Great MN Get Together

Mommy Says:

Did you know that MN has the 2nd largest state fair in the Nation? Texas has us beat. Some say we could have the lead, but the Texas fair lasts longer which somehow makes it bigger. I'm not sure I get the logic, but whatever...

In true MN fashion we couldn't wait to get Tyson to the fair this year. The manure scented barns, the greasy people eating greasy food, the hot and dusty fairgrounds..it's a right of passage and something we hope he'll look forward to every year.

The little guy was a trooper. We thought we'd do a quick 4 hour early morning trip. 4 hours turned into 8, but we all went home a few pounds heavier- a guaranteed sign of a successful fair trip.
The day was busy.

We took in the view from Daddy's shoulders.

This is great and all, but let's get me some food on a stick!

We rode the giant slide.

That's me--way up at the top. I'm totally not crying because I'm scared to death.

We took pictures next to GIANT tractor.

Am I shrinking?

We met up with Grandmas and Grandpas and Aunts and Uncles and Cousins galore.

Again, totally not crying.

We even managed to sneak Tyson onto a local news broadcast where the weather guy interviewed him and Daddy. We're hoping to get a copy of the video to post here soon. Daddy really wants to expand his 15 seconds of fame into 15 minutes.
