The Fair!

We heard that the Puyallup Fair was one of the biggest fairs around, and let's face it, Jay and I cannot not turn down a fair.  We rode the bus there.  What could have been a 45 minute drive turned in to a 3 hour bus adventure!  It wasn't so bad.  We familiarized ourselves with the bus system and had some good laughs along the way.  The fair was fun, but it's no Great State Fair of Oklahoma.  Really, we love the Oklahoma fair.  Here are a few pictures of our day!

What we do on rainy days...

We get bored and paint our faces!


Silly kitty!


The end.

Le grand tour!

Here is our fancy apartment....all 800 square feet of it!

The living room!

The other half of the living room!

The dining room!

Bedroom shelf & closet.  We surprisingly have a ton of closet space!

Our bedroom...complete with a napping Ryder!


View from the balcony! Pretty pretty mountains!

It's not big, but we actually love it alot.  It's very cozy, and I've had fun decorating the new place.  I'm in the process of making curtains that help to brighten the rooms up a bit.  They are adorable so far!

I am going to attempt to show you a little of our life in Seattle!

                                                                  We climb trees!

We walk everywhere.

We hang out at the beach.

We gather rocks.

We visit the big city!

and most importantly, we play on the playground!

We have adjusted quite well to life in the city.  I love it even more than I thought I would! 

I'm meeting several girls from school tomorrow to "ride the ducks", and I'm super excited to get to know the girls I'll be spending the next two years with.  Everyone seems so friendly so far!  Will post more adventures soon!
