I think I’ve started something I can’t quite possibly keep up with. I had to work frantically to get this annual slideshow up in time for Madison’s birthday today. I even had to work on this during my conference call yesterday, but nevertheless, here it is.
Madison, you have grown so much in the 5 years since we first met you. You amaze us with new things everyday. From your vocabulary, to your memory, to your personality. We couldn’t be any more proud of you and we’re so lucky to have you call us mommy and daddy. You’re the best sister that any brothers can have (at least in Aiden’s case). I’m sure in time, you’ll warm up to Evan once he decides to stop hitting you You’re our little girl, our world, and our life.
~Love, Mommy & Daddy.

It’s time for our annual LA County Fair visit. We purchased a Groupon that was good for 4 tickets. Grandparents ended up not going and luckily for us, those were split up into individual tickets and not one ticket that allows 4 guests in. So that means, we’ll be back to the fair again before they close at the end of the month.
We went on a Friday evening and the weather was surprisingly cool. But the biggest surprise of all was the lack of crowd. We have NEVER seen the fair this empty. When I say empty, I don’t mean literally empty. There was still plenty of people, but there weren’t long lines for food and there was ample room to push the stroller around. It was the perfect amount of crowd. So overall, this was one of the better fair visits. Good weather and great crowd. As usual, it was the same thing, but you know how kids are, they have short memory. It was as if this was the first time they’ve been to the fair.

Our summer of weddings continued. This is our 3rd cousin to get married in as many months. This time, it was Steve and Esther. Steve and Ben are brother. We attended Ben’s wedding at the end of May. The wedding was an extravagant one with a live band and dragon dancing. It was especially huge with about 600 people. It was a local wedding at the San Gabriel Hilton so we didn’t have to drive far. I think the kids have gotten accustomed to weddings. Madison kept asking why she wasn’t the flower girl at this wedding.
Here he is at it again. Getting ready to show everyone how it’s done.

Mommy had to work today so I had to figure out where I could take the kids. I looked around and came across a traveling exhibit entitled Dinosaur World. It was fairly close enough in Pasadena and looked like there was a lot for the kids to do. When we got there, it wasn’t too busy. The first thing that stood out was the abundance of bouncers and obstacle courses there. In fact, there were more of those than the dinosaur exhibit. The kids didn’t really care too much for the dinosaurs as some of them, especially the moving ones scared them. They were great with the jumper, not wanting to get out and leave. Eventually they did leave and we grabbed some burgers at Islands.
