Here we are at the Oregon State Fair! Hooray! I love the fair.
One thing I noticed about the fair this year? A lot of embellished pockets of jeans. Like on this lady.
Matt takes a look at some fish.
The fair is a great place to come if you are thinking about Naturescaping.
A very good quote by Mr. Dickens.
Matt beats the kids to the mini-earth movers. (There are advantages to arriving as the fair opens.)
To begin, we took the Fairlift so we could get a good overview.
The Fairlift gives some insights into the backstage area of the fair. Look at all those prizes!
Were you looking for some sunglasses? If you buy them here you get a free string!

The fair wouldn’t be my first choice for Body Piercing.
But Henna seems the right level of commitment.
At this booth you could check out the things that god cannot do. (We never walked by this booth, so I’m not sure what the three things were.)
Trust them. They have your flag.
A view of the other Fairlift seats. It was early, so they were mostly empty.
What’s happening behind the scenes of the Corndog tent.
To be continued!

OH HOW I LOVE THIS POST!!! I love it so that I had to YELL that at the top of my all caps comment writing lungs!
The fair overview is wonderful. We had hoped to take one of those sky rides on our visits to the fair this year but it was not to be.
The jeans. Too too funny!
I really love that Fairlift. It’s the only time I ever ride a chairlift, since I don’t ski.
Is it inappropriate to note that the lady in the embellished jeans has nice buns? Oh well, it’s true.
Getting a piercing at the fair just doesn’t seem hygienic to me.
I say yes. And I agree, about the buns and the piercing. When I got my belly button pierced, we were camping (there was a trip into town just for piercing because: 90s). It wasn’t good timing. The piercing got infected. Fun times.
