The Great Minnesota Get Together

Since we’re not city-dwellers, my family doesn’t get to make it to the Minnesota State Fair every year.  But every year that we do is as memorable as the last.  Here are some pictures from the past couple:

Come One, Come All

Wild Horses

One of the cheapest and most entertaining things to do: The SkyRide.  Rest your weary legs and check out the fair from the top.

Real-Life Farmville

A trip to the fair would never be complete without a bucket of cookies from Sweet Martha’s Cookie Jar.  Always worth the wait.

Oh, Sweet Martha...



Isanti County Fair 2012

Every year we try to get to the Isanti County Fair at least once.  I’m not a ride person anymore, but they make good pictures. We like to go for the horse shows, the 4H barns and the music.


(This mama pig had JUST given birth to her piglets!! I have a soft spot for farm babies, but I think the piggies are undeniably cute!)
