Wednesday Weekly Review - The Iowa State Fair...Nothing Compares!

This past weekend, we headed to Iowa for the Iowa State Fair and to meet Baby Cameron.  We got there fairly early on Friday and had time to go to the park at my elementary school and play a little tennis.

 D loves the monkey bars!  And he even was able to get from one bar to the next by himself a few times!

Namma took Dylan to goofy golf (mini golfing) while I went to visit JoAnne, Jeremy, Quentin and Baby Cameron.  Cameron is absolutely adorable and I definitely wanted to take him home with me...well, maybe after he has learned to sleep through the night :)

On Saturday morning, Namma, Dylan and I met Jeremy and Quentin at the Iowa State Fair.  JoAnne was bummed not to be able to join us, but decided all that walking would probably not be good for her.  We started out at the Helping Hands farm.  Dylan and Quentin really enjoyed it this year!

At the end of the helping hands, you "sell" your products and get to go to the grocery store and buy an item.  Quentin chose a banana...Dylan went with Cheetos :)

Spin Art FUN!!!

Snack time at the cream and Cheetos :)

Yellow slide fun!!  D insisted that he wanted to ride by himself...he tells me that it was a little scary, but mostly fun!  He liked it enough to go a second time!!

D's favorite part of the fair...the corn dog!! 

D played a lot of songs on the piano!  I think he was inspired by our trip to FAO Schwarz in NYC with Aunt NiNi and Uncle Chris.
On Sunday morning, I took Dylan over to the Turner house to meet Baby Cameron and so I could get some more of my baby fill! 

Giving Frodo some gentle pats!

Still to come...All Star Game and NYC fun!  But hey, I finally made another Wednesday :) 


  1. Such great photos and great memory book. Dylan is so strong on the playground equipment--and so fearless. It is fun to watch him play so hard. Baby Cameron is a doll!

  2. Iowa state fair looks awesome, and congrats to Joanne, Jeremy and Quentin- Cameron is adorable.

  3. I can't wait to meet the baby and next year we are in for the fair!
