Lake County Fair '07

Here we are at the Lake County Fair!

Joshy with his corn-dog.

The younger ones made some candles from bee's wax!

Joy and Naomi with their new friend! ;)

This is a little pig that we found there!

While we were there it started raining pretty bad! So we ran into the 4-H building (after we were soaked) and then. . .the power went out!! The power was flickering quite a bit! Eventually the lights came on and stayed on, but the rain and thunder kept coming (BTW, the 4-H building is my mom's and sisters favorite building. Lucky for them! I like it too, though not as much!)!
After about twenty minutes it stopped raining, so we went out. . . and everything was soaked! Well, that's how it was afterward. . . soaked!

And since we were in there, we took some pictures. . .

. . .a very big pumpkin (1,154 lbs.) !!

A bird house! (Who would guess?? I wonder how they got in? Through the nose? Yuck!)

And a couple of singers.

We went on rides . . .

Me and Naomi on the "Yo-Yo". (The ride went alot higher than what you see! This is when it was ending!)

Brothers bumping. . .

. . .Joy on a "Twirl-a-Whirl". . .

. . .Ravi and Stephen "riding" motorcycles. . .

. . .Joy and Joshy. . .

. . .And Ravi with Josh.

Joshua's Birthday!

Joshy's 3rd birthday was on July 22nd! We went to my cousins house for Joshy's birthday, partly because it was also my uncle Bob's birthday, too!

Joshy and his Elmo pinata.

"Hit it hard, Josh!"

Would you guess these guys are brothers? ( l. to r.- My Dad, uncle Is, and uncle Rey)

Joshy loves the outdoors (especially, when he could go out with his shoes off!)! He's the average boy who loves wrestling, cars, balls, and bugs. He'll ask for a cookie with "puppy-dog eyes" and you'll usually find it hard not to give it to him! Right now he's being potty trained and. . .well, I guess we can say it'll probably take a little while!! Anyway, he's still the lovable and cute little guy that we love! =)

~I love you, Joshy! And I pray that you will grow up to be a mighty man of God and do His work! Along with all of your four brothers! I hope to become a better older sister and be a good example to you! God bless you!~
