We went to Harvest Fest today and had so much fun. It is one of the few free venues at the State Fair. There are stations to decorate cookies, make your own caramel apples, feed/pet animals, go on a hay ride and, of course, eat food! This year we went into the lights tour of the haunted house. What a fun place! The haunted house is HUGE and would be so scary in the dark. Kaitlyn said she wanted to go when it was dark but changed her mind after going through with the lights on. LOL!

Today was my nephew's 1st bday party. Isn't he a cutie?! He didn't quite know what to do with the cake but when he figured it out...he went to town! The last picture is so cute--it looks like he might have had a little too much sugar. (That fork is actually stuck on his shirt from the frosting) :)

I watched my nephew last night. Isn't he adorable? The girls were across the street at a birthday party but Kaitlyn ran home and had to get a quick hug in before running back to have some more fun.

This is one of the pictures I developed and printed in my photography class last semester. My final project was done at one of our local cemeteries. This photo was one of my favorites. We had to take pictures using 4x5 film on a view camera. The view camera is not my favorite piece of equipment but towards the end I was having fun. I think I lived at the cemetery for a couple weeks!

What a morning! Kaitlyn is going to middle school now which means I have two different schools to drive to in the morning. Can I just say I HATE traffic?! What is normally a 5-10 min drive takes almost 30min in the morning. I was up late last night which meant it was definitely a Starbucks morning. I don't like coffee-but frappuccino's are my absolute fave drink! Always the same chip frappuccino light please!

Wow! Getting photos up right after I take them...that's a new one for me. The first day of school has finally arrived. Kaitlyn is now in middle school and Sydney is in 4th grade. This will probably be the only day this year they are both ready a whole 1/2 hour early and excited to go to school!
