State Fair 2013 - Fourth Time Out

Evening visit - some mighty fine pie, a tour through Pioneer Square before it gets torn down, and the realization of a goal that Wynn had worked toward all year:

Getting Wynn and me in the mood for Pumpkin Pie Season!



We watched the glass-blowing demonstration for about 10 minutes - Wynn was really interested in how it was done
 











Ever since last year's Fair, Wynn has said she wanted to save up her own money so she could buy a strawberry smoothie from this stand. She was very good about putting money aside as she earned it during the year, and was SO happy to pull out $5 to pay tonight.

They are really the best smoothie at the Fair, our girl knows quality.
That's the look of satisfaction from a job well done!

State Fair 2013 - Second Time Out

Hotter than blazes today, but I had the day off so Wynn and I headed over at breakfast time:
Early morning and already over 90 degrees - but no crowds


Had never tried the croissant place next to French Meadow before - wow, these were really good!




The gazebo between the Food and Agriculture buildings has a ceiling fan and catches some cross-breeze - we hung out there for a while
 


How do ya like them apples?
