We have a love-hate relationship with the Iowa State Fair. We look forward to it every year but sometimes when we're there we ask ourselves why we even like it (it's a ton of people, a lot of walking, and we spend $30 just by parking and walking in).
The way things shook out this year, we actually went twice (once with Eric's mom and once just us). Last year we went without Rooney and kept saying "Rooney would love this!" Ha. You know what she did when we got there? Threw a fit for about 20 minutes. Fun fun! Why don't we do more fun stuff with the kids?
The weather was awesome this year. Usually it is SO hot but we had two cool days which definitely made it more enjoyable.
