Here are some pictures from an early trip to the State Fair, when the boys were four. We caught my friend Art Ruckle playing sax with the Red Rock Swing Band, ate more than our share of cookies, and rode the Kidway rides.
This was one of my first solo outings with them, which is why there are stickers on their shirts: I fixed their names and my phone number to them before heading out. They didn’t get separated from me on this trip (they waited until St. Patrick’s Day in St. Paul to earn “special guest” stickers from the police)–since I had the cash we needed for root beer and corn dogs, they knew to stay close at hand!
Do you have some State Fair pictures to share? Link them in the comments, or add them to the Dad’s Eye View Flickr pool!
