What We Did This Weekend - Spring Fair Edition

My sister is in town. She brought me a new (er) car, one of my Grandma's old oriental rugs, and a bucketful o' fun!

We attended the Spring Fair. This is the first year that I can remember that we had beautiful sunny weather. There was a Daffodil parade (did you all know I live in the Daffodil capital of the universe? Well I do.) There were wild and crazy rides. There was fair food.

It was good.


Maya perfects her "Daffodil Princess" wave.

Those crazy daredevils. What bravery!

Shannon is in the middle, Sophie on the left.

On the hat is a huge, super shiny gold pin. "Jalisco" it shouts to the world!

There is nothing better than this outfit. Check it out, even the boots match.

Pre-oldest-wooden-roller-coaster-on-the-west-coast-and-we-live-in-a-really-rainy/woodrotting-environment-yikes ride.

My house tends to attract small children by the droves. We had a bbq last night for, oh, the entire neighborhood. Then we played frisbee in the dark with my lighted frisbee. I have no idea why all these kids come over.....

And, stay tuned for some super exciting news!!!!!

I love daffodils - and that guy's outfit... ohmy.

It looks like you had a super fun day, there's nothing like fairs and shows (even if people do get a bit obsessed about cows hehhe) is there?

Daffodil capital of the universe? Of course we knew that... it's all the rain y'see...

And RIP Minty. Though I seem to remember saying that once before in the comments - did he/she ever come back to life?
