Steam Show Staycation...


The first weekend in August is the annual Pioneer Steam Show in our town.  We always have a ton of fun as a family.  The last few years we have treated it as our vacation, or staycation.  We have found it exhausting to travel when you have little kids, especially infants.  When we come home we almost need a vacation from our vacation.  So, until our kids get a little older, this will be the vacation spot for us.  We are grateful that our friends who set up camp for the whole weekend let us invade their space!  We cook, eat, visit, and enjoy the sights then head home for the evening to our air conditioned home with comfy beds only to wake up and do it again the next day!  We only live a couple miles from the show! 

During the show I do have to throw in a couple hours of work as the sorority that I am in is in charge of parking cars.  Last year I pulled the pregnancy card.  It was hot last year!  Like 95+ degrees!!!  This year I had to do my part with a little help...



Banner the baby whisperer...
While we were walking around the flea markets Jody lost her pacifier.  Luckily she fell asleep without it!
It was hot in those flea markets so ice cream was a must!


Sleeping baby and ice cream cones, perfect!  Now time for a cruise...



Time for the parade with cousins...
The lineup...
Love these two together...
Trust me, Brad was happy, but it was hot and the parade line seemed to move so slow!!!
Jo did great.  I was prepared to hop off the wagon at any moment with her.  This was post losing the pacifier, so I didn't think she would last.  Give the girl a package of Mum-Mums and she is good to go!

On Friday and Saturday evenings they have a spark show...
What do you do when you forget the keys to the camper?  Stick a 7-year old through the window;)..
These tractors are my favorite!  Always have been.  No, I'm not talking about the color.  They are called High Crop tractors...

I told Brad all I want for Christmas is a High Crop tractor.  He said they are very expensive so I guess I shouldn't hold my breath.

We are already looking forward to next year!!
