our first priority was beer. i had been up since 6am to put on the yard sale i’ve been avoiding all summer, and i was ready for a drink.
then, food. i had cheese curds, jenn got the cajun deep fried pickles served with a side of ranch.
then we wandered for a bit: we looked at cakes and breads in the creative activities annex…
then we watched a clogging demo. the old guy was so cute! then we toured the fine arts building…
more food! jenn got a pronto pup.
i’m pretty sure my fear of heights will keep me from ever experiencing the
sky ride skyglider.
the midway men’s club: the best place to refill your beer. theirs is the cheapest!
more food: i had a cheese chilito at mexican hat. i think jenn got a taco. we both agreed that if we ended up working at a food booth at the state fair when we’re retired old ladies, life wouldn’t be so bad.
the midway at sunset… we stayed away from the rides. the food and beer in our tummies ensured that we wouldn’t attempt rides like we were 12-year-old kids.
butter heads! each of the dairy princesses get their head carved in a 90 pound chunk of butter. i think they all look the same, but with different hairstyles.
not pictured: the pretzel we shared, my friends dan & nick singing at the farmer union, crop art, the dnr fish pond, heritage village, animal barns, the horse poop i stepped in (it was dark!), freddy krueger at the haunted house, the giant slide… a small part of me wants to go back! i don’t feel like i saw or ate enough…
