Last weekend was a lot of fun while having family in town visiting from Chicago.  It has kind of been a tradition for them to come to MN at the end of the summer and for us all to go out to the State Fair, so that's what we did last Friday night.  I still had my dad's camera so I was able to take some photos.

My favorite thing about the Fair is the Food! Isn't it for everyone!?? LOL.  IMO (in my opinion) it is always best to share food at the Fair,
that way you can try small bites of a lot of different things.  This
time at the Fair I sampled bites of:

  • Fried Ravioli
  • Cheese Curds
  • Fried Green Tomatoes & Corn Fritters with honey butter
  • Bacon-wrapped turkey tenderloin
  • Italian Gelato
  • Scotch Egg
  • Roasted Corn
  • London Broil
  • Corn Dog
  • Sweet Martha's Cookies

My favorite food?  Cheese curds, of course!!

We walked around a lot and I took some random photos here and there

It was a lot of fun and I'm glad most of the family could make it up this year! (D & K, wish you could've come too!)
