State Fair recap...

On Friday Morgan and I went to the MN State Fair. We went in the evening, which we haven't done before, but we were going to see Garrison Keillor that night. We had a couple hours to see a few things and eat. Here' s a little picture recap of what we did.

The Miracle of Birth Barn
My favorite Signs

Morgan's two bread entries in the Creative Activities Building. Neither won but both were displayed. It's a rather competitive endeavor, which we were not aware of prior to Morgan entering. Other displays in the Creative Activities building.

The Wind Blade by the Eco Exhibit Hall.
A few night photos of the midway after the show

And the fireworks!

Today would have been the first day of my tenth year of teaching. The Girls called me about a half hour ago. I got the run down on everyone's outfits and how things were shaping up. It's supposed to be close to 90˚ today so I hope they all stay comfortable. The school doesn't have A/C so it can get pretty hot in there!
I got a bit teary after I hung up with them. I love being home with Owen and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I just miss some things about being at school. Especially The Girls.

The State Fair looks awesome. Sounds like you and Morgan had fun. Sorry his breads didn't win, but there is always next year.
Love all the photos! The fireworks look terrific.
Its hard not going back to work after having a baby. Next year you may want to get back in there, lol. It does take a lot of time and adjusting.

Awesome shots Heather. I don't know why but I am in love with that Milk shot. I wonder if it's because I love milk so much and the thought of an "all you can drink milk for a buck" stand makes me drool... no matter what the reason behind it, it think it's a cool shot.

P.S Was it really all you can drink?

Neat photos! I really like that first night time shot - the colors on the awnings especially!
