The end of summer snuck up on us and fitting in a time to hit the state fair was becoming slim. Isaac was to start school the 28th and Kyle was leaving for Europe the Saturday before... so we went day 2 of the fair, which was Friday, August 25th. We're not a fan of going on the weekends and even the week days are starting to get too crowded. But it's a tradition we wanted to fit in this year.
Many attempts at a family photo....
"Thanks, but could you try again with the State Fair sign visible in the background"
First stop, cookies for breakfast, then some mini-donuts:
Can't pass up the giant slide, kids all did it themselves this year.
Mary was the only one that wanted to try the corn on the cob, it was delish!
Eco building is one of my favorites.
More food: Pronto pup, beer flight, cotton candy & cheese curds.
