Iowa State Fair | 2016

We made it to the fair a couple of different times this year.  First was a Friday that Adam was at work and then out of town for a band gig, so the kids and I went for a couple hours of the morning when it was drizzling rain, and less crowded {yay!}, then home for naps, and back again later that night from about 7-9p.  The second was after work on a Tuesday night {yay for 1/2 price admission -- boo for long lines to get in!}  We had so much fun this year!  The kids are starting to have favorite parts, too.  They both loved looking at the animals {horses mainly, followed by cows & pigs}.  Both requested we ride the 'big slide' as a family, which was super fun -- I always forget how fast that slide goes!  Jordyn was obsessed with the mini donuts {had two bags} & Cullyn with the corn dogs {had two -- one was a foot long!} I didn't get a Snicker on a stick this year {such a shame!} but the 'tater ribbons' with cheese were fantastic!  Our out of focus {happens every time I had my camera over to someone} family photo was my favorite, followed by the kids singing and dancing to a concert on the first Friday night.  Pretty sure Adams highlight was the beer about 20 feet inside the door after he waited an hour in line in the nearly 90* weather {w/ super high humidity} at the front gate.
