Iowa State Fair

Wowzers...we are back home from a long day at the state fair and let me tell you- my dogs are barking! When did I become such an old lady that my feet hurt whenever I spend a day on them?

It was raining this morning when we headed out so I left my real camera at home. So here is the end result- a day full of instagram photos! I think they are fun and something a little different. We had a great time and I'm glad Michael could enjoy the fair more now that he is a little older.

We did the "Little Hands on the Farm" early this morning after the rain stopped and we had the place to ourselves. Michael had a blast and everything was so cute.

My favorite part was the Bauder's peppermint bar followed by a stroll through the garden. They had so many varieties of zinnias and coleus that I hadn't seen before. I think I might have to do some ordering from a catalog or something next spring because I am in love!

Trace did really well and spent about half the time in the stroller and half the time in the carrier. I only fed him once at the fair in the super sweet baby nursing room and then in the car before and after. He was a good baby and got lots of compliments from people!

We'll be back later in the week so look for more updates... I'm now tucking myself in for a nice long evening of resting and putting my poor feet up!
