The Puyallup Fair opened yesterday. Three weeks of rides, scones and oh, the traffic. Don't get me wrong, I love the fair. Once. Maybe twice a year. My husband, on the other hand, could go every day. Maybe twice a day.
On opening day, you can follow a cattle drive parade into the fair for free before noon. Luke and I took advantage of their generosity, wishing it extended to ride tickets. We hit the train, the track cars (three times) and the canoes. He loved the rides, I loved watching him love them. I also loved Purell.
The fair's theme this year is, "The Big Fantastic". I like it, but Luke would like to amend it to read, "The Fair Would Be Even More Fantastic if You Eliminated the Marching Bands".
