Twice! I was more than happy to spend the $10 to let the Little Cowboy ride those sheep twice. I would rather have him to that than ride the other rides at The Fair.
And he got to do a few other of the good old fashioned things, too. Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has a kids’ fishing pond. Pioneer Farm in Puyallup has a great display where kids can churn butter, work a hand pump, use all kinds of old tools, and see some really big pumpkins.
There are lots of commercial displays, but the one a lot of the boys, both large and small, gravitated to was a big Volvo Wheel Loader.
A good portion of our local extended family and the Little Cowboy’s Best Buddy also came along. Best Buddy got 4th place in one of his Mutton Bustin’ rides!
And all us moms got our “fix” of Fisher Fair Scones!
It was a long, but very good afternoon. And we lucked out with the weather, too. Only an occasional light sprinkle. I am pretty sure it’s probably a steady shower of rain today.
The rest of this weekend here is spent getting ready for Little Cowboy’s “John Deere Birthday” (his words) next weekend. Paddock Boy has to travel for work this week so I need to take advantage of the help now.
