Do The Puyallup!

The Puyallup fair that is, for those of you not aware of the fair lingo. One of the things I missed most about Washington when were in Georgia was the Puyallup fair. It's been a yearly tradition since I was a kid. This is the biggest, badest fair around. So yesterday was Monday Madness at the fair which means all the rides were a dollar. Normally they're between 3 and 5 dollars EACH! So we took the kids and rode the rides for about 6 hours. Never in the history of my fair going has this been possible, we would have to ride like 3 rides and that was it. It was so much fun to watch my children smile for hours, they were so excited! I loved to watch the other parents standing around, watching they're kids ride rides. The smiles on the parents faces were as big as the kids. My kids couldn't remember ever being to a fair which suprised me. We took them to a little po dunk one in Georgia which obvioulsy wasn't very memorable. So this was a new experience for them. I hope that the memories are burned into their minds the way they are for me, full of joy and wonder. Enjoy the pictures...I did!

How fun! We never went to the fair because I am married the #1 Fair Hater. Looking at your pictures made me wish we would have gone more often. Glad you were able to enjoy the day :)

Sorry Tasha, they only do it once. You'll have to plan for it next year. It's totally worth it!
