We made the trip into Des Moines for the state fair today. It was Jacob’s first time at the fair which, after living in Iowa for almost 15 years is pretty impressive. Parking at SE Polk high school and taking the DART bus is totally the best way to get to the fair though.
We enjoyed seeing the pigs, sheep and cows. Brita’s favorite animals were the tiny baby goats and the biggest boar. Jacob enjoyed the photography exhibit and people watching.
While we didn’t eat everything on a stick, we did stop and get an egg on a stick. While we were there we figured we might as well see the butter cow so we could get that crossed off the list. We even enjoyed a funnel cake.
It was a good trip and who knows, maybe Jacob will make it there again in the next 15 years.
