Minnesota State Fair Ya'll!

Once upon a time (about two weeks ago), the women folk in the Adams family decided that we were big girls and could travel across the country by ourselves - so that's what we did. (Eric was invited but he had to work, so it was just us girls).
So we headed to the airport to catch our first-class coach ride to the land o' lakes.

Here Emily checks out our sweet ride..

Our main purpose of the trip was to visit these awesome ladies.

Seriously, they're awesome, and they took us to this place...

We went to the MN State Fair and had a GREAT time. It really is something to see. Lots of sights to see, great entertainment and the best part is the food!

Here's Emily with the 2nd largest pumpkin. We didn't eat it - but we did eat lots of other things...

Like fried cheese curds (Side note: my favorite item of the day)

We rode things like this. Even Grandma was a sport and rode it too.

Back to eating... we had "Pronto Pups" - the non-corndog corndogs.

They taste even better when you wear the hats....

At the dairy barn, we got milkshakes and icecream cones and watched a "princess" get carved in butter. It was all dairylicious...

Deep fried Twinkie - both delicious and disgusting...

Here Emily sums up the time we had at the fair.

It was a long journey to get there, but it was well worth it.

And this was just the first day of our time in MN. More pictures of the rest of our visit coming soon.
