Every year we head up to Ben's family farm for Potato Harvest. Even before I met Ben and was a student up there, I loved to be around during that time of year. Now, I love it just the same ... maybe even more.
The girls got to spend the day with their dad.
And Ben got to spend the day with his dad.
I love that.

Eden was terrified of the potatoes. ("Tatoes Scary") So so funny.

Deer Creek Reservoir

We headed up to Deer Creek for the day with our friends, the Lawrences. Their two daughters have all but raised my kids - babysitting Tay and Aves since they were babies. They are like family to us. We spent the day on the lake where they introduced us to wakesurfing (I think Ben's hooked).
We went on the last possible day before it got too cold. I am already missing the summer!

State Fair

Our annual trip to the state fair! I have only missed it once - and that was because I was in the hospital after having Téa. I would have gone if the doctors let me.
Ben had his annual stint as Templeton, eating his way through the fair. I had my annual stint of going on as many rides with the girls as I can. . .until I'm sick.
We shut the place down! It was close to 11pm and we were going strong. Even Eden was still hyper.
Seriously. . .one of my very favorite traditions.
