Fair Days and Dragon Races

First off, if you've got a dial-up connection, I apologize. This post will take a WHILE to download. I've got eleven pictures to share here.

Anthony's labs from Friday were fine. We won't go back until the beginning of November for another round of lab work.

Yesterday was one of the most beautiful days I've seen here in Louisiana in a while. The weather was beautiful, the temperature was perfect, and we had two fun events to attend that were held outside.

We took Anthony to a Church/School Fair first, and he got to ride a few kiddie rides. Mark and I each took him for a ride down a tall slide, and he thought that was pretty great, too.

Anthony enjoyed the slide so much that he tried to climb back
up it after we came down.

Anthony takes his driving VERY seriously.

After the fair, we drove to the LSU lake (small man-made lake on the campus) where my dad and some of his coworkers were in a dragon boat race. Unfortunately, his team didn't qualify for the final rounds. He had a good time, though, and Anthony enjoyed cheering for his Paw Paw. My dad is the guy with the white baseball cap on.

Hope you're all having as great a weekend as we are!

Lots of love, Laurie, Mark and Anthony

My kids love those big slides too. Anthony reminds me so much of my baby in the picture on the carousel. It was a beautiful weekend; glad you took advantage of it!
