Mac and cheese on a stick? Are you serious?
We weren't too sure about it at first, but it actually tasted good.
Not as good as the cookies though, Daddy's second favorite thing at the fair.
Daddy's first favorite thing . . . the milk booth. All the milk you can drink for a dollar.
Ever seen a chocolate and milk mustache?
Next year, corn dogs. With a stand like that, they have to be good.
There we were, minding our own business in the swine barn at the State Fair. We sauntered around the and . . . OINK!!! We came face to face with two real live pigs out of their cages!
We have so much fun before that, looking at all the pigs, laughing every time one of the oinked. Little did we know what was in store for us.
After we made it out of there, we took a moment to regain our composure on some hay bales.
We're gonna go down that??!!
OK. Awesome (even though Mommy wasn't a big fan). Can we go again?
We had a pretty amazing day and the great State Fair.
We discovered that we can fit inside a tractor tire . . .
. . . Santa Claus does come out in the summer (he gives out stickers) . . .
. . . and a day of eating, evading pigs, flying, sliding, walking, and discovering is exhausting.
Whew . . . time for a nap.
Relive our state fair adventure from last year here and here and here.
Daddy watered the lawn the other day. He didn't plan on it, but he watered us too.
This particular sprinkler goes around in circles, it was kinda hard to keep up.
We had a great time together and it felt so good to run through the cool water on a hot afternoon.
Words can't really describe the shenanigans that went on.
It seems silliness was the theme. Art did his part . . .
. . . and Charley giggled . . .
. . . as Mr. Ben did his thing, whatever his thing is.
We had an awesome time. Maybe everyone can come back tomorrow?
It took us FOREVER to open the gifts from Korea that Aunt Jen-Jen sent us.
Then, when we finally got them open, we couldn't figure out what they were. All the writing on the packages looked really funny. We think we figured these out, chopsticks (not chap stick).
There were lots of wonderful things in the box she sent, we had great time digging everything out.
Thanks for the interesting books, they're all we're reading right now. And thanks for the super cool t-shirts, chopsticks and pig magnets. We had a good laugh, for obvious reasons, when we saw those.
We were invited to the lake cabin of some of our friends. It was our first official visit to a Minnesota cabin. It's not that we were nervous, it was kinda windy and cold.
So we blew bubble for awhile instead. Luke and Leah, our friends who invited us, are really good at it. Look at all those bubbles Leah made using the wind.
A trip to the cabin wouldn't be complete without a boat ride.
It was pretty awesome . . .
. . . and we even got to drive. It's a good thing we were the only boat on the lake.
