State Fair Madness!

This past Labor Day weekend was spent at the Great Minnesota Get Together, well only one day…but a whole 14 hours! Can’t beat that. I think we did and saw everything one could possibly do and see at the fair. We ate double our combined body weight, or so it seemed, in greasy goodness, sweet Martha’s Cookies and Surly Beer. We visited ALL of the exhibits, oohed and aahed over the giant vegetables, dunked our hands in the seed boxes and ended the night with the Prairie Home Companion—Garrison Keillor show, which was beyond awesome as always! I can’t wait ’til next year.

The Great Minnesota Get-Together!

This past weekend was full of fun at the Minnesota State Fair! I hadn’t been to the fair in about 12 years, so I was due for some greasy food on sticks. There’s nothing quite like the fair to make you feel like a kid again. My favorite part was visiting the Agriculture Building to see all of the giant produce, crop art and other ag-related artworks. We also had tickets to Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor and it was absolutely amazing! I had the biggest smile on my face the entire time. It made my heart happy. I’m already excited for next year’s state fair!

We didn't get any camel on a stick.
