Fair Days

We got to spend the day at The Ohio State Fair yesterday. For the record, I LOVE the fair! I love all the animals, people watching, junk food I eat once a year, the smiles & squeals that come from my children. This year was extra special because it's the first year Baby {J} has really been into it. He's finally old enough to know whats up. He's watched the older kids ride the rides, eat the food and visit the animals in the past, but this year he was able to take part. He was in love with the pigs and worked up the courage to pet a few horses-very tentatively. He rode his first ride and pony.

Ice cream, cotton candy, funnel cakes and lemonades were had by all. I think everyone went home with belly aches last night- the good kind though. The kind that comes from too much junk food, but you don't even care cause it was so good and so fun eating it. It was a good day!



This weekend was amazing.  Just simple, casual time spent together as a family. Laughter, swimming, popcorn- good old American Summer Fun! I feel like I really connected with the kids on so many levels. My heart is full of love tonight, and swelling. As I kissed all four of their little heads goodnight, I couldn't help but want to wake them up, continue the weekend, so it would not end. It was a fleeting thought, but felt good. It feels good to be surrounded in so much joy. 



It's been quiet here at the blog this summer. It wasn't an intentional thing, it's grown more as a necessary thing I guess. With four little ones to entertain, feed, play with {and clean up after} this Mama is just tired. At the end of the day i have crawled in bed with some knitting or a book rather than head to the laptop. I compose witty, fun posts in my head some days. They never seem to make it the computer though. I have this weird problem of intending to spend 15 minutes on the computer and then find myself 2 hours later pouring over Etsy & catching up on blog reading. Only me?

I have been enjoying this calm, freedom that summer has afforded me. I always need a bit of a break this time of year. I hoping in the months to follow to get back on here daily though. I enjoy blogging and have started to miss it as of late. Hope all you readers are enjoying a relaxing, calm summer so far as well.

If you want to keep up with us a little more, I am on instagram now. Love some instant gratification! Come by and follow, you can find us with the same username- Kunklebaby. I'll leave you with a few pictures of our summer. Ohhh the fairy houses my children have been building. It's so magical & fun to watch them so involved in foraging and building from eldest, right down to the youngest.
