On the Midway

Carrie needed to (wo)man a table at the Puyallup Fair on Friday, so I tagged along as her textbook-reading non-volunteer.  It was pretty great. 

Here we are at the Grange exhibits.  Pretty cool!

Carrie doesn't quite measure a carrot.

Washington: Canning Liberty for Freedom

Carrie!  Don't get squashed!  HAHAHAHAHA!

I love these things!

Next, we checked out my favorite part, the hobby hall.  There were paintings, dollhouses, Leggo sculptures, but I couldn't get enough of the collections

My Little Pony heaven

Interesting that the boy ponies resemble the Village People

Carrie approves...before realizing it was new Star Wars

Harry Potter Leggo mini-figures


Cats rule!

And pandas drool.

And then we made it to the Midway, where we finally realized why our parents never let us ride too many rides at the are they expensive. and not nearly long enough for the price.  We rode 2 rides.  And had another realization, our inner ear capabilities aren't nearly what they used to be.

Of late, there seems to be a general ennui exuding from everyone.  Trapped in this never-ending rut of the same-old, same-old.  Maybe it was last night's adrenalin-inducing, and pocket-draining rides that convinced Carrie and I to venture out on at least one new adventure a month.  It doesn't have to be pricey, it doesn't even have to cost any money, it just has to be something new... and out of the house...and adrenalin-inducing. How about the opera?  Kayak carol singing?  Just the beginning.
