Livin the summer life

I have been meaning to update on Dusk's hip condition, but honestly, time has completely gotten away from me. We have been SO busy in the past few weeks...

Fostering a rescue puppy...
(more on this later, I promise - but yes, we are only fostering - she is SUCH a good puppy, but she's a puppy - and we (especially Bodie, who can't seem to learn to play gently no matter how hard he tries) just aren't quite ready for a puppy right now)

Organizing our house (more on this one later as well - we now have working chore charts and a "command central" in our kitchen - and I am LOVING being more organized!) and getting more answers on Dusk's hip issue (more on this one as well, as he has his surgical consult tomorrow) and just enjoying the summer.

Today, I took the kids to the fair (by myself - a pretty scary endeavor with a kiddo like Bodie! haha). Oh.My.Goodness. I am SO SO SO SO glad we went - the kids had SO MUCH fun! So much, in fact, that we're planning on going back next Thursday! Here's a few pics of our awesome day!
All set to enjoy the day! 
 (And yes, I intentionally dress my kids in the same colors for events like this, so I can easily spot them when they run away from me!)
Enjoying what else, but awesome fair food!!!
Seeing animals, and getting into the petting zoo! For the first time, Sierra was totally into it, which was really fun to see (usually, she's more timid around animals)...
 And of course, Bodie got in on the action...
Is this not the sweetest expression ever?!?
 (This was taken about 30 seconds before I looked down to see him silently screaming. It took me a few minutes to get out of him that the goat he had been feeding bit his finger. Poor kiddo. When I told the fair employee about it (it wasn't a big deal, but I needed to know where to get a bandaid), her response was that the goat couldn't have bit him since goats don't have top teeth. I looked at her and said "well, I don't know what to tell you, but one minute, he was feeding a goat, and the next, he's screaming and his finger is bleeding." Go figure. ;-) Happy to say that he recovered quickly once I put a bandaid on it - but really, only Bodie would get bit in a petting zoo. Haha!)
We "rode" the piggy...
 And we stopped for ice cream...(I mean seriously, does this pic scream summer or what???)
Boy, we've come a long way since their time at the fair last summer, right?!? 
Happy rest of the summer from the Bennetts! :-)

  1. How fun!!! I am so glad that you took them and got to enjoy those priceless smiling faces. Sorry Bodie was bitten by a "non-biting goat". :( That lady is nuts.
