A Dentist Needed for Wild Things...

Today Ben turns 4 months old and Jack took some adorable photos of him that I'll hopefully post soon. But I just had to share a quick post with today's "Kids say the darnedest things" moment (we have one almost every day but I don't always get around to recording them!). While Jack read tonight's bedtime stories, he learned that, according to the girls, Maurice Sendak's 'wild things' go around "Smashing their terrible teeth" before rolling their terrible eyes and showing their terrible claws! Ha!

A Fairly Good Time

We went to the Indiana State Fair this weekend. It was my first state fair as well as the girls' and Ben's, and we all had a great initiation into the world of show animals and 4-H fun! (and funnel cakes. Mmmmmm... funnel cakes) The pony rides were an especially big hit for the girls, especially Alex who is apparently more of an animal lover than we realized. With each animal we saw, she didn't want to let go of her new pig, horse, calf, or sheep friends. And neither girl had a potty accident the whole time we were out. They're potty pros now!
Alex and her new friend:

Dani took awhile to warm up to petting the animals:

Tractor Time!

Dani's not sure she likes the Carousel:

Alex enjoyed her ride:

I can't wait to go back next year and have more new experiences and see how Benny likes the Fair!
