The Missouri State Fair...

Corn dogs, funnel cakes, carnival games, live stock, and lemonade all in one place?  Sign us up!  Can you believe that Ken and I neither one had ever been to a state fair before?  I guess considering that the Missouri State Fair takes place in August and it is usually in the triple digits might be one reason we had never gone.  With milder August temperatures, we decided to change that.

We woke up on Saturday morning and Ken told me his goal for the day was to win me a prize.  He told me he wanted to go to the fair.  Who am I to deny myself of a corn dog?

We loaded up and made our way to Sedalia, MO for a little fun at the State Fair.

We were both surprised with how large the fair was!

Ready for some fun at the Fair!

We spent most of the day wandering around looking at pigs, chickens, and of course the other people at the fair.  We played a few games, ate a corn dog or two, and enjoyed some beer and lemonade.  We avoided riding any rides because, you know, a basic rule should be to never ride something that can be assembled in less than a day.  Plus, on a girls trip we once met a carney and I have to question this guys ability to problem solve, therefore, he is my only example of the traveling crew, hence no carnival rides for us.  :)

The proud owner of a stuffed husky that only cost us $30 in games to win, but you know, winning the husky made it more fun!

We definitely had a fun afternoon at the fair!
