It's almost time for the MN State Fair! YAY!
You want to know how I know this (besides the fact that it is the same 10 days before Labor Day every year) - because Kare 11 started their really annoying State Fair jingle that plays about every other commercial. If you live in MN you know what I mean! :)
Anyway, I don't know why I always get so excited about the fair it's not like we participate in anything there or go for any specific reason (besides cheese curds of course) but it's just one of our traditions we like to do. I think we have gone every year for the past 4 years and we plan on taking the kids every year until they just won't go with us anymore! :) Things we don't pass up there include, but are not limited to, cheese curds, corn on the cob, ice cream (needless to say the healthy eating goes out the door for the day), the horribly smelly barns, the big slide and (now that the kids are older) the kiddie rides.
Last year on the rides.
This is usually how we finish the day. If only we could all crawl in there! :)
