On Saturday, the hubbers and I fought massive traffic jams and headed to The Puyallup Fair.  It's one of the top 10 largest fairs in the world, so it's quite the spectacle really.  We visited the barns, ate the beloved Krusty Pups and wandered around the brighly lit rides.

The fair always looks better at night...

 ....doncha think?

ps - We waited about 30 minutes in line for these ( because they are the most delicious scones of all time).

Check back tomorrow, where I'll share some more of our Fair adventure...

{ have you been to a fair? }

    I used to live in the PNW and loved the Puyallup!! I got so excited when I saw your post and the first word that came to mind: SCONES!

    And then your picture...it brought back so many yummy memories. And ones of mad lines, too. Yikes!

    I'm not a huge fan of the fair! I don't like rides.. haha. My boyfriend and I went last night, it was the last night of the fair, and it was closed by the time we got there at 7:30! He was pretty bummed out.

    I'm incredibly jealous that you got to go.

    The end.
