We went to the State Fair today. It was so much fun! The weather was gorgeous, although that also meant that the crowds were huge. Granny, Poppy, and Robie came with us and we checked out the whole fair. The girls went through a cool petting zoo, visited horses, cows, sheep, pigs, rabbits, chickens, turkeys, and pigeons, went on a pony ride, and shared cotton candy - all the usual State Fair adventures. Katherine fell in love with a team of draft horses pulling a wagon, toured all the campers and motor homes for sale, steered an electric boat around a pond, and watched a cow in labor (and was completely fascinated by it). Rachel tried sour cream raisin pie (our traditional fair food), watched newborn piglets, took a nap in her stroller, and made the connection that chickens lay eggs. It was a great day!
