Wyatt::9 Years Old

Wyatt's birthday always creeps up on me since it follows Brendan's so closely but so much changes between the two birthdays. Brendan's is still in the height of summer and Wyatt's is well after the start of the school year. Brendan is also much more vocal about his upcoming birthday and all the things he may want or want to do. Wyatt is less so and I feel less pressure for his birthday. For these reasons it feels like Brendan's birthday has been made a bigger deal than Wyatt's for several years in a row. I know it is impossible to do everything equal for each kid, but I really wanted to make sure Wyatt felt special this year (without too much pressure on myself....I really don't like throwing huge kid, invite all your friends, parties).
Similarly to Brendan, we decided to do something special for his actual birthday, just us and then have an extended family birthday party a few days later.  We had made secret plans but the day before got offered some free tickets to the WA State Fair. We decided to do that instead.

The fair was a total blast. We didn't get up there until about 2 and we stayed until 10:00pm when they closed. We could have stayed the whole day there was so much to do. It's been a while since we've been to a fair and all 4 kids had sooo much fun going on the scariest rides they were tall enough to ride!

Looks like everyone had fun, but I can't believe fishing did not occur.
