Iowa State Fair Memories

Our  state puts on a wonderful fair every year in the middle of August.
Dad tells of going with his parents and grandparents to camp and visit the fair.
We drive a much greater distance and elect to return home to comfort mattresses
rather than spend the night in sleeping bags.

Kelsey and her Dad were the soda jerks.

Hannah worked in the food line.

Warren, Malissa, and I worked in the dining area.

The Grundy County Pork Producers provided us with matching T shirts.
We are not sure orange is our color.
Hannah wants them pink next year.
Our work crew was a great group of guys and gals who started work a bit before
3:00 in the afternoon and worked until 9:30 at night.
We were a tired troop.

The best part of the Iowa State Fair is that is is a "forget the diet day".
Everyone had a double dip ice cream except Warren.
In the morning we were able to see the girls State Fair 4-H entries and
take in a small portion of the wonderful things to see and do.
