We went somewhere today~

~but only for a few hours.  Today was free admission before noon day at the Fair!   We came by there last night on the way back from Enumclaw, where we'd gone to celebrate the birthday of one of Bob's sons-in-law.   It was all lit up and so inviting....but not open to the public yet.  But today it was...so we went to the local mall, parked the car and hopped on a bus that for $3 took us directly to the Fair grounds.  No parking hassels and no paying $10 to park and walk for blocks to get to the gate.

We didn't do much.....just kind of wandered around. Had some lunch and then we were back on the bus & leaving the Fair grounds at 3:30pm.  I needed to be home so I could take my darling grand daughter to an appointment late this afternoon. 

But, I have two discount admission tickets and we'll go again next week.  It was really crowded, with thousands taking advantage of the "free admission before noon on the first day."   After we go again, I'll share all my pictures.  But for now here are two....that I can't wait to show you. 

Aren't they cute?   There's a total of 8 piglets....There was another sow in the adjoining pen who is due next week.  She was all stretched out, sound asleep but her belly was moving like the waves on an ocean. 

this little guy was starting to wake up~truly a face only a mother could love.

Awww...those are some cute!  I reckon God made babies cute for a reason.  That way we'd all love them to bits and want to care for them!

Aww baby piglets are sooo cute! I cant wait for the fair here. It will be here Oct 2 through the 12th. I dont blame you for going back later, I hate the crowds myself. We go during the week to avoid the crowds that swarm on the weekend. Hugs, Kelly

Oh so cute. I am so excited my sister got me the tickets to Portland for the 17th of this month and I just can't stop smiling over the thought of seeing everyone. I hate the idea of the long flight but the outcome will be worth it.....love, Sandi

I think piglets are cute, always have, and they're actually smarter than most animals, especially horses.
