Well, we made it home. We had to leave a little earlier than planned to get home to watch DEA dog. But we had a great trip! We even brought Aunt Alyssa back with us, so I am sure we will have a great time this week!
I do apologize that we didn't get to see everyone. It was a busy week and we didn't stay in town the whole time so it was hard to get around to everyone.
As usual, it was a long ride home, but Drew watched a few movies and slept just a Little bit.
When Drew wants quiet, sometimes he says "Stop singing!" Of course with his southern accent, he says 'stop sangin'. Yes, my boy has a southern accent, not so sure how, but he does. It's kind of funny sometimes.
On the car ride home, apparently Daddy was talking too much and Drew held his hand out and said "STOP WORDING!" It was so funny and he was so serious. We decided he meant Stop Talking.
One of Drew's favorite things about staying at Great Grandma's House was picking little tomatoes every night! That boy LOVES tomatoes!
Kids Day also means $1 Ride Day! Drew was able to ride the carousel with Daddy. He had such a good time riding his zebra!
Drew exceeded the 42" minimum to ride rides by himself! Can you believe it! He is such a big boy! He rode this car ride 3 times Wednesday. He had such a big smile on his face the whole time he was "driving!"
Riding the Helicopter with Aunt Alyssa. He told her every time the went "up" and "down"
We spent some time at the fair in the evening with Tony's Dad. Apparently I didn't take any pictures (bad mommy), but I must say that Grandpa is a sucker! He carried Drew around and let him drink his pop. He just can't say no to our little sweetie! :-)

Drew loved petting the baby chicks

This time they let him try on the fireman clothes! How cool is that! They were so heavy that the fireman was basically holding Drew up and when he put the hat on him, they were actually holding it.
Once again Drew did love the BIG wheels on the trucks. He is still obsessed with the wheels, but this year he also spent a lot of time checking out all of the gadgets on the truck. He even managed to turn a gear on the side of the truck and accidently made water come out. He even did this under the supervision of TWO firemen. I was right there and luckily caught it before he made a big mess. The firemen were completely surprised that he was able to figure it out. Don't underestimate my kid!
LOOK - TWO WHEELS!!!

I had some extra fabric from the bag and the lining so I thought I could make him shorts and a shirt from it. I appliqued trucks from the truck fabric on pockets on the back and side of the shorts. He loves his Truck Shorts and Truck Shirt!

Well, it was time for another hair cut. Let's just say, poor Drew has to feel A LOT better! I knew he needed a haircut but didn't realize how "fluffy" it had gotten. I took Drew back to Big Leage Cuts, which is where I took him last time. They have TV screens at every station and they are GREAT with kids. They change the television to Noggin or something appropriate and it has gone so well both times we have gone there. The worst part is always just getting that cape around his neck! Drew even loves waiting there. He loves to read the numbers on all of the chairs, which are actual stadium seats.

I love the fact that he truly LOVES letters, words, and reading. We don't push him at all. He is constantly trying to read new words and sound them out. We can't go anywhwere in public without him trying to read every sign. We can't walk past door mats in stores and restaurants without reading the door mat. You probably didn't realize that there are so many door mat's with store names on them, I didn't either until Drew started reading! We are always holding people up at entries because Drew has to read the door mat!
Here's a video of "the word game" last night. Excuse the sloppy editing, While the video is over a minute long, I still chopped out quite a bit so it wouldn't too long for you!
