Lon remembered this from last year. He really wanted to make sure we knew he wanted to ride a tractor. He had lots of fun! We put his name in for the drawing of a new pedal tractor. Everyone think good thoughts!
Mommy got an onion burger and some onion rings. Lon liked them. Walla Walla Sweet Onion Rings. Yummy! It was starting to rain. Not a light drizzle, but real rain. No, we did not go home at this point.
We went to the petting zoo. On the way into the animal section, they have a place to help kids learn where food really comes from. The child picks up a basket, gets a fake egg from under a fabric chicken, "picks" an apple off the tree, milks a cow, then digs up a potato, and then sorts his basket (this *milk* stays in the bucket under the *cow*) into other baskets to go to the store. This is all Lon wanted to do for the longest time.
The animal part of the petting zoo. They moved the animals into their resting pens, as it was under a tin roof. I like this shot, reminds me of my sister's shirt getting eaten at the Alabama State Fair. Lon only got sniffed, his Curious George shirt is still intact.
Back to picking and sorting. He really did have alot of fun with that. Lon had a great time at the Evergreen State Fair.
It was a really fun weekend for all of us!

We got the stroller to walk into town (it was not far). Lon got a doughnut, it was yummy. We looked at the community art show. There were some pretty nice things! Not much in fabric, alot of beads, and glass. We did not see anything we really wanted to take home, with the exception of a wooden lighthouse for the end of the driveway, but it was way too big to fit in the car. (Well, I did have a fleeting thought of leaving the stroller or having it in Lon's lap, but it was only a fleeting thought)
After making the boys look at every single art booth, twice, we went to the beach. Lon was thrilled. We were there for over four hours. It was in the middle 60s with a breeze. Lon got some sun, Daddy got sunburned and even though Mommy forgot sunscreen on everyone, Mom still has no color.
This bucket of rocks is heavy. I think Lon will have a serious interest in geology. Rocks are very fun, and we had to take some home. Mommy was collecting rocks on the beach too. Lon found a discarded pringles can, and we filled that up with pretty little rocks.
We went to the Original House of Pizza for dinner. It was not bad pizza. Lon had fun. (Mommy and Daddy are looking forward to Illianos pizza in CT) Lon did not stay up to watch the 'lympics. He was very tired.
I am bringing you a rock Mom! Did you see the waves almost catch me? Lon was not so sure that going back home was a good idea. He wanted to stay at the beach. Once we told him he had 5 minutes left, he was good. We had fun in Westport. The main thing is that Lon got to spend time at the beach.
