State Fair

We took the girls to the opening day at the Indiana State Fair last Friday. We had a great time and the weather was perfect. We petted some farm animals, rode ponies for the first time, saw a spectacular Chinese acrobatic show and ate some incredibly unhealthy but yummy food! No, we did not venture out and try the "Chocolate covered bacon" though.

What kind of state fair would it be without learning how to milk a cow!

And while we were getting ready to watch the Chinese acrobat show, some friends of ours from our first travel group to China found us. So, we were able to enjoy the show together. Their daughter, C, and Lily lived as foster sisters for the first 10 months of their lives in Hubei, China. And their youngest daughter, Z, is one year younger than Lia. It was great to see them.

And poor Lia passed out before we even put the minivan in drive.

Hey Mrs. Grammer, you may want to read the 3rd sentence in your blog. You weren't very grammatically correct!!

I LOVE State Fairs.... It might be the funnel cakes that I shouldn't eat... but man they are yummy.

Looks like a fab time!! The girls are adorable!
