The kind of tree this is please?

We had breakfast at Granny's restaurant in Milwaukie near our home this morning.
This tree was in the parking lot. The majority of the leaves were still green but there were some light orange leaves and yellow also.  There were also some burgundy, fuzzy pods hanging there also.

Look at the pretty pink and yellow on this one.  I would really like to know if someone could tell me the name of this tree.

An afternoon and evening at the Oregon State Fair

This afternoon Joe got off work early and we headed to Salem for the Oregon State Fair. It was a beautiful day
 
This old Farmall brought back memories for Joe. As a high school kid, living on a farm in North Dakota, he drove one like this

These birds were absolutely beautiful

(As long as they didn't land on MY shoulder)!

Both Joe and I love to watch the action in the horse barn.

This team won first place in the competition

Joe's favorite thing at ANY fair is corn on the cob dripping with butter. And he certainly wasn't disappointed at the Oregon State Fair

This young man, who was showing his sheep at the fair, didn't have a clue we took his picture.  He was out like a light.
