fairly nuts...

State Fair, Trip # 2 (because it's never the same day twice)

Don't buy two orders of anything, let alone Cheese Curds. Even if you are eating them for breakfast with a Pronto Pup. (clearly this employee can't wait for the fair to be over, or else she is just camera shy. Charlie is thrilled to have his picture taken, as well.)
Do support the global economy by shopping at the International Bazaar. (I bought so much stuff from this family they invited me to come and stay with them at their home in Guatemala):
See something you haven't visited before-this year we checked out the Pioneer cabin, and Charlie mailed a letter to his grandparents from the post office inside. (and why did the Post Mistress have to be in a cage?)

Bypass the long line for the River Ride (you'll just get wet, anyway) and head to the Pirate Shootout!Visit the Cow Barn, if just to marvel at the architecture (but the Brown Swiss are pretty wonderful too).

And visit the Llamas (we even got to see them decide on Best In Show!)

Do let your weapons obsessed 10 year old (and hubby) play the shooting game on the Midway:

Don't let him hold up the carnie when he doesn't win:

Enjoy the view from the top of the Ferris Wheel, and feel the nice breeze blowing over Falcon Heights:

But mostly, just appreciate being together as a family, (while your 10 year old still wants to hang out with you).
