cake.... the final frontier.

here are 13 of the 50 cupcakes awaiting pickup for the post-wedding party of mr. and mrs. cliff and sara (parkes) muncy. apparently, this is the star trek voyager logo, not to be confused with the other star trek series. (which i may have done with the title of this post, who knows). anyhow... here's the cupcakes....

and my week of caking is officially closed. :)

state fair.

sunday, after church, isaac and i jetted off to raleigh to visit sarahpowers and make a trip to the state fair... here are some shots of our adventures.

sweet motorcycles:

obligatory merry-go-round ride:


first ever ferris wheel ride. (side note: it cost 5 tickets ($5) per person to ride the ferris wheel. for the mathematically challenged, it cost us $15 to ride this ride. boo.):

it's hard to tell, but isaac is enjoying a bit of an elephant ear (fried dough) in this pictures. moments later, he would drop his pants to go to the bathroom. i didn't catch that on camera.

the dragon rollercoaster. isaac has mentioned several times, since the fair, that the dragon rollercoaster scared him.

favorite ride of the evening... i don't know what it's called, but it just goes up and down. all the other kids were screaming and isaac just laughed hysterically.

getting ready to ride with the big kids:

i only took pics of isaac riding rides on my regular camera. will my cellphone, i captured a number of delicious (?) food items and other weird fair type photos...
in case i never get to posting said food items, here's a list of the crap that we ingested:
1. country fried bacon (worst thing i've ever eaten, but sarahpowers referred to it as "alright").
2. italian sausage with peppers and onions.
3. french fries (mostly for isaac).
4. elephant ear with cinnamon sugar and butter.
5. fried snickers bar.

later that night, i would pay dearly for these decisions.

helping (smashing into) dad.

on saturday, derek went out to hack down our ridiculously long lawn and isaac went out to help. and by help, i mean try to ram his toy lawn mower into the real (dangerous) lawn mower. he's obsessed with smashing into things....

please disregard the overgrown garden in the background.

park with luke

a few thursdays ago, isaac and luke and i hung out at the park for a little bit. we had a lot of fun. about 4 minutes after luke left our house, isaac started whining and the fever (that resulted in the previous post's picture of a sick boy) kicked in...

here are shots of the pre-fever fun:

the fair. not the ferret.

went to the fair saturday. (i said that already).

here are some photos from our adventure...

dixie classic fair favorites

on saturday we went to the dixie classic fair. (pictures to come).
isaac kept calling it the "ferret", probably because a few weeks ago, we took care of some animals at a friend's house and isaac loved the ferret.

on the way home, i asked him what his favorite part of the fair was.
he thought for a minute and said, "the tail!".

train names.

isaac has a green (not important to the story) train called "the flying scotsman"... he refers to it as "castle baby". i have no idea why. but, it's funny. the end.
