You know its hard to believe that it has been 7 years since 9-11. Its very hard to describe that day. So many emotions, anger, sadness, grief, shock, fear, numbness, pride.
On that day it just so happens that our County Fair was going on. I say "our" even though I don't live in that county anymore. I grew up in that county and it will always be "my" fair. We had planned on going to The Fair that evening. Now we asked ourselves should we go? Of course we would go! We were not going to let whoever did this to our Country keep us in fear and locked in our homes.
It was such an odd feeling though. Being there, knowing everything that was going on. You try to move on and keep going, not wanting the kids to know that things would never really be the same. They were to young to really understand.
Little Logan was about 1 1/2 at the time. He was so sweet. Look at those cheeks.
Here he is riding the Merry-go-Round
Jessie was 11, boy how time fly's and how they grow up.
Now these next pictures, are very special. Not that the others weren't, but little did we know that we would loose one of these precious babies, just a year and a half later.

Memories like these are what we need to treasure. We never know what might happen from day to day.
Now go hug your kids.
Sorry for the not so lighthearted post, these are just my memories of that day.
