Cooper stayed all night with us last night after the fair and I had to snap this picture this morning because when the boys woke up and came down stairs they just plopped down on the couch and started watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with Camryn... I really think they were into it too!LOL Well, around 3pm "Find My iPhone" showed that Grant's phone was back at the fairgrouds... no one ever called but I went to the fair board office anyway and it was there!  Thank goodness!!! This evening Kennedy enjoyed another evening at the fair with her friend Bella!

210/365 Meet Cinnamon


Last night at the fair Kennedy won a bunny while playing a game... she named him Cinnamon.  So today we ran around town buying supplies and googling how to take care a rabbit! lol  I think we have him taken care of for now.  We went back to the fair to ride this evening.  After Grant rode 2 rides he realized his phone was missing.  Thanks to the "Find My iPhone" app we were able to put  it in Lock Mode and track it... we tracked it all over the fair grounds, to the parking lot, then out 160 almost to Vinton when they finally called us.  Grant talked to him and the guy said he would take it back to the Fair Board Office when he could get there tomorrow....hoping that will happen!
