Last Friday, we took Luke to the MN state fair. . . This is his *third time. The first time, he made me horribly sick with
morning all day sickness. And last year, he slept most of the time. . . This year, he wanted to try everything we ate and wanted to get out of the stroller most of the time.. .
We headed up to the cities and picked up Adam and Ashley and headed to the Park and Ride. <—the best way to get to the fair – for free! And Luke loved the bus ride. . . we sat right behind the bus driver and he was fascinated.
It was super hot, but that didn’t seem to deter any people!!
So, our first stop was obviously for beer. . .
And then ice cream. . . salted caramel and mini doughnut.
Then, some walking around and deep fried bread pudding <—highlight of the Fair this year, everyone’s favorite!!
Then, we had some fun walking around and checking out exhibits.
And Luke loved checking out all the new cars. . .
MN State Fair staple – Corn!!
We tried a new fair food – comet corn. Basically caramel corn that was frozen in liquid nitrogen. It was cool, but just ok.
Luke’s favorite food right now is pickles, so we got him a giant pickle.
Another State Fair staple – vanilla shake from the University of MN milk booth.
And of course, we had to go see the cows. . . which Luke loved! He kept saying more and moooooo. So frickin adorable.
And then, he was done.
But we weren’t! Cini-minis. YUM.
And the best ever turkey sandwich –> according to Beth.
And that was the end for us. We did a really good job sharing food, so we didn’t get too full or spend too much money!
And then it was back to the bus. And back to Mankato.
Another good year at the fair! Thanks for joining us Adam and Ashley!! Can’t wait for next year.
Do you go to your State Fair?
