It was our annual kick-off-the-summer Fair trip.  In usual fashion Kelly and I headed off to the coast with 7 kids to take in the San Diego County Fair!  I look forward to this trip every year and this year was no exception!  Our teen boys were off in seconds into the Fair.  

There is just something about the sights and sounds of this day…



Fried foods, fair rides and all the art exhibits.  Of course us mom's had a little break that we took for ourselves…



What do I love about the Fair?  I love the kids laughing and having a friend to hang with, the time with my good friend and just being in this summertime moment! 



Now summer has officially begun!  What are your favorite summer moments?  I look forward to filling ours with family and great friends!
