State Fair

Yesterday, we went to the state fair!
Goats! Baby goat was sooo cute. 
Yep, that's my deep fried twinkie. I had to try one and it was everything I thought it would be and more. I will never have one again, but damn. 
Jim was going to do the donut burger, but chickened out and got, yep, you guessed it, chicken and cheese fries. 

He won me a unicorn (hellooooo, we love all things Chemosabi-unicorn related!) at the dart game. I don't think he technically won it because I told the guy the story and he only popped one balloon...... But still, yay Jim!!! 

We hung out with our friends, the Jester family. I don't really have any good pics (Trista is a great photog,) but their daughters are adorable and were showing their sheep. They both placed, and won 2nd and 4th prizes plus extras. They are a great family and we love hanging with them. 
I cut out Maya in this pic. I'm sorry, sweetie! 


Anyways, a great time was had by all. We left Jack with his grandparents, and he had a great day, too. He's teething, so we have had some rough nights. 

Today, we are headed to Philly for follow up about his elevated ALT. At CHOP (Children's Hospital of Philly,) they decided to do an ultrasound instead of CT. This is great news for a lot of reasons- no sedation for one. It's also less radiation and there is no IV required. It's good news and after the test we have an appt, so hopefully we will have good news. I will update with a blog tomorrow or this evening. We are also picking up our cousin Anthony from the airport and probably eating our feelings with a cheesesteak. 

Fingers crossed, fans of Jack ! 


  1. Oh, I've grown to love that little boy!! I am hoping for good news!!

  2. If you loved the deep fried Twinkie, you should try a chocolate covered Twinkie. O.M.G. The first time I tried it I think I actually cried it was that good!!

    On a serious note though, hope everything with Jack turns out good. Ya'll are one heck of a strong family and we are continuing to pray, send good juju and well wishes your way!
