Arizona State Fair!

Wow, we had such a fun day today. We woke up - both worked out. I went to a cardio dance class, and Speen played tennis with a friend. Next, we went to Costco for lunch! (I know - who goes to the fair and doesn't buy any food!?!) Next we went to the state fair, and the best part about it, was it only cost $1!!! To put it shortly - we had a BLAST at the fair!

We barely made it home in time to feed Lance and take him to his babysitters. How cool is this - Thunderbird tends all the kiddos once a month so the parents can have a date night. We had so much fun playing bacci ball at the park and having dinner with our friends.

With all the stresses in the world today, it is nice to - as President Monson said "find JOY in the journey!" I love my little family so much!

How cute is your family! I'm so bummed that we missed out on the $1 fair day! We were just waiting till it cooled down a bit more before we went. Hopefully we'll catch another discount day. Have a great weekend, and we'll see you around:-)

Fun pictures. I love the cowboy hats! We went to the fair here last month and had a blast. It's so fun with kids, and I have to say, one of the best places to people watch.

That is so cool that they baby sit for all the parents. I tell my sisters all the time how important it is to have date night.

What a great fair too! I love people watching at the fairs. :)
