The Big E
aka the Eastern States Exposition, started this past weekend, (left to right in the photo is Me, Amber, Dave, and Will)the four of us went up for a day trip. It was a blast
...and yes it is just like the puyallip! We saw all kinds of vendors selling a bazillion different things. I bought a new set of sheets because I love sheets! We all learned magic! We went on all kinds of rides! Dave played the carnival games and won me a gigantic elephant, named Elle, and he won Amber a teddy bear. We rode on a real elephant named Orla, she was 38 years old, and her skin was rough, it was weird, b/c as you can see in the photo, I was sitting on the front of the elephant, and my legs are so long that Orla's ears kept flitting past my foot...it was weird! But it does go on the list of the coolest things that I have ever done! I rode an elephant!
There was also a part of the fair grounds that had old police cars and then officers standing about, so we played in the police cars for a little bit. There was a police dog there that made me cry! She reminded me of home! I miss the dogs!! But it was good to love on a blood hound! Basically the day was a great success! Next weekend we have planned a trip to NYC! Which should be fun as well!
