The Ostrich Festival

Yesterday we took the boys to the Ostrich Festival that Chandler puts on every year. They have a big carnival with rides, shows and live Ostrich races! It was pretty funny to watch the Ostrich races and the boys wanted to ride them but we had to tell them that it's only for trained professionals! We had a great long day but loaded with fun!!!

This is the first ride the kids did, we were there so long and did so many things plus it was so crowded it was hard to get pictures so I am only posting some of the pictures I took. Andrew and Hunter are the two cute kids in the yellow!

My sweetie watching the boys fly by!

If you can see him there's Parker next to the little girl!

Have I told you how much I love carousels!!!

Everything has it's opposites right? Well...
I HATE Ferris wheels!

I am terrified of heights and the last time I rode a Ferris Wheel I was a freshman in high school. I rode with my Dad and was scared the entire time. So yesterday the 3rd ride we went on scared Parker and he refused to go on anymore. Well later that night he asked to go on the Ferris Wheel which meant that I would have to go because the rules were that parents had to ride with their children. So Kevin rode with Parker and i rode with Andrew and Hunter. Let's just say we didn't make it far before I completely panicked and asked to get off. But my sweet boys understood and it was a good thing cause Parker panicked and they got off right behind us!

Below the boys are on another ride and Andrew is helping Parker across because the poor kid is so scared! I wonder where he gets his fear of heights from!

So we took the boys on this fun tug boat and of course Parker cried the whole time!

Hunter could not get enough of this ride! It was a maze with slides and stuff in it! He kept going through over and over again! We did get Parker to try this one but he went in and came right back out! Silly boy!

So now is what you have all been waiting for the STAR Andrew met from his favorite TV show is...

David Henri who plays Justin Russo on Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place! Andrew was so excited and we waited in line for 2 hours yesterday just so Andrew could meet him. The things we do for our children right!!!

What a fun day! My kids were going crazy over the picture of the boys with Justin Russo - they LOVE that show! The fear of heights thing runs in our family. I have it, Hannah has it, (she couldn't even do the stairs at mom's house for the longest time), and Grandpa Woolley had it too - so now you know who you got it from! LOL Love ya!

WHAT!? And you didn't tell us!! I'm kidding, looks like a blast! McKayla probably would have freak and then it wouldn't have been much fun. That is so awesome that you all got to meet David Henri. We LOVE that show! Loved seeing the pics!
