The Great Minnesota Get-together

Some of my fondest childhood memories were made at the Minnesota State fair. I remember strolling through the barns with my family, petting the sheep's puffy wool and admiring the largest boar. I remember riding down the giant yellow and green slide on rough burlap sacks with my brothers and sisters. And I will never forget the first time I walked through the haunted house and how terrified my brother and I were as ghosts and goblins appeared around every dark corner. The great Minnesota get together is my happy place.

I am so grateful that I got to spend Labor Day weekend with my family at the fair. It was my nieces' first fair experience, and I know that they will forever cherish the memories made just as much as I will.  

Poutine- french fries, gravy, and cheese curds. One of my new favorite fair foods. 
Princess butter sculptures. 
There is nothing more refreshing than a beer-garita.
The Minnesota State Fair is truly the greatest get together.

  2. Brilliant! I'm so there. Well, 'cept for the part where I'm in Australia but...semantics.

    :P

    Also, I may be 27 but I'm still a big ol' kid at heart, so whenever I see a carnival or luna park I have to go on at LEAST one ride, which amuses my husband to no end, heh heh.

  3. WOW! That looks like the best fair I've ever seen! I haven't been to one in ages. Maybe I should change that soon?
