Play meow

One of my favorite moments from this week. I bet I have watched this about 20 times!

I asked Lia to "play me out"

Festival Fun

A family tradition- St. Marys Festival and this year did not disappoint. 
We had so much fun. 
Lia met Father Lutz by saying- "Hey I like your dress" 
Father taught her a new word - Cassock - not a dress!!! 

Jim did his good deed by helping move a beautiful baby grand piano outside the church. All the while praying no one dropped it

Lia loved the piano 
She danced
She sang 

And she had the opportunity to play
She played the piano with Father 

With her Opa 

And then had her solo debut! 

Thanks for the tip Opa!! 

Father took requests so Lia requested a few of her favorites 
Somewhere over the rainbow 
Twinkle Twinkle 
Deck the halls 
And Jesus Christ has risen today 

It was 6:30- time for the ham raffle and Opa won it - again!! It's so funny he wins almost every year. We'll be having a huge ham dinner sometime soon. 

Lia headed back to the piano a time or two and the we headed to The Book Loft

It was a beautiful night and we had a great time. 
However - we all missed Oma this year but next year we'll do it again and she'll be feeling better with her new hip and will walk circles around us all!!

A day at the fair

Another year at the Ohio State Fair and another year of beautiful weather! 

Lia LOVED it again. 

Her favorite ride; 
Yep the giant slide. She's is so adventurous. Unlike her mommy- that slide makes me queasy just looking at it. 

She loved the Frog Hopper (again and again) 

And Dumbo (even though it doesn't look like it)!

And the dragon roller coaster 

And the flying bee 

She went on a pony ride, went to the petting zoo, visited a Christmas tree farm and met some baby turkeys 
She loved those baby turkeys 

We watched a pig race hosted by the cutest 5 year old - Pork Chop! 

And we ate our way through the Midway
We had pizza, fair fries, lemonade, an Icee and our most favorite thing of all; 
Roasted corn!!! 

We took the SkyRide back over the Midway 

And then

You guessed it, fell asleep in the car - we were not even out of the parking lot. 
Good times
