Wayne County Fair!!!

This last week was the Fair, and boy was it fun. Elise was so excited to see all the sweet baby animals, and Nicolas was afraid that everyone was going to get bit. It was so sweet to see him trying to protect them by moving them (unwillingly) away from the cages. The kids get a day off for the fair, so we all went Monday, and the kids each rode the dragon roller coaster!! We had cotton candy and watched the tractor pull, which is my personal favorite. We told Nicolas that next year we'll get tickets to the demolition derby, and I can't wait for that! It's funny how something so destructive can bring a child so much joy!

Well, I realized that we never shared pictures from Haley's baptism in March, so here they are! It was a very special day. Nels' parents came to visit and share the experience with her.
