Summer's Last Hurrah

That's right folks. Summer has officially come to an end. How can this be? I'm pretty sure that as long as I don't flip the month on the calendar I can still pretend it's August. But, with the end of August comes the Evergreen State Fair and since we'd never been we piled into the car and headed down the road for some fun, excitement and healthy food. (There was a piece of lettuce in the gyro I ate.) :)

Isabelle and Madeleine loved visiting all the animals.
We even saw two-day-old piglets! The "awww" factor on that was pretty huge.

There were pony rides...

...and thrill rides.

Did anyone else notice that Jason went on all the spinning rides? That definitely was not an accident.
Look at this delicious cuisine! Curly fries and elephant ears - delectable! At any other time I would probably turn up my nose in disgust but every once in a while we go a little crazy. However, not crazy enough to sample the fried Twinkies and candy bars. Look at Maddy reaching for the elephant ear! She couldn't get enough!
As if the seasons were plotting against me, the next morning the weather changed and all we could do was stare glumly out the window at the rain.
Right before the fair we had a fun visit from Uncle Jeremy, Jason's brother.
Isabelle and Madeleine had so much fun with him!
And so tomorrow it's back to school for me and the beginning of school for Isabelle. I can't believe that in a few short hours she'll be a kindergartner! Believe me, the camera will be poised and ready as I hold back tears and sniffle through the day.

I can't believe that summer is over either, thou the weather and storms out there differ with what the calendar states. I can't believe that Isabelle is starting kindergarten already! Boy, time does go by very fast. Post some pictures of the girls soon...can't wait to see what adorable outfit she gets for her first day....Is she in your school? How is Maddy doing and is she going to any preschools....can she do PK-2's yet? XOXO
