I love the Minnesota State Fair! On Wednesday night the girls and I went with Anita and Darla. It was fun to go with Darla because we went to places we never go – like Heritage Square. Turns out Darla buys stuff at the Fair. We never buy anything we can’t consume on the fairgrounds.

On Friday, we went with Anita, Rick, Will and Mary. Our timing was perfect and we got to build things with the Home Depot folks. That was fun. We checked out the Eco Environment building. We saw the parade from our super comfortable seats at the Children’s Hospital area. The kids painted, we ate – all in the comfort of our shaded table.

On Saturday, we did our second annual scavenger hunt with the Lynches.

Here’s the food we ate:

  • Sweet Martha’s Cookies
  • Tom Thumb Donuts
  • French Fries
  • Pronto Pups
  • Gyros
  • Deep Fried Mashed Chick Peas
  • Cheese Curds
  • Malts
  • Hot Dogs
  • Chicken Gyro


  • Ferris Wheel
  • Swing-Merry-Go-Round Thing
  • Ride Around a Ring
  • Giant Slide (even Grandma!)
  • River Ride (Patrick got soaked!)

Fun Things We Did:

  • Got black eyes from the Roller Girls
  • Saw the biggest pig
  • Learned who was the best hand-washer at the Ag building (Very cool exhibit!)
  • Played in the Arcade
  • Went to the International Bazaar (our one activity too much)
  • Hung out at the Leinie Lodge
  • Got our picture-calendar done in the Education Building
  • Picked up school supplies in the Education Building

Can’t wait for next year!!
