What to do for Becca’s Birthday? Rachael opted for Mount Rainier or the Olympic peninsula, but I pointed that we would not have time to drive either place, since I couldn’t start till after Mass and that would be lateish. Those were start-at-the-crack-of-dawn destinations. Well, the Fair was on its last day, and they both LOVE the fair. Me? Not so much. But I put on my happy face, and off we went. My primary concern was actually getting there, as none of us really knew where exactly where Puyallup is, and then where the fair would be once we found Puyallup. But after accidentally taking several scenic (they actually were scenic) routes, we found it, and, mirabile dictu, also found a nice parking place.
One really important Fair activity:
Another: Admiring the flashy colors!
And the truly Weird! There were lots of "collections" on display - some quite bizarre.
And the rides! This one was really scary, rendered its passengers unable to walk without wobbling immediately on exit. It got excellent reviews from my girls. I opted to take pictures from solid ground.
Less scary, but still lotsa fun!
Rachael assured me that this one would not be scary - just fun. She was mistaken. It was hideous. As I was finally tottering off it, the kindly attendant asked me. "Are you okay, hon?" Rachael and Becca thought this was hilarious. If you look closely, you can barely see Rachael waving happily, and me fainting away.
Splendid sunset, and then evening falls on a fun, fun day.
