I realized shortly after posting my "Summer Activities" post this morning that I had left out a great time at the Bluegrass Fair! How could I forget? Well, because I didn't have any pictures on my camera... that's how. :) Cilla needed a model for some photos she wanted to place at Hopscotch (a local children's boutique) and she asked if Bailey would be willing to help. We quickly agreed... we love getting the photos when we do these things and Bailey really loves being up all over Hopscotch's walls.
It worked out that we were able to go to the Bluegrass Fair. One, Cilla had been wanting to try out the fair for photos... and two, we wanted to go and spend some time with Rebecca and Joseph at the fair.
So, we all went. :)
The kids had a complete blast. I think we were there from like 8 p.m. until after 11. They all enjoyed the rides. Joseph wasn't a fan of the rides that went high in the air. Jake wasn't a fan of the Haunted House, which was filled with bad guys. lol. Bailey was a fan of everything. She loved it all. Naturally. :) Jake did surprise us in how much he enjoyed the high-speed rides, especially the ones that went in circles, like the Tilt-A-Whirl. He and I rode it together and I don't think I've laughed that hard in years. Jake even looked at me at one point and said, "This is fun..." When I agreed that it was fun, he said, "Stop screaming then. It's not scary." lol. I was a fan of the funnel cakes... just another glowing example of the greasy food I love. :)
Anyway, here are some of Cilla's photos from that night. I have to say that we have some pretty cute kids to photo, but Cilla is amazing. My mom called me after seeing these and said, "Either the kids are getting cuter or Cilla is just getting that much better. These are awesome."
Here's a link to her blog about it, too. It's a good post... it really shows how "wonderful" of a model Bailey is... she takes it ultra-serious. :)
