The Austin County Fair

Finally done!
William and I both took off work Thursday and Friday. We loaded up the car and headed out Wednesday after work. The parade started at 10 am the next morning. Mary was ready with her new Wranglers and a red vest. William drove the car for them in the parade and I waited at the end of the route with the rest of the family. As they went by, William stopped and I got Mary out so she could enjoy the rest of the parade. William said about half way through the parade she got tired and just rested her head and hand on the car door, still waving to all of the parade goers.

After the parade, we went to the parade luncheon, where Pa-Pa was presented with a plaque for being parade marshall and another for all of the years of service and volunteering.
Afterwards, Mary and Kathryn enjoyed a lemonade.

That night we returned to the fair to enjoy the cool weather and more fair food! Mary also learned a difficult lesson on the stairs. She took quite a tumble down and busted her bottom lip and rearranged 2 of her top teeth. We thought everything was alright and the teeth felt tight. However, this week we noticed her front tooth started changing color and is loose. William will take her to the dentist on Tuesday to get it checked out.

Mary and Amy both wore their pink shirts to support the "tough enough to wear pink" to raise money for breast cancer research.

Amy is now 3 months old!!!

Saturday morning Kathryn came out for a play date. They took a break to enjoy some treats that Grandma made.

Mary had fun riding all of the kiddie carnival rides.

I think one of Mary's favorite things to do was to track down Ms. Sherry and ask her if she could pet the horse. Here they are together.

Here are more pictures from the fair week.
