Katie, Art and one of our cousins....

We spent Labor Day at the Minnesota State Fair. Jesse, Laurie and I had already been once this year, but Katie had not. She wanted to have a deep-fried turkey sandwich, a chocolate malt from the Dairy Building and a tub of Sweet Martha’s cookies. Hmmm, all of the attactions she wanted to see revolved around food. What is it they say about the acorn and the tree?

We also spent a lot of time in the animal buildings – mostly the poultry house, laughing at all the weird chickens. Later in the day, we met up with @garciasn and the Budget Nazi for a cold Summit (being that they were out of the Summit beer on a stick, we settled for pints of our faves – an EPA early in the day, and a Red Ale with Bill). Click here for Bill’s write-up.

We strolled around the Grandstand looking at junk and visited our friends at the Swarm booth (Swarm it up!), where the girls got some souvenirs. Because we just don’t have enough Swarm gear already.

Came home just before supper, then thought we’d try Ramy’s Pizza in Apple Valley, after hearing everybody rave about it. The pizzas were pretty good (we had a cheese, a pepperoni and onion and a thin-crust Margherita, the way god intended). Katie had chicken Alfredo and said it could have had more Alfredo flavor.
