Because of the strike and no school we decide to do a couple extra things before I would leave again for Missoula (6 more weeks) and the kids would have to get back in the classroom. Aunties Dianne and Amanda were up from Eugene for the week and staying at the Sound House so we took a little day trip to visit with them. When we got there they had gone to a meeting so we had a little R&R by throwing rocks, digging in the sand, checking out the crabs and a little bit of modeling.
The next day we headed to the Washington State Fair. Boy am I a fair rookie - if you don't know what you're doing, and I didn't, you can spend way too much money at these places. I think I'm just a little wiser from our experience and I now know how to handle this for the next time. I also found out that I get sick on rides. It wasn't like that a few years ago, must be something about getting older, or at least that's what I'm blaming it on.
