In Living Color {Tacoma Family Photography}

One of my most adventurous families called me the other day and wondered if I wanted to meet them at the Puyallup Fair for a {very colorful} photo shoot.  How could I pass that up?



One of the problems of coming to the fair as a little guy is that there are not many rides you can get on.  Elliot was just a little too short for most rides, but when we did find one he could climb on, he had a ton of fun!


Of course, who needs rides when there are all sorts of other great attractions at the Fair....like this musical contraption.  Who doesn't want to make a ton of noise while hitting things with a stick?




There are always animals to see...and kiss!!  (Elliot is making the sign for "bird" in the picture on the right!)


Hands to wash....


...and boots to put on, because.....


....THERE ARE PUDDLES TO JUMP IN!!  


And would any trip to the Fair be complete without food?  We decided to forgo the deep fried butter and opted for corn instead.  I think it was a hit!



He liked the corn so much, he was not about to give it up....not even to walk through puddles!



This was also Elliot's first taste of cotton candy.  He wasn't sure what to do with it at first and thought he didn't like it.  But he caught on quickly...and even still shared some with his mom!



Thank you Backmans!!  I always have a great time with you and I love that you are always up for some sort of craziness!!
