We went to the state fair twice this year 'cuz we just couldn't get enough of it after one evening.
Do you realize that we actually did bring the double stroller? But this mode of transportation is much more fun.
Petting the various farm animals is always a highlight for the kids.
Meredith is going to be our roller coaster girl. She loved all the rides.
The winning pumpkin weighed 1,145 pounds!
Clara is definitely in this cheesy smile phase.

The second day we went was "Taste of the Fair." It was fun to sample many of the fair offerings for just $2. I hope they do it again next year!
One of the kids' favorite things was the Riley Hands-On Farm. They got to feed (pretend) farm animals, plant produce, harvest produce, collect eggs, gather wool, milk a cow, etc. Then at the end they sorted and sold their goods at the market and were given a (pretend) dollar to spend at the general store. Meredith picked a granola bar and Clara picked orange juice. It was very educational and they LOVED it.
