It Will Always Be The Puyallup Fair to Me

Thursday, September 11th, 2014 at 6:35pm. 17 Views, 0 Comments.

I will probably always call it the Puyallup Fair, and I will probably always have that cute little Puyallup Fair jingle in my head every time I think of the fair; You can do it at a trot, You can do it at a gallop, You can do it real slow so your heart won’t palpitate….do the Puyallup. The name has changed but the Washington State Fair remains the same in every other way. It is exactly how I remember it from my childhood days. What good memories with my family when I was a child and now I get to keep the tradition alive with my own littles. My dad used to pull us out of school and take us every year and it was always a special treat for our family. These days all the kids in the Puyallup School District have a day especially set aside for them to go and

New and Improved Playground at Pioneer Park in Downtown Puyallup

Monday, August 4th, 2014 at 5:55pm. 49 Views, 0 Comments.

Holy smokes today was a H O T one! I would have loved to spend the day splashing around at a nearby lake but, I was low on free time. I was however able to escape for a couple of hours of fun. I decided to check out the new playground I have been hearing about at Pioneer Park, I figured we could splash around in the wading pool to cool down if we got to hot. The new playground structure that was installed replaced the old one that had been there since 1992.  And WOW the new park is fantastic! It has two play structures. One geared for smaller children and the other for bigger kids. It was pretty busy today and the kids were having a blast on the SUPER big slides and the various climbing features and tree houses. As cool as the play structure is there is

When you live your whole life in the Pacific Northwest it is a given that summer doesn’t usually start until after the fourth of July due to typical “Seattle” weather. As of last week the summer weather that I have been waiting desperately for has arrived, like most folks that live around here, I need to remind myself of that when I feel like complaining about being too hot, instead I will try and enjoy it as much as possible.

 If you are not one of the lucky ones to have air conditioning at home you will need to find another way to keep cool and if you live in the Puyallup area there are plenty of places nearby that you can check out. The kids and I have spent the last couple days cooling off in the water at Allen Yorke Park in Bonney Lake. Allen

The housing market in Western Washington is on an upward curve in spite of its demand for higher and better quality homes for buyers to choose from. Quality homes in the right location and with the right price are selling extremely fast with multiple offers but there aren’t enough of those kinds of homes currently on the market. The Multiple Listing Service reports that inventory has increased compared to last years numbers but competition is intense and agents and buyers are getting more creative and more aggressive when submitting offers.

The MLS shows that inventory levels in Pierce County have gone up from last years 2.71 to 3.22 this year, it also shows that one of every 5 homes sold in Pierce County are distressed. For those sellers who wanted to
