Geez, I have been slacking here! I never posted any fair photos. Today I will rectify that 🙂

First up, this sweet photo. It was so adorable how this girl was snuggling with her cow:

A freshly shorn lamb!


Cow milking


Jacob Sheep


A Ze-Donk

Another cow, she posed for us!

A Camel


Piggies! So cute!

Look how big my little Peanut is getting! I think we’ll do this every year we go 🙂

It rained pretty much the entire time we were there. We walked around, saw the animals and the Expo area (all the As-Seen on TV type stuff for sale). We had lunch too, Fair burgers and fries. I then went over to do the spinning demo at the Artist In Action. It was really neat (and a little nerve wrecking) to be ‘on display’. The general public was really cool about watching, asking questions, and seeming interested. I just did some spindling with my CD spindle. It was great but after 3 and half hours, my shoulders were tired! DH and Peanut had wandered off (and came back a couple times with stuffed toys, YAY fair games!) to have some fun while I demo’ed. We then packed it up and headed out. Of course, as par for Washington weather, it cleared up JUST as we were walking to leave:


But we did have a great time, and were happy to get home and off our feet!

    Peanut was totally excited about it, we watched him for about 15minutes. All he did was eat hat 😉

    Hi,Jeanie

    How are you there? Your little peanut is soooo pretty. I’d like her sweet face and beautiful eyes.
    I got your blog from the KnitHelp Forum. You posted that you are in need of some medium sizes of knitting needles. Have you got it now? If not, i hope this site can help you.
