I love getting odd frames and repainting them to have for sale in our booth, this picture is not great. It really doesn't show the bright beachy colors that I absolutely love and that they are. Sorry!!!! I helped my daughter in law paint some frames she had and then she hung them kind of frame within a frame. They look great.  These would be great done this way too.

Fair Time

We love the Sebastian County Fair. It's a good fair and the guys who run the rides are nice, the games people don't yell at you to try their games. It seems just so much better than the large fairs that I have been too. Anyway, we love going and so do the boys. You knew that was coming I bet. We went last night and oh my goodness, the boys seemed to have the best time. Noah wanted to ride everything including rides like the farris wheel. He loves the farris wheel and has ridden one at the West End Park in Fort Smith but didn't get to at the fair. Maybe next year. Jonah loved the jeeps. Both boys rode lots of rides, ate fair food, fed the goats, lamas, alpacas and more animals, saw the cows, goats, chickens, rabbits......I don't know much of anything they didn't do.

Oldest son

My oldest son has been home from Las Vegas for the weekend. We haven't seen him for a year and a half. Never thought I would ever go that long without seeing one of my kiddos. Don't like it. The last time Josh saw Jonah, Jonah was only 6 months old and now he is walking, talking, completely different kid. Of course Jonah doesn't remember Josh but Noah did. Both boys took right up with Josh. I'm so glad. Hopefully it won't be this long before Josh comes home again.

A new cook in the house

Looks like we may have a new cook in the house. His dad loves to cook so maybe it has been passed along to Jonah.

    Sweet boys

    Our sweet boys spent the night with us this weekend. I love it when they are here, we have so much fun. Last night we went to the store and Noah wanted everything that had spiderman on it or power rangers....didn't matter if he like the food or not just that it had one of those characters on it. Well, guess what???? He got most of it. He was with his Nana and Papa you know. We went swimming this morning. Those two are so much fun in the water. Amazingly, Noah was terrified of it at the first of the summer and wouldn't even get in. Now he is like a fish. Absolutely loves it. Jonah has always loved it, no fear. These boys played, ate, swam, ate, played some more and ate some more. Oh and Noah has been wanting to download new games to Papa's ipad and found one that would teach him to speak Chinese. He really wanted this one. Chinese!!!! He is three, will be four in October and he wants to learn Chinese. Such smart kids.
    No they don't have black eyes...............just dirt.
