Puyallup Fair

Me, Lori and Erika in front of some of the pumpkins on display:
Monday we went to the Puyallup Fair. Lori went with Erika, Brian, the kids and me. First stop was to get the famous scones which are raspberry-filled and not as dry as regular scones. They were delish!
The queen bee was marked with a white spot on her back to help the kids find her:
There were a ton of exhibits and vendor booths to peruse, as well as animals to see and pet. The kids got to try milking a cow on a plastic cow that had water in it's udders instead of milk. The other day Rebecca said she'd like to water a cow, but I had to explain to her that it was called milking and that watering meant you put a hose over the animal or you give it a drink.

The kids really enjoyed themselves on all the rides they go to go on.
Brian took Kaylen on a special trip on the carousel:

I had to take a picture of one ride that was available (for adults) at the fair. It is a two-seated open contraption that is attached to cords and they fling this chair up and down. It looked insane and I don't think I'd ever catch myself on it!

The last official ride (excluding the last one on the carousel) before looking at more animals at the fair was the huge slide. The Steip Family raced down and had a good time.

Petting the animals was a real treat!
I think the highlight for everyone was the dairy room where you could purchase delicious soft serve ice cream and watch a cow being milked while you enjoyed your ice cream! They also had chocolate milk samples that tasted like Wendy's Frostees. Yum!

At the end of the day we stopped at the hair cutting area, where my niece Amanda (Lori's daughter) was working to cut hair. Sebastian got his hair cut and was excited to have his cousin do it! You can't tell by the picture because he was being a good boy and concentrating on staying still. :-)
