Washington State Fair

This is my third summer in Washington, but the very fist time I've been able to make it to the state fair. I must admit, it sure put the West Virginia state fair to shame, although that shouldn't have been surprising...

I've always loved going to the fair every summer. A little bit for the fun rides and games, but mostly because of the 4-H and agriculture buildings (what? I'm a little nerdy, okay?) and the food.

The food. Yum!

So here are a few snapshots of our Saturday at the fair!
Prize winning pumpkins
(these were outrageous)
Loved all the beautiful flowers, plants, and vegetable displays
The animal section always makes me cry...becauase I'm weird and also because I think it's so sad they're in cages. 
Alsooo, I'm pregnant and hormonal.
Steven sat in every truck on display and made sure to enter every drawing :)
He's so cute.
pumpkin and wood carving...these were amazing!
I tried to convince Steven that we needed to buy this huge $600 moose.
He wasn't having it.
Fair food...need I say more?
It was such a fun weekend! And although my feet were aching after 7 hours of walking around (there was so much to see!), I would do it again this weekend if for no other reason than to get another one of those yummy fair scones! Or a funnel cake. Or an elephant ear. Or fried butter. Or...you get my point. I'd go again for the food!

Hope you had a great weekend, too!

I so wish I knew when you guys went, I would have loved to have met up with you! We usually go once or twice, and we love it! John loves to do the sling shot and I just love walking around and having fun :D Last year we went and saw the Demolition Derby and the Monster Truck show!
