FAIR-ly fun times...

We made our annual pilgrimage to the Puyallup Fair.  I'm not a super fan (in my opinion, you might as well just light your $$ on fire...), but we really had a great time.  Grandma, Grandpa, Wes, Camille and all her kids joined us this year.  I took surprisingly few pictures for the 12 HOURS we were there, but here are some of them....

The gals on the tilt-o-whirl
 Once it got going, Sam wasn't totally sure she loved it...  But by the end she wanted to ride again
 Brooke and Alix loved the roller coaster
 This isn't a great picture, but I wanted to include it because Erin was really scared, but tried the roller coaster anyway.  She did cry her way through it, but I'm glad she was willing to "make sure" she still doesn't like roller coasters....
 The super swings... This is (weirdly enough) what scared Brooke
 The Tornado - You're spinning in three directions as fast as you can...  It was fun to ride with the girls and all three of the older girls loved the spinny rides.  And I love any ride at all...
 Brooke and I out for a hang gliding ride...
 All five kids checking out the mini-horses
 Petting zoo - Erin really loved this and we had to drag her away
 It's funny to me how many looks we get when we go out as a whole family.  Out here, there aren't too many families with five kids...   
Another great year at the fair!


  1. Brooke and I need to hang out more often. I love any roller coaster or any "scary" ride, but the swings.... hmm... I don't do the swings.

    And 12 hours?!?! Mom of the year award to you again!

  2. Sounds like Brooke, Heather and I all need to hang out together. I can do any spinning, upside down ride, but the swing scares me too!
