OK, so the Puyallup Spring Fair was a couple weekends ago, and we decided it was an excellent opportunity to take a break from the kitchen renovation warzone and relax a little bit.  Simultaneously, we managed to cross number 28 off the list!  The pictures are bad because we were busy enjoying the moment (translation: canoodling).  Goofy face of delight:
We caught some of the sunset:

This was actually the last part of the delightful spring fair, we had already enjoyed Mutton Bustin', a car show, a junior rodeo, an elephant ear, and the MOST adorable thing I have ever seen: piglets racing for an Oreo cookie.  (Yeah, they race in heats of four piglets at a time and yes, it is completely wonderful.  They also have a tiny piglet trained to launch into a tank of water and swim for an Oreo?  Aaaadorable.  Did you know that piglets wag their tails when happy like a dog?  True story.)  So thanks Spring Fair, we'll see you next year for sure!


  1. Cuties!! And what a great view too :) Did you get a mani/pedi for May?
