All my life, I've wanted to be a mom.
Somehow, I was blessed with the greatest kids. They never gave me a minute of trouble. They always got along and took care of each other. Although our life has had some very difficult times, we always hung together and enjoyed each other's company.
My children are grown into fabulous adults and moved a couple of hours away now, but they still want me to come and spend time with them. I love that, and still love them more than life itself.
They wanted to go to the State Fair. The Minnesota State Fair is the second largest state fair in the United States. If you go to the Fair; expect large crowds, walking until your feet fall off (or you wish they would), and unimaginable fried foods served on a stick. This year's State Fair set attendance records. On our day, Labor Day, the weather was cool, windy, and featured intermittent rain. I decided a photo journal of our foods on a stick would be a good way to chronicle our State Fair adventure.
