Steele County Free Fair

We have been to the fair twice so far and have plans to go two more times. The first night Grandma & Grandpa M. joined us so that they could see the artwork that the kids did for the fair. They each did an initial fingerpainting and Isabel also did an abstract dolphin princess sculpture.
The first night we also went on rides. We also visited the vendors in the 4-seasons building to see what businesses we were interested in and what kinds of free stuff they were passing out. Isabel says it is "summer trick-or-treating" and really enjoyed herself. She actually enjoyed it so much that we had to do it again the next day.

I fed the kids supper before we went the first night & packed a lunch for the 2nd day so that we wouldn't go broke and completly balloon up eating fair food. I told Isabel she could pick out one fair treat each day we went. The first night she picked out cotton candy and let Henry & I sample some. The 2nd day she picked out a sno-cone. She has plans for what she will get as her treat the next 2 days.

On the 2nd day, we went to see the Exotic Animals petting zoo. Isabel hates the smell of the manure in the animals barns and so we can't go in those. :( (Maybe the day we go with daddy she can stay out with him so I can take Henry in.) But the Exotic animals don't have all that smell, so she will go in there. And then I lose quarters buying feed so that she can feed the animals.
The 2nd day we also saw a magic show. We went to the fair for 3 hours each time. There are some things we haven't seen yet, so we will catch those the next couple days.
