"Our State Fair is a Great State Fair!

Don't miss it, don't even be late!" Those are all the words I know. It was a cheesy musical and not one of my favorites even though I love musicals. Earlier this summer, my friend L and I had a conversation about Minnesota's state fair. It's a BIG deal here. Her husband wasn't that interested and neither was mine but we wanted to show our girls (3 under the age of 4!!!) what it was like and of course fill up on fried food! So, this morning we went! And we were completely successful! We even survived with only one child melting down!
The girls loved the animals-M was a little scared but fascinated, and H (the oldest) wanted to pet EVERY animal! Too cute!
L and H went on the Giant Slide!
We enjoyed elephant ears, cheese curds, foot long corn dog on a stick, cotton candy, tom thumb donuts, and a bucket of cookies (with leftovers to give cookies to the husband!) We took the girls on the carousel-H & J loved it, M had fun but it was her first time so she didn't want to ride the horse after a minute or so. All done!

It was overcast and breezy all morning so even though we came home smelling a little like manure, we didn't roast or get soaked! Hooray!

How fun!

P.S. That's all I know of that song too. I couldn't even make it through the whole movie when I saw it as a kid.
