The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It's that time of year again, when we sally forth to...







That's right:  The Iowa State Fair!

Right about here is where I should put photos of the butter cow, Snow White and the seven dwarves-

Really, spell check?  "Dwarves" is incorrect? Let's just google that... aha, "dwarfs" is apparently the standard plural form of the word "dwarf," but Tolkien popularized the variant plural, "dwarves."  You're welcome.

Anyway, we saw the butter cow, Snow White and the seven dwarfs/dwarves made of butter, a 10 1/2-foot moose made of chocolate, and other confectionary delights that we were actually allowed to eat, but I didn't have the camera a lot of the time. 



I did have the camera, however, when Grandma and Papa bought all three kiddos some of those ice cream cookie sandwich things.

Caedmon was most pleased.






Except then Evil Mommy and Daddy decided that his little stomach probably couldn't handle all of the giant sandwich thing- at least not without some unpleasant repercussions that we would no doubt have to deal with later.

So we confiscated the remaining 40% of the treat.



Poor Caedmon.





Adelaide has this thing about hanging on people.  Not too often, but I wasn't at all surprised to see this photo.  Fortunately, it wasn't hot the day we were there.  What is it with kids and their sudden need to drape themselves all over you any time the temperature rises?  

Anyway, here she is, hanging on her Papa.






And right about here is where I start to feel guilty because I just realized that we didn't really get any great photos of Atticus at The Fair.  I can't just post photos of two of them and exclude the third, so here's a random photo of our Atticus.






Man, that kid is weird.




All in all, we had a great day at The Fair.  Although I am still reeling from our inability to find any corn on the cob.  What is The Iowa State Fair without corn on the cob?  

It's been bothering me.  

Ah, well.  I can always try again... in a year.
