Picture Perfect Weekly #3 {The South Florida Fair Edition}

January 19, 2013

I love to share photos and I love Instagram. I was one happy little blogger when Instagram became available on Android devices. I jumped, no leaped, on that particular social media bandwagon and have developed a love affair/addiction with it. That has not changed with the beginning of the new year. 2013 here I come!

Won’t you please join me once a week by sharing your favorite pictures from your phone and Instagram?

It’s easy – share just one or many of your favorite shots from the week with a small description and link up your post.

Please, paste the badge into your post or sidebar.

You can find me on Facebook, Twitter and of course, Instagram!

I look forward to seeing your treasured moments!!!

This week I’m sharing all the Instagram pics I took at the South Florida Fair yesterday. We look forward to it every year and can’t wait for January to get here. Ever since the boy was little we’ve gone every year and haven’t missed one in ages. It’s our thing.

This year we went with friends of ours. Their little girl is friends with our little one and they are the same age. The two of them had a blast and wanted to go on ALL the kiddie rides! Middle had her best friend with her and the boy his. The girls went off with our friend’s hubby to ride the big kid rides and the boys went off on their own for the first time ever. Hubby was in constant phone contact with the boy, so that I didn’t worry too much. (He’s growing up too fast for my liking!)

It was so much fun, from the BBQ brisket hubby had to have, the funnel cake for us girls, to the live stock (cute little calves, anyone?) and of course the midway! We ended up being there for 7 1/2 hours and didn’t get home until midnight after all the drop-offs were done. Today, we all slept late, stayed home for the most part andΒ reveledΒ in the dreary weather perfect for hot tea and relaxation.

    I love seeing your photos. One of these days, I’m gonna have to get on your meme…I take a million a pics too! LOL. But it’s been terribly busy around my place that I’ve hardly had the time to blog or comment on anyone else’s blog. Thank you, though, for visiting mine. I know you’ve been at my poetry blog too lately. Thanks for keeping me company. πŸ™‚
