We also had a play date with some old ECFE school friends. My friend, Carrie, recently had another baby boy, so we brought over some goodies for lunch and a taggy blanket I made. While Spencer was in toy heaven with all of his friend Austin's tractors and trains, it was nice catching up with my friend and snuggling her itty bitty baby, Garrett. It's always amazes me how tiny newborn babies are and how quickly they grow. Only eight short months ago my very own baby was that little.
The highlight of the week was probably the county fair, though. We started with the petting zoo and animal barns, but Spencer wasn't having any of that. He only had eyes for the rides. After a super fast carousel ride where Ashton seemed completely indifferent to the horse going up and down and around, Spencer enjoyed ride after ride. He started on a pirate ship that swung back and forth. It made Dave and I a little nervous since he was the smallest kid on the ride and he couldn't even reach the handle. But a few seconds into the ride, Spencer was grinning and squealing and laughing. We ended at the big slide, where we "weeee'd!" our way down and then decided it was so much fun that Daddy had to take a turn, too.

|How can he be big enough to sit on these ride-on toys?!|
