Iowa State Fair

We ventured out to the Iowa State Fair this afternoon.  It was a lot of fun except it was so stinkin’ packed with people.  I think everyone else had the same idea about going on the day when the weather is perfect.  Jaxson had a lot of fun seeing all of the different animals and watching all of the people.  He also enjoyed the famous fair food.  Let’s see. . . we tried a plain ol’ turkey sandwich, turkey nuggets, pizza, a tenderloin, and for dessert we had strawberry shortcake and a deep fat fried snickers, which to my surprise was very good.  We spent four hours at the fair and I feel like we didn’t get to see all that much.  Maybe we could have seen more if we weren’t eating most of the time.  Oh well!  So it’s back to work for me tomorrow.  I think the boys are going to hang out and play and then in the afternoon they got invited to a BBQ at a neighbor’s house.  These neighbor’s live down the street a little ways and have a son named Jack, who is eight days older than Jaxson.  They also have a dog named Hawkeye, if that tells you anything.  I’m sure that Brad and Jaxson will fit right in and have fun.

    ok. the monkey suit is hilarious! I can’t believe it didn’t make the cut- the winner must be too cute. Jaxson (Bubbie) gets cuter every day, I swear. I just love looking at your blog – feel like I live in DM!
