Can We Just Pretend Summer Isn't Going to End... Please?

So something that I always enjoyed and looked forward to every year during the summer was the County FAIR..
My parents are the best and faithfully made sure to bring us every year.
& Sadly this year Blake and I talked about it, because partially we thought we would have to drive an hour away to get to go to one, and oh yeah since we always end up spending a lot of money when we go we decided we would have to skip it this year.
Then lo and behold the miracle..
Rexburg had a fair RIGHT ACROSS the street from us!
Seriously guys.. I think it took us less time to walk there than it normally does from the parking lot..
So.. of course we decided we would have to go.
& Like always, I am so glad we did.. because of course Blake kept me laughing through the night.
This is his demonstration of how big that 'head' of lettuce is compared to his head!
There are some crazy intense vegetable growers around these parts of the country!

So this is totally one of my favorite parts of the fairs.. I love the birds and the rabbits..
How sweet is this chickens feathers.. if I ever [go crazy... and ] want to have a chicken..
 it will look exactly like this.

I love how cool all of Heavenly Father's creations are & I am always suprised how many beautiful creatures there are here with us on this earth.

& Here is my favorite animal of the night, I wanted to take this baby goat home with us.. so sweet.
Why can't things stay babies for.ev.er?
{yes.. I'm probably going to be one of those moms.. haha}
[& Even though I loved it.. I have to be honest and say I just didn't trust this baby goat to not bite my finger off  which unfortunately made looking at the camera nearly impossible..
As you can see.. this was my best effort]

& Dun dun duh.. This tiny fair even had a couple Alpacas'..
[That's what makes it a legit fair right, when you have llamas?]

After the animals, Blake and I enjoyed the screams and the laughter
&& the lights of the fair for while..
I don't know what it is about rides and fairs but everyone and everything just seem so alive..
I love it.

And then we just relaxed and finished our night
watching & cheering at the rodeo..
& You want to know what I was sitting there thinking all night?
How lucky I am.. and how much I am suprisingly going to miss IDAHO.
[Once it starts snowing I will never admit that I said that..]
But there are so many fun things and people here and
I really have grown to love it..
And this is our last August here...
& Even though I am genuinely excited for our next stage in life..
I am really vowing to make the most of this year and just relish in our life now.
& here is a question for thought..
 What if we vowed to make most of our lives before things were coming to an end and we knew we wouldn't have another chance?
I think our lives probably would be filled with so much more satisfaction and joy.
