Sunday - 8/22
Since this is the last day of the fair, we always have certain traditions that we do on that last day, including riding the skygliders. I however am terrified of heights, so I stay below and watch. The first picture is of Austin and his girlfriend, who spent the day with us. The 2nd picture is of Ashley and Chelsea, and then poor Jay rides by himself...which as you can see, he spends his time on there wisely. lol
The fair can (and usually does) get exhausting. Catching a quick cat nap on occasion is usually welcomed.
Monday - 8/23
First day of his junior year in high school. As you can see, he just loves taking this picture every year. LOL
Tuesday - 8/24
At the state fair they have a big building where area businesses have booths you can tour and look at their products and/or services. We stopped in at an exercise equipment place and ended up buying an X-Ride. The easiest way to describe it, is like using an elliptical, only you're sitting down. It's something I am able to use right now as I try to build my strength back up. We picked it up today and tonight Jay got it set up.
Wednesday - 8/25
Tucker went back to the vet today because his itching just isn't getting better with the Benedryl they had us try. Plus, before leaving to go he smacked his head on something. I have no clue what, but he ended up with a small gash on his head and a golf-ball sized goose egg. He seriously is just like having a toddler in the house.

Ashley doesn't actually start classes until next week, and she had the day off from work, so today she came home to wrap another package to send to Lance in Afghanistan. He mentioned to her that a couple of the other guys hadn't received a single thing over there yet, so bless her heart, she quickly packed up a couple of other boxes so they could each get one too.
This afternoon we went to Austin's first cross country meet of the season. He came in 5th to last because he rolled his ankle around the 1 mile mark. I was proud of him for finishing the race, even though he was hurting. He was still limping a little bit the next day, but is better now.
Friday - 8/27
Austin's girlfriend came home to our place after they were both finished with cross country practice. She stayed for supper and then they headed to the football game.
Saturday - 8/28
Austin & I went to the local farmers market and I was like a kid in a candy shop! My fridge is now full of lots of fresh veggies and fruits. It smells so good in there!
That's our week! Be sure to head over to Sara's through the link in the side bar to see more 365 pictures!
