countdown to the fair!

Summer is winding down and here in St. Paul we are consoled by the fact that we end it with one of the best events of the summer, the Minnesota State Fair.

When I was a little girl, living 'up north', I dreamed of one day going to the state fair.  I didn't raise cows or chickens, so I knew I wouldn't get there that way.  My parents did not seem interested, so it was never a family event.

Since I moved to the 'cities' back in 1987, the fair has been a yearly, much anticipated event on our calendar!

Each year we track down our favorites:

And every year we like to find something new:

Whether you gather round that year's biggest pig,

or enjoy a turkey sandwich,

there is nothing like a day at the fair.  And to make this year's event even MORE FUN, Heather and Riley are coming down to join us for our day of fun!!!

  1. Looks like so much fun. I haven't been to the MN State fair since I was a teen. Love the pic of you & Charlie behind the board. Cute!


Thanks for stopping by!
