minnesota state fair - day 1

The day started a little iffy when two of the park and ride lots were full by 10:30 AM. Luckily there was street parking outside the second lot, so we didn’t have to go to a third. We waited 30 minutes through 5 busses before getting on our way. Emma waited very patiently dIMG_44698/IMG_4469-768x1024.jpg)](/content/imagesIMG_00208/IMG_0020-768x1024.jpg)](/content/images/2015/08/IMG_0020.jpg)

Once we got the fair the eating was on – fried green tomatoes, garlic fries, cheese curds… anIMG_44768/IMG_4476-768x1024.jpg)](/content/imagesIMG_44878/IMG_4487-768x1024.jpg)](/content/imagesIMG_00318/IMG_0031-768x1024.jpg)](/content/images/2015/08/IMG_0031.jpg)

After we were stuffed we headed to some of the animal barns, which is always Emma’s favorite. She wantIMG_00588/IMG_0058-768x1024.jpg)](/content/imagesIMG_00488/IMG_0048-768x1024.jpg)](/content/imagesIMG_00578/IMG_0057-768x1024.jpg)](/content/images/2015/08/IMG_0057.jpg)

We’re planning on going two more days. While we were there Emma pointed out every chocolate chip cookie bucket. We were too full to get one this time, but we will be getting one next time for sure.
