Preston FINALLY got his first day of school!

Preston was supposed to start school last Monday....but then they let school out early due to the heat.
So, I had one sad little boy when his first day of school was cancelled!
 
We had our pictures all done and everything!
 
 
 
He was very excited he FINALLY got to wear his new shoes!



 
Peighton was very excited for his first day.
She has been telling him all about school for weeks now.




 
He is just so darn cute.
 
 
 
 
 
After the first day was a bust we tried again the next day!

 
 



 
When he gets there each day he has to find his bucket and do the activity inside it while everyone arrives.
He's always excited on the drive to school to find out what his bucket will hold!

 
The first day was one of our favorites: Play-doh and knives!
 
He is LOVING school and playing with is new buddies each day.

A few more of the fair and the one and only Adventureland!

We took a one day break from the fair and went to Adventureland!
 

 
Always a cheese.
They loved the carousel.

 
The teacups!



 
Semi's are always a hit.
I lost count of how many times we rode them!

 
Preston was the only one who wanted lassoed!

 
Finally having fun on the boats!

 
Lots of giggling.



 
Preston took Mike on the bumper cars.
I think they both liked it.

 
 Grandma Sue got stuck with Peighton and her awesome driving skills!



 
Tea cups... Again.

 
The next day Grandma Sue did the fair with us.
 








 
Everyone was sitting...because they were eating...so we got a quick picture!

 
Giant slide professional.

 
Bubba did it again!
And still liked it!

 
And Hayden still hated it. ;-)

 
We milked a cow!


 
Grandpa does not enjoy the 4-H exhibits...so he found a bench to wait for us.

 
The kids had wanted to ride The 'Ol Mill all week so we did it with Grandma and Grandpa.
We thought the boat was going to tip over when ALL the adults sat on the same side of the boat!
With some quick rearranging we made it through!

More Iowa State Fair fun!

The boys joined us for the weekend and we had lots more fun.
 
 
 
Who doesn't need a family picture on the giant beer chair!!!!!

 
The baby dairy calves are always a hit.
We visited them quite a few times throughout the week.

 
These girls crack me up.

 
Little Hands on the Farm is always fun.
Giant pile of dirt to dig in = fun for all.


 
Even Peighton enjoys a little time in the dirt.


 
We waited quite awhile to do our lap on the tractors.


 
We were excited to find an Olaf at Little Hands on the farm!

 
These two made good choices on what to spend their dollar on!

 
We love running into the State Fair ribbons!

 
This was a very fun find.
We raced tigers and horses around a track!

 
Peighton loved it!

 
Bubba couldn't go very fast but did a good job.


 
We found the ribbons again!

 
We joined the Blue Ribbon Kids Club this year.
Such a fun thing to do each day!
We got to plants seeds and make a yummy dirt cup.

 
Everybody loves a good dirt cup!

 
We also caught the tiger show that day.
It was hot and we didn't make it to the end but we did like seeing the tigers!

 
Giant cow topiary.
Peighton wanted a picture.

 
And she gave it a hug.
