I cannot wait, I have always loved babies and it seems surreal to think that this one will be mine. I will get to hold him whenever I want, instead of being polite and waiting for others.

On Tuesday we made sure to make it to the Eastern Idaho State Fair. It started last Saturday, and goes until this Saturday. We were hoping to go when the weather wouldn't be too bad, and didn't want to go on labor day because we figured it would be packed. The weather was awful on Monday, so I was praying that Tuesday would be better. And guess what the weather was perfect! And that is saying something, coming from a pregnant lady. It wasn't too hot or cold and the wind was minimal! Yay! We went for about 5 hours, and our good friends the Burkholder's went with us. At the beginning of the summer semester one of Zac's mission companions moved into our ward and then had their little boy in June. So we all traveled together and walked around. It was fun to go with friends, and have a good time before the semester started.

Courtney, Joel, and Lincoln in front of the sign as well. Lincoln actually did great, considering he is only three months. He is such a fun baby, and he is growing so fast!
There was a section for little kids to learn how to work on a farm, this is where you learn to milk a cow. They also had a pooper scooper section, saddling a horse, building a scarecrow, and riding little tractors. Too bad we didn't have a toddler with us, it would have been fun to watch them play.
We also went to the little petting Zoo where you could buy some food to feed the animals. The llamas were trying to chew on peoples clothes, there were goats everywhere climbing on the gates and chasing all the little kids trying to get their food. It was actually pretty funny to watch. They also had little pigs who were born two days before, and they were so cute and tiny, they would probably fit in one hand. We saw alpacas, turtles, ducks, miniature horses, a few bunnies, and a bunch of puppies for sale that you could pet and hold. Some of the puppies were so adorable.
Of course we made our way over to the food. We had a teriyaki bowl, and some fried trout. And we also shared a tiger ear, or elephant ear, they were huge! Joel and Courtney also had a hamburger and a milkshake. We debated about getting more, but decided to go get milkshakes at Rupe's instead. Of course they were cheaper and way yummy!
Here is Joel sitting with Lincoln at Rupe's. They weren't playing, but I thought it was funny.

More importantly, they are moving because my Dad was offered a job there. They moved from Ely just over two years ago, and I was a little sad. But my Dad's job closed back in April or so and my parents have been looking for about 6 months. This is such a blessing and I am so grateful!
