The Minnesota State Fair!
We wanted to get to the fair early this year, so Tyler could join us before heading back to college. And I was so happy that the weather looked good and it worked in everyone’s schedule for our whole family to go this past Friday!!
Our first stop is always to get some cheese curds! This is my favorite and if I were to only get one thing to eat at the fair, this would be it!
Some other State Fair favorites include:
the Horticulture Building with the amazing vegetables and flower displays
the Space Tower
a stop at the Twins booth
the Pet Center where I bought this awesome gadget- seriously
a ride down the Giant Slide
A stop at the Blue Moon Dine In Theater is a newer favorite of ours. This is a great place to stop and get out of the sun, sit down for a bit, watch a movie and eat some great food. The Korean BBQ tacos are great and the corn and bacon woodfire pizza is amazing!
No trip to the fair would be complete with out the mandatory stop at the Midway.
I think the Midway might be the whole reason Jake likes going to the fair! Look at that smile:)
He cleaned up at the basketball game. He even got Drew to hold them for him for while he kept playing.
That bag (that Jake brought from home) is filled with his winnings. :)
And the reason Tyler comes to the fair is because of Sweet Martha's Cookies.
Look at that smile.
And I found a patch of sunflowers. :)
With all of the fun things to do and eat at the fair;
my favorite parts aren't about any of that, but rather;
it is about spending some great family time,
the jokes and the laughter,
and the memories that are made.
That is what the fair is all about.
