The Fair!!!!

This past Thursday we headed out to the NC State Fair!! I love, love, LOVE the fair. Here is how the day went....

We arrive at the fair about 10:30am and enjoy some ham, sausage, and plain biscuits then head out to watch the bike show and saw some amazing stunts like this...

Then we ate the most delicious ice cream ever, from the NCSU creamery. It's the BEST!!

After ice cream we went off to ride some rides

Took a little walk and learned about farming

We held some baby chicks, ducks and turkeys. And checked out all the other animals

We walked around some more and looked at all the fun things. Then met up with Grandma and Papa and had some yummy food. Who doesn't love ribbon fries, turkey legs, corn on the cob, corn dogs, and cotton candy??

We walked around the exhibit halls and collected stickers(Hailey got the most with 10), and then went on some more rides and played some games.

Lastly we gathered on a hill to see my most favorite thing....FIREWORKS!!!

After the amazing fireworks display, we walked to car to head home. We left about 10:30pm, and had a BLAST!! Can't wait till next year!

What's Going On...

Okay, sorry I have slacked on my blogging, but here are the fun happenings of the Beckstrand family.... Hailey got to cheer lead with the Louisburg High School (where my mom teaches) cheerleaders. She LOVED it, and she did a great job. I was very proud!

Blake is growing up! He likes to take showers all by himself:) And he has moved to a big boy bed!! So long crib, Blake prefers the bunk bed now:)

I turned 27!! And had a great birthday WEEKEND!! It started Thursday when my BEAUTIFUL friends surprised me with dinner (notice all the food on the table)! Friday, I celebrated with Stephen and the kids at home, it was PERFECT. We had pizza and cookie cake. And Stephen surprised me with a Nook!! He is WONDERFUL!

On Saturday, my parents watched the kiddos so Stephen and I could go to Dave Ramsey Live!! It was fun and helped us get even more motivated to pay off our debt!! After that Stephen and I went to dinner just the two of us. Sunday was my mom's and nephew Sean's birthday, so we all got together and celebrated!! We had to move the party to my sis-in- law Amber's parents house, because the power went off at our house. Ahh, good times! It really was a FANTASTIC birthday!!! Thanks to everyone for making me feel so loved, you all are the BEST!

I think that about wraps it up.
