Last week was also the Prime Beef Festival in Monmouth. Mommy, Daddy, Carson, Parker, Grandma Vancil, Uncle Justin and Sara all went to the parade on Wednesday.
This is "fire dog".
Parker gave fire dog "5" and was a little less scared than when we made him give Chuckie Cheese five...see earlier post...
Now the story is:
"Fire Dog Five"
You gave the fire dog a high five?
The fire dog has soft hands?
After the parade we went out the fair for a look around and hopefully dinner at the Lutheran tent...all I wanted was a burger and cherry pie...however, for the 2nd year in a row I didn't get my pie! The line was way to long and the hour was getting late so I settled on a corn dog and Uncle Bud's cider slush..YUM!
Parker got to go on his first carnival ride. An enclosed tilt-a-whirl type ride with large dragon/dinosaur creatures. There was green, orange, blue, purple and pink...what color did our son pick???
After one trip around Parker says...."all done!?!"
Although a little skeptical, I think he had a good time.
Last Tuesday mommy had to go back to work. Carson is attending the same daycare as Parker and has adjusted well. It helps knowing Kim takes such good care of the boys and that Carson has his big brother there to watch out for him ;)
This past week was the Stearman Fly-In at Galesburg airport. Parker has gained a new love of planes and all week would say, "airpane, airpane" and take off running to the front window to see the all flying overhead.
On Labor Day, Grandma Vancil met us at the air port on a very blustery, cool, morning to see all of the airplanes.
We weren't too sure about the tram ride, but it was the only way to get out to see the stearman planes up close so we made him ride and once the tram was moving we did just fine! :)
Bue, yewow, bue, airpane!
Carson doesn't not currently share the same love of airplanes. He was just happy to have a cozy napping location!
Happy Labor Day!
This 989 plane is the one that Travis got to ride in when he flew over Nielson school for their annual fly over.
Love this shot!
On Friday, in the rain, we went to the airshow. It was really cool, even with the rain and I can't wait to go again next year with hopefully better weather. Parker dug it too. The best part was at the end of the show two fighter jets buzzed the airport. Since Friday Parker has been talking about the Jets that go fast and high, and loud.
