Our Itinerary for the Rest of the Season

Hello on this beautiful sunny day! Three days in a row ~ maybe summer is finally here. I sure hope so.

Thank you all for your comments. Sorry about the size problem last time. I didn't realize I had changed the size. Regarding the color - I will use only dark colors from now on. As always I enjoy hearing from you.

I finally got our itinerary for the rest of the carnival season. We are definitely going to be busy...

Monday, July 12 we jump (move) to Olympia for Lakefair. The fair runs from July 14 to 18. Wednesday the special at the carnival is 7 rides or games, in any combination, for $15. This works out to be about half price for each ride. Thursday is wrist band day, you can ride as many rides as you want for as many times as you want for $25. Lakefair is right on the capital grounds on a grassy knoll by the lake.

Monday, July 19 we jump to Portland, OR. The bone yard will be at the Funtastic Shows Portland office on SE 108th Avenue. We have heard we are doing a two day show somewhere in Portland but we do not have the details yet.

Monday, July 26 we jump to Hillsboro, OR for the Washington County Fair. The fair runs from July 29 to Aug. 1.

Monday, August 2 we head back to Washington. We will be in Longview for the Cowlitz County Fair. It runs from August 5 to 8.

Monday, August 9 we jump to Graham, WA for the Pierce County Fair. It runs from August 12 to 15.

Monday, August 16 we jump to Eugene, OR for the Lane County Fair. The fair starts on Wednesday, August 18 and goes through August 22. This will be the hardest jump for us. They call it a circus jump as we work on Sunday, the 15th, tear down the night of the 15th/morning of the 16th and then have to get right on the road to drive the 7 hours to Eugene, OR. Set up will begin Monday evening and then start up again early on Tuesday morning the 17th. All this so we can be ready to open on Wednesday, August 18. We would really appreciate your prayers for those few days.

Monday, August 23 we jump to Salem, OR for the Oregon State Fair. The fair runs from August 27th through Labor Day Monday, September 6th.

Tuesday, September 7 we make the jump back to Washington and head for Puyallup for the Western WA State Fair. It runs from September 10 to 26.

We have been told that tear down from the Puyallup begins on Monday, September 27 and takes about a week or so. Our plan after we are done at Puyallup is to get on the road once more and head to Lewiston, ID. We plan on taking two days to get there and spend a couple of weeks with Brandon, Danalyn, Max & Christopher. After our time in Lewiston we will be returning to Blaine, WA.

Right now we don't know what our winter plans will be. Ron is wondering if we can get a job selling Christmas trees. We really don't know what we will be doing.

Answers to questions & comments ~~ Thank you for your comments and suggestions. No, I am not offended by them and I am happy to make changes when I can.

Thank you all for your continued prayers for us as well as Rick & Theresa. We found out yesterday that Rick took Theresa to the Oregon Coast for a few days rest and relaxation before she begins her chemo treatment next week. The doctor decided she needed one more week of recovery before starting the next phase of her treatment. As I get word I will continue to update you all.

We continue to thank the Lord for his provisions as we travel on this new journey of carnival life.

As always thanks for reading and sharing in our lives.
