"Our state fair is a great state fair..."
Bill and I took a trip to Des Moines this weekend to visit the Iowa State Fair - said to be one of the best in the country! It is one of my favorite times of the year - I've been for 27 years in a row (the first year was while my mom was just pregant with me! - hardcore!). I initiated Bill into all the traditions when we started dating... the barns, the greasy food, the midway, and of course, the butter cow! One of the highlights this year was the record-breaking pumpkin. The fair signals the end of summer and is just a great Iowa tradition, in my opinion.
