Amanda and Jason and the Iowa State Fair

We had such a fun visit with my cousin Amanda and her boyfriend Jason. They came to visit from AZ. I am so happy that they decided to come out and see Lainey and the rest of us! We loved meeting Jason and spending the weekend with them. Amanda and I were roomies all through college and we know everything about each other, so it was only right that I should get to finally meet her boyfriend! He is such a great guy and is so easy going. I mean, we crammed a mattress on the floor in Lainey's room for him,(she slept in our room), with princess sheets and a Nemo pillow and he didn't complain a bit! We all went to the Iowa State Fair and had a blast. We ate yummy food, saw some of the local talent and livestock, the kids rode a ride and went to the petting zoo, and we saw the Shawn Johnson statue made out of butter! we loved it. By the end of the day, the kiddos were getting tired, so we took Lainey out of the stroller and Amanda carried her and Maggie rode in the baby seat. She thought she was pretty cool! Every evening that they were here, we watched the Olympics. We are Olympic fans and LOVE watching the competitions. Amanda hooked the girls up with new princess costumes just in time for a princess birthday party. They were so excited. We had such a fun weekend! Thanks for coming out!
