First Fair Fun

Over the 4th of July weekend, Wamego had their annual carnival so we decided to take Logan over and check it out.  We did almost everything we could possibly do with a 10 month old and a good time was had by all. Here are a few pictures and videos of the holiday.

Riding the carousel....

on the ferris wheel....

and Logan's favorite part....the ducks...

We also hit the swings before heading home...

When we got home, we set off a few fireworks....

There was also a neighborhood BBQ we attended. Logan wasn't thrilled with the "big" fireworks so we headed home early, but we still got a few good shots.

I realize that the videos are somewhat blurry and cut-off on the right side, but Blogger wouldn't upload the newly sized videos and after struggling with Blogger for nearly 3 hours it is how it is...

Tag, I'm It!

So, I have been tagged!
1. What’s your staple meal (ie. what meal do you cook most often when you can’t be bothered to be adventurous)?
Tacos or something with taco meat. Taco salad, taco shells, burritos, etc.  I always have ingredients for taco meat dishes in my fridge and pantry. More times than not, I have a pound of hamburger already browned (with salt, pepper, onions, and sometimes a can of diced tomatoes if I need it to go further) in the fridge and it is almost too easy to add a can of Mexican beans with chili sauce, a half packet of taco seasoning, and a half can of water. It surprises me how many things I can do with taco meat! Good thing Brian likes it!

2. What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to be a librarian. Particularly a school librarian. I would jump at the opportunity in a heartbeat and do whatever I needed to do to become one. There aren't any opportunities in my district for this, but I will keep my ears open. I have a small library in my classroom and enjoy helping the kids check out books from there. I love to visit with them about what types of books they enjoy, their opinions on the books they have read, etc. Accelerated Reader and book projects are big in my classroom because I love them!

Or a realtor. I think I would be pretty good at it. Too bad there are way too many of them!

3. What book are you reading at the moment (if any)?
I just finished a book titled The Same Sweet Girls (see post here) and have picked up another book by Cassandra King titled The Sunday Wife. I have yet to start it because Sandra Bullock was calling my name from the cover of People magazine.....

4. How do you relax?
Oh boy....Napping! When I need to relax I will lay on the couch and veg infront of the TV, read, or cook.

5. What color are the interior walls of your home?
Living Area--Dark Tan/Light Brown (I would like to lighten this up but Brian is thrilled with this idea because of how difficult it would be.)
Spare Bedroom & Master Bathroom--Country/Sky Blue
Spare Bathroom--Dark Cream/Light Tan
Master Bedroom--A Lemongrass color
Logan's Room--Lemongrass and the Dark Cream/Light Tan
Downstairs Living Area--Burnt Red
Downstairs Bedroom--Tan
Downstairs Office--Ocean Blue/Teal

6. What is your guiltiest pleasure?
I love salted and buttered popcorn with Milk Duds in it. The Milk Duds melt and softened in the popcorn...yum!  I saw this on the move The President's Daughter with Katie Holmes and thought, "Hmm, I should try that!" It isn't the heathiest snack out there so I don't eat it very often, but I enjoy it when I do!

7. What time is bedtime and getting up time?
Logan usually goes to bed between 7 and 8. Brian and I usually hit they hay between 9 and 10, but a lot of times I will read until 10:30 or so. Logan gets up pretty early which means I get up early!  We are almost always up my 6:30 or 7, but there are some days where he'll go back to sleep until 8ish.

8. How long do you spend reading blogs (per day or per week)?
 Way too much! I spend approximately an hour reading blogs but much more than that on the computer!

Now I am supposed to tag other people, so I will tag Kate at KDKG and Jericho at Hammond Happenings. Now I better go get something else accomplished before Logan wakes up from his nap!
