Do the Puyallup!

We went to the fair on Saturday and of course made time for our favorite event.
Mutton Bustin! For those of you unfamiliar with this, it is one of the best all time fair activities. They take 3-6 year old kids, put a helmet on them, and put them on the back of a sheep. They open the gate and the kid hangs on for dear life as the sheep goes charging down the field. The goal is to hang on for 6 sec. The winner takes away a belt buckle!

Before the main event got started, Buster the sheep came out to entertain the crowd. He did a pretty good job!

The Puyallup fair is probably the best state fair I've ever been to. If you ever come our way during September, we'll take you! Then you can try Fischer Scones, Earthquake burgers, and of course visit piglet palace!

Okay, but for some reason I just can't see Parker doing that. I can't see myself allowing him to. Halle either, for that matter. I can't believe anyone would stick a 3 to 6 year old out there with the chance of getting trampled by a sheep?!?!? I'm glad you guys had such a great time. Texarkana's fairs where never quite that entertaining!!!
