State fun.

My summary of our trip to the Minnesota State Fair in pictures:

Minnesota, you've got an awesome state fair. I recommend the honey lemonade and the Bee and Honey part of the Agricultural Barn, and the roasted corn dipped in butter. I did not have the bucket of cookies or fried twinkies because everyone carrying those looked really unhappy.


  1. it's as if i were there.... very funny

  2. I spent a large part of my childhood living in Minneapolis. I have decided if I ever go back to visit, it will have to be during the weeks of the State Fair. It's amazing!

    Great post. Love the photo of the boys with the stuffed pigs!
