Fast forward another week to the following weekend. This time it was just The Boy and Danny took him out to the lake for the afternoon so Baby D and I had the house to ourselves. Finished a custom order and got that mailed out. Much laundry completed too and finished pulling out all the summer clothes I'd put away last year when I was too roundly-pregnant to wear them! It was like shopping in my own closet.
Been going through Baby D's outgrown clothes and listing things slowly on Ebay. Seems like he outgrow everything overnight! Our living room is a clutter of outgrown clothes and equipment that is either ready to be returned to their original owners or put on Craigslist. It will be nice to get our living spaces back after having such large pieces in them like the swing, bassinette, bouncy seat and Bumbo seat!
Here is a link to the Ebay listings, if you have any need for baby boy clothes! I've got more listings to come...
After a quiet Saturday, we were geared up for our Big Sunday. We had tickets to the San Diego County Fair and were ready to play! Danny's grandma works there seasonally so she gifted us with free entry tickets and enough tickets for the kids to go on three rides.

Ready for fun!
Some crazy spinny thing...
Himalaya ride, their favorite!
We walked through the garden area, woodcarving, gem show, kiddieland, watched a lamb competition, Monster truck rally (louder than loud...I'm still deaf and I was about 50 feet outside the complex!) amd a yearly favorite, the Swifty Swine Pig Races.
My husband prides himself on being a self-professed cheap-skate and we were able to get out of the Fair without spending a dime. Fortunately we have kids who know that if they want a snack, it comes toted in the backpack and not purchased for $10 at the stand and they were satisfied with the rides and shows we were able to see. They carefully chose their three rides and were happy and content with just going on three. I actually blogged about this from our day at the Fair last year when I was impressed with the kids and how content they are and don't fuss about what they don't have. We had great attitudes from everyone the entire day, including Baby D, who happily sat in his stroller.
I love this picture of Baby D. He was watching the kids on the Himalaya and it looked like he was really crabby with his poochy lips pouted out, like he was upset that he wasn't able to go on it too!
Maybe next year little brother, we'll let you go on something fun too! Other than a spin in the stroller, of course!
