State Fair Again

So we went back to the fair again. This time we took the whole gang. Well, 3 of Sisters kids and my 3, Sister and BroInLaw, and Mom of course.

The Butter Cow is always a favorite of crowds. This year they had Star Trek figures also.

Learned something new! This is a flag display that is either new or we have missed. So we went to check it out. Apparently, each county in Iowa has their own flag, we found all three of ours. It’s a really pretty place.

BIG SLIDE!! I didn’t get everyone in the picture, partly because they race to the bottom and I have to record it so we know who won. Landon won this year.

Denton liked this tractor in the FFA Farm Tractor display.

Yes, they got me on the Sky Glide. Other than a cool view, I don’t love it. I am more of a feet on the ground kind of girl, but I will pretty much do anything for my kids.

It’s a terrifying way to end your day at the fair. Ok maybe I am being a little dramatic.

The State Fair is fun for everyone. If you want a snapshot of what Iowa has to offer, it’s there. They say Great Food, Great Fun, Great Friends. Yup Sums it up pretty good. Until next year!
