After celebrating a friend of ours 50th birthday last night, we woke up early this morning and traveled as a family to the great MN get together.
We parked at the Wilder Foundation and had a free shuttle to the fairgrounds. We arrived shortly after 10am and immediately staked out our menu:
Anders--churro, all the milk you can drink and a snowcone
Katie--cheese curds, all the milk you can drink and a snowcone
Osten--cheese curds, all the milk you can drink and a snowcone
Brad--scotch eggs, all the milk you can drink
Karen--pretzel dog, all the milk you can drink, a cup of egg coffee and a piece of rhubarb pie
Then we did some drag racing at the go-cart track, sought out Ross' bench near the 4H building where a couple was enjoying some rest from the humid day, scoured the eco building where Katie and Osten spent time building in the outdoor play area.
We then made our way back to the shuttle and ended up walking at the end of the parade with some clowns.
Fun day the fair and we did it all in just 4 hours as we got back on the road to River Falls by 3:00pm.
