The grand old MN State Fair!

Tony's foot was okay meaning he was in pain, but it wasn't going to stop him from attending the fair!

I'm afraid I wasn't the best blogger, so the contents of our fair fare will have to be without visual aid . . . but here's the rundown of what we ate:

Pronto pup
Cheese curds
Fried pickles
Dill pickle
Axel's bull bites
Dole pinneapple and raspberry swirl cone
Roasted corn on the cob
Jennie-O pulled turkey sandwich

The only item we did not share was the corn on the cob, we each get one for ourselves. :)

It was such a delicious day!

Here are some pictures . . .






Attending the fair is almost a state holiday in observance of the end of summer. And so fitting, when we returned home Friday night, after a game of Cranium at Beth and Randy's, the air was crisp and just perfect for sleeping!

MN Fall we're ready for you!

I am so bummed we won't get to go this year! The babies are not cooperating lately and the heat + walking isn't going to happen right now. I was craving Bull Bites too! There is always next year I guess.
