the fair

Oh how we love the Great Minnesota Get Together!! We were fortunate enough to be able to go twice this year. We went spur of the moment with Anna and Danny on a weeknight and then we went again on a date day -we left Max with my parents. We liked this arrangement so much, I think we will do it like this every year! That way our kids will get to see the fair, but only for a few hours when it's not so crazy busy and then Dave and I can take our time and enjoy a date a different day. Here are the highlights:

One of our favorite bands, Farewell Milwaukee, happened to be playing the night we were there. 
So fun to see them!

If you remember, Dave wears his Genie shirt every year. You can see past years here.
He got several compliments on it this year. Mostly from young kids. And one police officer.

Dave met and chatted it up with a local coffee roaster.

We love Spring Grove Soda. They are a local soda company that makes fun flavors like Rhuberry, but one of my faves is Black Cherry. This is me shouting "BLACK CHERRY SOOOOOODAAAAAAA" Oprah style.

Thanks to my parents, we found a super secret, shady spot to rest in for a few minutes. We gathered up our strength so we could consume more fried food!

And consume we did. This turned out to be my favorite thing and will be added to the MUST list from now on: deep fried chocolate chip cookie dough. It was AMAZING!

I look forward to the fair for 11.5 months every year. I'm always a little sad when it's over. Especially since I have to wait that long for more deep fried cookie dough!! Goodbye State Fair. I'm already looking forward to you next year!
