picture post

m'boy had himself a jam-packed weekend last time around. we went and saw Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow friday night, then he had a soccer game (pics below, in the previous two posts) saturday morning, then a sleepover saturday night (just realized i didn't take any pictures of that at all), then the puyallup fair sunday.

seems a shame to post all the rest of the stuff from the last couple weeks and leave out the fair, so here goes, with apologies to those with slower connections.

Loren with some prizes he won at one of his favorite games....he just cleaned up here.

he won the hat on the second dart thrown in the first game he played- then he won the lamp, duck and dog the second time playing his second game.

three minutes later he was standing in line waiting to go on the Enterprise, where you stick to the wall- one of his favorites.

we were walking back from the car after stashing his loot and we detoured to 7-11 to get batteries for the camera. new batteries? better take a picture.

this is a big pumpkin carved by some guy with some skills. sucks to be Russ.

me and m'boy sittin' down havin' some food.

my digital camera has a delay, so you have to try to time it right when something quick happens- i got this one just right on the third try.

waiting for another of his fave rides (the tornado) to start.

the traditional ferris wheel picture- this is a must-have in my book.

one i took of both of us on the ferris wheel- often there's someone else to take these shots, this year it was just him and me.

southerly view from the ferris wheel.

something must have smelled bad- prob'ly cigarette smoke.

m'boy getting his feet vibrated but good right before we left the fairgrounds.

full size pics are all in the online album

if anyone's interested in some video of the fair, feel free to check out these:

the rest of these are all pretty dark- you might need to turn the brightness up on your monitor to see 'em

that's it- PEACE OUT / wavers
