Headed to the Great LaPorte County Fair! and some great apron tutorials

I'm taking the kiddos to Indiana for 2 1/2 weeks in July. This is where I grew up and visiting during the county fair is the best way to see the most amount of people in such a short time. My summers revolved around 4-H projects, riding my horse, and getting ready for the fair. I'm excited to share this with my kids, and also to show them off a bit!

The downside to all of this, is that I'll have to endure the 2.5 hour flight with my almost 2 year old. "Lord, please bless the poor souls sitting next to me on that flight. Please give them (as well as myself) all the patience you can muster. Amen"

Every girl that goes to the fair needs a new pair of boots. So we drove out to the largest western store I've ever been to and bought her some. I told her that I wanted her to wear them until they had holes in the bottom (little kids boots aren't cheap!). I feel guilty for spending that on myself. Oh well, I'll wear my $5 flip flops while my girl looks adorable in her new pink boots. That's the way it should be.

So here's a picture of my little gypsy girl (the hair was braided for church - but as you can see, that quickly came out the second we walked in the door).

I wish I could give her a pony to ride like I had when I was little. But, ponies require more than a subdivision lot. Guess I have a lot more appreciation for what my parents gave me, now that I have children of my own. Guess that's the way it's supposed to be. "Thank you Lord for giving me the blessing of children. Amen"

Oh! and I am happy to see that my tutorial was placed on this list: http://http// a GREAT list of free apron patterns as well as other stuff. I haven't had a chance to check it out completely yet, but sure looks like fun.I'm happy to say that my inspiration apron will be going to a new home - to Jan in Michigan. Thanks Jan!

We also celebrated hubby's 35th birthday on Tuesday. Happy Birthday Honey - you're a great Dad and wonderful husband.
