This year I was set on going because I thought it would be a fun activity for Zeb and me, and I really kind of wanted to eat something weird and fried. (Read: fried twinkie, fried spam, fried snickers.) Sounds fun, right?
So, we drove the hour and a half to Sedalia and had the best time. I had a few things I wanted to definitely do while I was there.
1. See some cows
2. Eat something fried (see above)
3. Ride the ferris wheel
While there, we spent a lot of time with farm animals. We saw 4-H kids showing cows, walked through the cow barns and spent a lot of time at the petting zoo.
Unfortunately, I couldn't find any weird, fried stuff and settled for a funnel cake, but I did get to ride the ferris wheel and was much more scared than I thought I would be.
I was really, really happy the entire time, and I think that was suprising for Zeb. He didn't know the State Fair would make me feel so much joy, but I loved being there among the farmers, and small town people. I loved experiencing this type of life for this small moment of time.
I made a scrapbook page about it, too. I used an 8x10 photo for this layout which is rare. I usually stick with 4x6 or smaller, so working with this size photo posed a challenge. It's simple, but I like it.
