed in the tractor pull competition the last three years and Micah got to compete in it for the first time this year! The kids did great but neither of them did a "full pull." Micah was so upset he didn't get a trophy and we tried to explain to him that the trophy was for the kid who pulled the small tractor all the way up the ramp. We said "Look Micah, you got this cool ribbon!" Paul then started to read it to him "It says...." Micah cut him off and with a pouty face said "It says, Micah didn't win!" We were trying so hard not to laugh but it was too funny! So in the first competition he has ever been in he had to learn the tough lesson that you don't always win, sometimes you get a participation ribbon ;)

Here is that last three years Ella has done the tractor pull, it's fun to see how much she's grown!

One more post for today! ;) I have been wanting to get a pic of Rilynn in her super cute bathing suit before it gets too cold. This is hands down the cutest swim suit in the world! I'm going to be very sad when I have to pack it away :( I'm going to try and get a better pic that isn't blurry later this week but this picture was still super cute.
Wow, I really failed on keeping up the blog this summer! I can't believe it's been so long! We had a very exciting fun filled summer and I'm going to try my best to update all about it. They always say to start with the most recent and work your way back when you fall behind on scrapbooks so that's what I'm going to do with my blog :) Summer literally flew by us and it's now really starting to feel like fall. I'm already missing the warm weather but I'm excited about all the fun things we have in store for the rest of the year. I do love fall time in Ohio even if it means that winter is coming and the sun is disappearing :( We went apple picking last week with the kids to help us get in the mood for fall. Fresh picked apples are absolutely delicious and I'm very excited to can some applesauce to enjoy all year!
