We went to church on Saturday and spent the day yesterday at the Great Minnesota Get-together.
Yes, we did this. Twice.
Normally we have no crying or tears at the State Fair. This year Adelyn was stung by a bee at supper.
Ate a turkey leg for the first time. Pretty good. A pretty good deal, too.
Saw this guy. Tried to figure out how it works. He’s tall. Our kids were interested, scared, bemused and intrigued. At one point he walked into the Arts and Crafts building, lifted his hands to his mouth and yelled, “Lucy, I’m home!”
Closed down the ice cream shop outside the 4H building for the third year in a row – this year the manager asked us if we wanted the extra french fries and came out with two large baskets. We thanked him.
One of the favorite parts of the fair was the super extended bus getting home from the fair. Our kids sat in the middle section and enjoyed the accordian like attributes of the vehicle. And it was free!
Time spent at the fair (from getting out of our car to getting back to it): 11.5 hours.
* Yes, I write some of these on Mondays.
