What about the "lazy" days of summer? Summer is anything but lazy around here lately. It's chock-full of all kinds of good stuff, super-busy and lots of fun. Lots of photo-taking going on to capture these moments. I love summer. And August in particular.
First things first: here's our calendar for this month. It is totally simple, because I put it together in a hurry.
The big thing about August in our world is the Iowa State Fair. We love the Fair. Yesterday was opening day, and of course, we were there. I took Jacob and my niece Josie and those two hit the midway big time. We managed to look at a few things as well, but mostly they just wanted to ride the rides. As many as possible. Over and over. And over, and over, and...well, you get the picture. Here's a glimpse of our first day at the Fair:
The Giant Slide is always a must-do. The great thing about having an 11-year-old along is that she can take Jacob on this stuff, which means I don't injure myself.
All in all, a great day at the Fair. Seven hours of the Fair is not enough, though, so we'll be going back. There's so much to see and do that there's no way one visit could possibly suffice. Honestly, if I had unlimited money to spend, I'm pretty sure I could do all ten days of the State Fair and not get tired of it.
And parents, the Megapass wristband for unlimited midway rides is worth every penny of the $25.00. Kids (and grownups) can ride all day from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. That's a lot of rides.
Enjoy what's left of your summer, and maybe I'll see you at the fair.
