Iowa State Fair, 2009

Tracy, Olivia, & I had a great time at the Iowa State Fair. Even though Olivia went to the Fair when she was just a few months old, this was her first official visit. Tracy and I saw the Fair in a different way this year, but it was fun to see it through the eyes of a 5-year-old! Here are some highlights:

Mmm... cherry lemonade! I had 1 cherry and 4 regulars during the 2009 Fair.

My new food on a stick this year was the "Carmello." It was 4 marshmallows dipped in hot caramel. Delicious and cheap... only $1!

Olivia's pig impression... she LOVED seeing those baby pigs!

We rode the skylift several times. This was the final time, and by then, Olivia had pretty much had enough of the Fair! ;)

Tracy's photo of the Pottawattamie County Courthouse was selected to be displayed at the Photo Salon. This is the first year she entered the competition. Out of over 5000 entries, only 900 were chosen to be displayed. YEA!!!

The State Fair officially signals the end of summer for me. I'm headed to school this afternoon to start working in my classroom. I hope they have the floors done so I can get to my room. I'm ready to get back to school though. I always love the beginning of the school year. Goodbye, summer! It's been fun!

  1. I know this is your blog, but Olivia gets 1,000 Frankpoints for the Supergirl shirt (even though she threw that gold bird on her cheek). :-)
