The Wicked Witch of the West...

Don't you just love crazy tights? I wish I could wear stripes on my legs and look that great! :)

Emma at the park...





We have a favorite park in Issaquah. It's only a 10 minute walk from our new house, and it's right behind the old train depot. They've just put in all new toys, and there's a toddler area with little trains to play on. When we can distract Emma from the swings, she actually has a good time on the trains. But only if she can't see the swings. She's a swing addict!

The Puyallup Fair




Watching the horse show


Emma with the Prize Winning Chickens


Shane & Emma in the Cow Barn


Yesterday we went down to the fair in good 'ole Puyallup. I heard once (from a comedian) that if you're ever feeling bad about yourself, you should just go to the fair and look around. Sad, but true! Actually, we had a great time visiting all the animals, Emma was so excited to see everything. She was thrilled--especially to see a Zebra. Plus, Shane couldn't resist and bought her a little John Deere tractor toy with a little piggy to haul in the back. She was thrilled and clutched the piggy in her hand for the rest of the day. We drove down with Grandma & Grandpa Reckling. It was so fun to spend the day with them.

So, Emma went the whole day without a nap, and here is what she was like around 6:00 while we were eating dinner. She had become delirious. I warn you, there might be flying food in the video. :) video

At the hatchery...


Mom and Dad came and visited tonight, and we walked over to see the fish at the hatchery. The Salmon were jumping all over, there were hundreds of them! It was quite entertaining. I'll post a video of them. We watched for 15 minutes, and I actually caught one on camera when it made it up the ladder, the only one! It was fun...
