You can do it at a trot, You can do it at a gallop,

You can do it real slow so your heart won't palpitate,
Just don't be late...Do the Puyallup!

In honor of the last day of the Western Washington Fair, or Puyallup Fair to most of us, I thought I would share with you some pictures of our adventure there this year!

A little background for you: The Puyallup Fair is the largest single attraction held annually in WA state. It continually ranks among the ten largest fairs in the world. I believe it is the third largest fair in the U.S.

I was nominated to go on this ride with Ruben. The diamonds are on the back of our seats.
Each car spins, the whole ride spins, and goes up and down. It was SO fun!

Keira didn't want to leave the Giant Slide!

We had a great time at the fair this year. We made it a family affair, with my parents, Christa, and Ruben attending with us. On Mondays, the fair hosts their "Salute to the Military." Which means that you get in free with Military ID. So, after work we all headed out to spend a fun filled night on the town! We went on lots of rides, okay the kids went on lots of rides. Saw cute animals. Ate Krusty Pups (corn dogs), gyros and feta fries, Earthquake burgers (with lots of grilled onions) and fries, BBQ chicken, roasted corn, ice cream, Elephant Ears, Cow Chips (cookies for those of you not in the know), and of course FAIR SCONES! We had a blast, and are considering just taking the kids out of school for the day next year. After all, the fair only comes once a year!!! (If you don't count the Spring Fair that is.)


  1. Looks like so much fun!!!! I can't believe how big the kiddos are getting. They are adorable!!!! I miss you :)

  2. Sooo fun! Gosh was it bracelet night? That slide is mucho ticket when you have to pay for the grown up too. I REALLY wanted to go on the slide but Dave had never been so he got to take Blaine. 20 tickets does not last long...

  3. I so miss the fair and sure hope there is a time I can take my kids to experience it. Looks like you all had fun.
