Minnesota State Fair 2013

It's already that time of year again.  Yesterday we enjoyed "the great Minnesota get-together."  After Amanda, Nathan and Lucy missing it last year due to Nathan being only weeks old, it was great to have everyone there again.  Each of us have our favorite parts of the fair.  Nathan loved the french fries.  Lucy liked watching the parade.  Matthew really wanted to watch the skateboarders and bmx riders.  Caleb was pretty excited about getting his $5 item from the souvenir shop.  Molly had a great time on the sky glide with her brother.  Amanda always likes to watch people.  I love getting to talk to the high school kids about their animals.  I met a really interesting kid from Stillwater who may be able to help us get some pigs next year.

It's probably good that it only comes once a year.  It it was more often, we would all weigh 300 pounds and be broke.  As the kids prayed last night, getting to go to the fair made all of their list of things for which they were thankful.  It made mine as well.  Memories made and good times had by all.
