State Fair annual trip!

Well we again made our annual trip to the MN state fair. We started this about 3 years ago. We go on a Sunday, hit the state fair, twins game and whatever else we have time for. We usually stay until Wednesday. Seems to be less people going during the week and we don't have to fight too many crowds this way. The boys love that they don't have to wait in long lines for anything! One of their favorites is the Merry Go Round!

Of course we have to make a few runs down the giant slide. Here is Dylan with his Uncle Matt and Grant with me. It was so funny because we just took off about half way down and we were laughing so hard because we felt like we had no control! As you can see, we beat them! hahah!

A few shots of hockey in the Wild shootout!

Dylan finishing one of his 4 corn dogs! as the boys get older we sure notice how much more food we buy! I think next year we will start saving now for just a food fund!

It was very hot again this year, almost 90 degrees out! So at the end of the day, to cool off before heading back to the hotel, Grant wanted to hit the water ride of course! So Brad took him along with Brad's parents down the ride. I offered to stay and watch all personal stuff that they didn't want to get wet. At this point, my mom, brother and Dylan had left for the hotel. Dylan just couldn't take that many hours yet! But Grant could stay all day and night if we let him. He loved this ride. I think next year we will have to take it more than once I'm afraid!
Well another great year at the Great MN get together! We enjoy our mini vacation every year and the boys now have it on their calendars for next year!
