Jordan and Caleb

We went the Farmer's Market by the Puyallup Library with Talitha last weekend and we ran into Jordan MacDonald. He has a new business selling Philly Cheese Steaks sandwiches. We got two and split them between the four of us and boy were they good. I think he's going to do well.

Caleb made the Dean's list at Pierce College. Way to go Caleb. He's doing well at college classes even though he's only a Junior in High School.
On an unfortunate note, I hurt my big toe the other day and it swelled way up and turned dark blue and hurts and I haven't been able to wear a shoe on that foot ever since. I was turning out the lights for the evening and stepped on the end of a cord that someone left out in the hall, which they shouldn't have, nope, and they do leave stuff laying out all the time, and sooner or later someone was bound to get hurt. I shifted my weight off that foot and fell down and jammed the big toe on the other food really bad. Oh well, it only hurts when I walk.

Monster Truck Rally

Jacquelyn and I went to the Spring Fair in Puyallup. We actually bought tickets to the Monster Truck Rally and free admission to the fair came with it.

Just the two of us went, Caleb didn't want to come along. We spent several hours touring around looking at things. Jacquelyn liked looking at the Pavilion displays mostly. I like looking at the farm animals.



We saw a lumberjack contest which was fun to watch. This is a log rolling contest. The one in the red shirt won.


Jacquelyn liked the looks of these green house starter boxes and is planning to have Relief Society make some.



Finally it was time for the Monster Truck Rally. This truck was named Bounty Hunter and it ended up winning the truck race contest.





I liked the Outlaw best and it came in second.



They would race around a track two at a time and have to smash or jump over ordinary cars along the way.



This truck was named Double Trouble and it almost tipped over backwards.



It actually got kind of repetitious. After all, you can only watch so many cars getting smashed and crushed before you start to lose interest. Here's a video so you can watch part of a race.
