This Weekend, I...v.9.24.12

Here's to Syndal and Sarah for a new Monday link-up! And here we go....

This weekend, I went to the Puyallup Fair with my sweetheart, and he surprised me by wearing jeans! This might not seem all that exciting, but it's a big deal when he wears anything but his zip-off Columbia convertible pants. When he retired four years ago, we bought him a pair for hiking. They were so comfortable he bought two or three more pairs, and now he wears them year-round. So it's a pretty big deal if he wears anything else!

I think he looks skinny in jeans!

This weekend, I almost didn't make it into the Puyallup Fair. Who knew they had a height requirement? Well, not really. After he took the picture, my husband commented on how short I am. Yeah, I've been tall all along?

Must be THIS tall to enter!

This weekend, I noticed my husband look longingly at that carnival ride that FLINGS you up in the air on a huge bungy corded swing thingy. He mentioned that he wished our daughter was there to go on the ride with him. Me, too!

Looks like fun...NOT!

This weekend, I went to a concert at the fair. We saw Andy Grammer, Mat Kearney and Train. What a great show! We had wonderful seats, too. We enjoyed both opening acts immensely, and Train put on a fantastic concert. At the end of the evening, Pat Monahan (lead singer for Train) called a nine- or ten-year-old girl to the stage after he noticed her singing along to all of the songs. (Apparently, he does this at every show.) He presented the little girl with a signed guitar, and encouraged her to learn to play and perform, and then to pass her love of music along to someone else. What a great idea, and a great way to end the show!

Loved the light show at the Train concert

Hope your weekend was full of fun activities, too!



  1. Train! Love me some Mat Kearney, too.

    Looks like a blast! Also, guess who gets to see you soon?! Yay yay yay!

  2. Wondering if Wally tore his repaired miniscus watching the last play of the Seahawks game!
    Love your Puyallup pics.

  3. eek I would NOT go on that slingshot "ride" thing either! I don't think it's healthy to be that terrified.

  4. See.... I do read your blogs.
    Love ya
