We took Finn to the Orange County Fair last Friday. We thought he would love it, but he had a mini meltdown in the first twenty minutes or so. After we were able to escape the crowd and eat some dinner, he seemed fine, so we walked the fair and ate some of that yummy greasy food, and Finn started to enjoy himself a bit.

We even managed to take a few pictures in the Photo Booth, which I was pretty happy about. :)

My sister Morgan, and her husband Mike were there too, and helped Finn feel at ease.

I think Josh was in heaven. He loves the fair and the beer, pickles, and fried delicious-ness. I mean I NEVER get smiles like this from him on camera. ;)

Finn is now officially walking everywhere. He will crawl when he wants to get somewhere in a hurry, but he picks himself up and walks all over the place. It’s been so fun to watch him gain the confidence he needed to make that step. It was like two days ago a light went on, and he realized that he could get places by walking.

I’m loving it so far, but we were somewhat surprised at how tall he is now and we’ve discovered table-tops and counter tops are no longer out of Finns reach. Yikes!

Response to our e-course has been amazing and Tracey, Jeanne, Kim, Jen and I are already hard at work recording videos, planning projects and sharing our very best ideas and decor tricks. So, thank you!

If you haven’t already signed up, there is still plenty of time, as class starts in October. The early registration rate is ending soon, however, so if you want to save a few bucks, act now!

    What awesome pictures Sara!! I still remember when we first took our boys to the OC fair, my youngest wasn’t really sure about it either.
    Congrats on Finn walking, how exciting!! Pretty soon he’ll be running everywhere and you’ll be chasing after him and then they never stop. :)
    Hope you have a great afternoon.
