The Great Minnesota Get Together

Today we headed to the State Fair for Maddy's first. She must have really been excited because she decided not to sleep from midnight to about 4:00 am (ugh!). Needless to say we got to a slow start with a very crabby mommy & daddy.

We met up with Tracy, Adam & Charlotte & got to meet another local RQ family which was fun. The 3 girls ranging from 18 months to 3 were very excited by the animals in the Birth Center. Maddy knows the animals by what they say more than their actual names. (Ba, Moo, Neigh)

The 3 proud daddies

Maddy also got to go on the Giant Slide (aka 'Weee') & the Merry Go Round (which she calls the Neigh).

Of course no state fair visit would be complete without eating some of the favorites. Maddy tried her first deep fried cheese curds & seems to really like them. Here she is tasting her first Sweet Martha's Cookies (still in business after 30 years):

And finally one photo each with mom & dad:

What a blast you must have had, sharing her first (of many) MN state fairs! I know she had fun, (how can you help that.} She was bombarded with all the sights, sounds and smells of the fair.

Great pictures, it looks like you had a wonderful time. And I just have to say "mmmmmm, fried cheese"
