Little Farmer Jones























Bless her sweet heart.






130 pictures were taken at the fair on Saturday with my camera. This is one out of three that I appear in. Here I am telling Jackson that a donkey says, "HEE HAW! HEE HAW!"


Big Bird bit a girl's finger only seconds before we took this. That's why my boys are way off to the right.



And then the camera died. It was a great day!

I love the look on Jackson's face in the first pic where he's on the tractor/wagon! :)

Oh Amanda, it looks like it really was hot at the fair. Coming from a Grandma..."Jackson looks so hot, his cheeks are so red. Give him lots of water honey." ;)
Those poor animals they look sooooo hot too with all that fur and then sitting in sawdust.
I do love all your pictures though. Keep em coming.

It's so easy to burn through 100+ pictures in such a fun setting.

Jackson is adorable, poor hot baby. He looks like the perfect little farmer boy.

MamaCass said...

Jackson makes an adorable Farmer Jones. Big bird was kind of creepy. He almost got a hold of Rodney's hat. Glad ya'll had a great second round at the fair.

The Granniss Family said...

How adorable! I love Jackson on that John Deere tractor!

Jenn said...

Don'tcha (is that a real word?) just love the state fair!!! My kids love the whole farm exhibit where they can plant their own food and feed the animals and ride the tractors! They can do that at Grandpa's ranch, but not all in 30 mins! Great pictures (love the hen house!)

jennyhope said...

oh Amanda I love the father son pictures. This is so sweet and fun!!

Sunni at The Flying Mum said...

Those farmer pictures are SOOO cute! I must take Ava there. I hope we don't pass out in the heat. Did you see some baby pigs? I hope so.

Three Fold Cord said...

Love it!! All of it. You and I have something in common, I am never in any pics either. I try and I accomplish a few but other then that it is always the little ones and My man.
It was hot I can tell. Jackson's cheeks are red in almost every pic but it doesn't look like he cared! What a great smile especially on the John Deere!

Kelli in Ohio said...

Are you familiar with the book "Animals of Farmer Jones"? A definite favorite with my kids. And very appropriate for your family!

Don'tcha just love the fact that kids love animals. God made 'um so dadblasted cute, the kids just can't resist. And parents love kids who love animals--we serve an awesome God!!!! Jackson is really so cute and growing like a weed!!

Kecia said...

Hi, I've been "lurking" for a while, finding you from several friends' blogs, but now I have to say...we're going to the state fair next weekend and your pictures got me so excited!!!!! We were looking at info. online (we live in Ark.) and were wondering, do you have to buy food with coupons or do they take cash? My 3 year old is going to love that "farm". :)

That picture of him on the "John Deere" tractor...that'll make your Texas daddy proud. :-)

Leigh Gray said...

Cathy Davis said...

Well now, you just know I'm tickled to pieces that I got to see all these pictures!!!! Thank you for sharing them. I think you might be as bad as I am about not getting in any of the pictures. My kids are going to have kids one day who are going to have kids (etc.) and they are going to wonder what I looked like! I despise having my picture made!!!

I'm a happy little camper right now. Thank you!
Cathy

Shelly said...

The tractor picture! Hehe!

The fair here was lots of fun too (it is apparently the oldest in the nation), but they didn't have corn dogs, or funnel cakes. These New Englanders! Sheesh! lol

Amy T said...

I bet your Momma loved those pics, huh? He looks like he is having a ball! I remember taking my son and nephews through the farm area. So cute!

Jen said...

Ooooooohhhh PLEASE tell me they sang "One Sweet Day"!!

Them Chandlers said...

Looks like fun!! We will HAVE to find time to go!

Those are some great pictures :)

The Preacher's Wife said...

Wow - Texas has awesome Fairs...that petting zoo is the greatest!

North Alabama's animal petting facilities aren't nearly so sanitary...Am I right in thinkin' you saw our low budget field trip pics to the Poop Zoo? :)

Erin said...

Jackson's getting so big! I can't believe it.

Allison said...

Looks like a great time was had by all! Jackson is such a little charmer!

Anonymous said...

he's sooo cute, those eyes and that smile! he will be quite the catch one of these days! :)
question, i have been looking at Rob Bell and Donald Miller (so the emergent church movement?)..
well, i really respect how you articulate a balance of your faith, but reality with today's society.. do you mind sharing your opinion one of these days on that whole movement, or at the very least, those authors?

thanks

willblogforshoes said...

It looks like he had a big time!

Jackie said...

gosh, he is TOO cute. You need to get him one of those miniature John Deere ride on tractors for Christmas- that would complete the look!!

Michelle said...

These are priceless! Its amazing how big Jackson is now! He is a little man!

Lindsee said...

Just precious!

And, my good friend was there on Sat. also, at the fair. She was just about to bust a gut that Boys to Men were there. :)

GRANDMA MITZI said...

Oooh Amanda, I just love your little guy. He is so precious. Whenever you post your pics I just want to grab him, cuddle and kiss those cheeks like only a grandma can.
