Annual State Fair Trip

Ahh...the wonderfulness of the Minnesota State Fair!  It is hard to believe that any other fair could outdo this (although Texas claims they can).

Today we hit up the state fair with 150,000 of our closest friends!  What a blast with some great company and all sorts of foods on a stick!

We even ran into this friendly State Fair employee...
Happy State Fair Company Corn! Annual Brick Picture Cream puff Yummm...Meat!

Classic MN Fun: Mississippi Headwaters

Lake Itasca State Park is the home of the Mississippi Headwaters.  It's the type of place that you remember from your childhood, and somehow hasn't changed an ounce.  It's filled with interesting people watching of all ages, and scores of people scampering across the iconic Itasca rocks.

What a fun place to explore with the girls and our cousins:
