Wild Flower Festival 2009...

So, we decided to test the waters with Cooper's patience and head out to the Wild Flower Festival this weekend. We went on Sunday, and it was a gorgeous day! Me, Richard, Cooper, Tatum, and my mom headed out. We got there right when they opened, hoping the crowds would not be too big and let Tatum get started in the Kids Area! She had a blast. We convinced her to do the rock climbing wall, she cried the whole time in line, then when it was her turn, climbed almost like she was a pro. She made it half way up the big wall, then her foot slipped, she was still holding on with her hands, but she got nervous and decided she was done. She did great! She got to dig for worms, toss some balls, and make a beaded necklace. She did the Obstacle Course Bounce house several times, then we headed off to grab a bite to eat. "Fair food" is always the best!! We ate, Cooper was patient, then it was his turn. So, I nursed him in a chair under a blanket for the first time, and he did great! He was so good the whole day. He would get a little fussy if we stayed in one place for too long. He wanted the stroller in motion! He was so cute in his little Peace hat and outfit. Everyone around thought he was adorable. Tatum was Miss Accessory yesterday. She was wearing her necklace she made, bought a silver ring with the money Papaw sent with her, and then wanted some new sunglasses. She was really well behaved yesterday! I love it when I have well behaved kids! Wow, that is so weird to say "kids." I have 2 now! Still can't believe it! Cooper got a cute Tye-Dye Beanie that Tatum picked out for him, with his part of Papaw money. Funny, girls always seem to get the majority of the money. It was not split down the middle, but whatever, girls need more right!!?! We walked by a booth and saw Miss Texas. Richard wanted to get Cooper's picture taken with her. She was really sweet and took one with Tatum and Cooper, then when Richard went to take Cooper back from her, she asked if she could keep holding him for a minute. Richard said, "he's already the ladies man!!" It was a fun day out for our first real outing with Cooper. I think he is going to be a trooper like Tatum was at that age. We can drag them around anywhere, and they just adjust!!! What awesome kids I have!!!
