The Washington State Fair
It has been an annual tradition to attend the Washington State Fair for as long as I can remember. First with my parents, then with my friends and now with my own little family. At the fair, there are so many things to see, do and eat. This year, the thing which captivated my attention the most was an adorable little boy in a pair of denim overalls. Jasper was such a joy to watch as he "carefully" petted baby animals, danced every time he heard music and rode his very first ride all by himself. There are endless pros to being tall (so I am told) and being able to ride all the rides in the little kid area is definitely one of them.
We started our morning at the fair with a scone, went home mid day so Jasper could nap and then ended the evening with an ice cream cone. All, in all, not a bad way to spend a Saturday.

Had this little tractor been for sale, we probably would have bought it on the spot. When it comes to Jasper we are totally suckers like that!
It was fun to check out the fair during the day and then again that night, it was a totally different vibe.
There was baby EVERYTHING. Baby pigs, baby chicks etc.

It was so fun being able to take Jasper on some rides. He is big enough he can ride all the tame ones, which meant a lot of spinning in a circle and laughing out loud. Being a parent is the best! I know I will look back at this time in my life as the most exhausting, but the most exhilarating. I am grateful every. single. day. for this little guy. Whether it be the elderly lady at church or the carnival worker at the fait, he is a light to everyone he meets!
