the great minnesota get together

Today we headed to the State Fair for a day of fun celebrating the end of summer. The fair is always so much fun and something our family looks forward to each year and the weather was absolutely perfect which made our day even better!

This year it was just four of us as Tyler had other plans- but we did bring him home his favorite State Fair treat- 'Sweet Martha Cookies'.

We visited a lot of different booths and exhibits. We stopped at John Deere and had to get Drew's picture on a tractor. (This used to be his very favorite part of the fair when he was little.)

We stopped to see Raven- who is a dog in a local TV show 'Minnesota Bound'.

One of my favorite spots is the Horticulture Building. I love looking at all the plants, vegeatables and flowers.
