Our state fair.

Yesterday was the opening of the Iowa State Fair. As is a new found family tradition, we went on the opening day - twins and multiples day. The rain cleared early and we made the trip complete with my grandma, aunts, cousins...

If you take your young kids to the Iowa State Fair, do not miss the Little Hands on the Farm. It's a simulated farm that allows kids to walk through the entire farming process and earn "money" to buy something from the grocery store. The 3 four year olds we brought, loved it.

I also took a look at the knitting and fiber entries. I didn't enter anything, despite all the talk by certain bloggers. I didn't feel like my knitting would be up to par to be competitive, and so fear kept me away from the competition. Well, there were some very nice entries, but overall, I feel like I could have been competitive in some of the categories. But there were also some amazing quilts and sewing projects. Next year I will enter. But, I did recognize a felted bag by a fellow Iowa Chick Knitter, Knit Addict, Kelly with a ribbon on it. Anybody else out there enter?
