Great Minnesota Get Together Recap

So today might be a LONG post because I got a NEW CAMERA finally! My parents surprised me with a Kodak Easy Share M1073 IS and I took lots of picture for my 24th Birthday and State Fair Day!
First things first my 5K this morning was awesome, cold though: 45 degrees:(
I managed to get under 24 minutes though which is a new PR for me. I chalk this up to my banana and almond butter for breakfast combo!
After the race I chaged for the day into my new jeans and my race t-shirt with my hubby of course!
Next we walked over to the DNR building to see the fishies!

The I saw this and HAD to take a picture: BIG FAT BACON! I can't believe people actually buy this!
And deep fried candy bars, oreos and twinkies!
This is me with my first food item of the day: Free mini donuts, because my mom knew someone who worked there, No Surprise, she knows everyone!

This pumkin is only 2nd place! And it was over 1000 pounds!

We were trying to go for the Christmas Card picture here:

And here:
Spam Burgers!

My husband and his fascination with lawn mowers, but one look at the price tag and we were off!
This is the funniest car ever, but my dad had one of these when he lived in Japan and they are almost street legal here!

My second food of the day: Cheese Curds with mustard, although I prefer mine with pizza sauce!
We recycle our corn cobs, how awesome is that and I bet that thing gets full in an hour or two!

And the famous Corn Roast! My mom grew up with the owner so every year is more free corn and you can smell the roasting for miles, so fun to watch them cook it even!
Space Needle, I'm not brave enough to go on, very afraid of heights!

Everyday there is a parade and since it's U of Minnesota day: Enter cheerleaders, since I used to be one in high school I love watching them and have always wanted to continue on with cheering! Did you also know that the University of Minnesota had the first cheerleaders EVER!

The Giant Slide, mu mom also knows someone who works here so when my brother and I were little we would go all the time, but I'm too old for it know. But people get married on this thing every year, crazy I know!

The butter queens being carved out! That's alot of butter!

The cute little sheep, one was born 55 minutes before we came! Same b-day as me!
We took a sky glider trip, I was nervous the whole time looking down, watched little teens spitting down, and we could also here Kelly Clarkson rehearsing in the Grandstand, then she cancelled her condert tonight due to illness! Sucks if you had tickets.
Well that was my fair adventure, I did eat more just didn't take pictures of little morsels here and there! It was a great 24th Birthday as well!
I love my new camera. This is my last week here in Minneapolis, I'm sad to leave but know I will be back in the near future, can't last in Iowa forever!
Have you ever moved across states? Where and how do you deal?

Looks like a fun fair! I used to think those fried candy bars looked so nasty and one year I actually tried a fried oreo and it was kind of delicious! haha.

I can't believe that pumpkin! I'd love to have it in my stomach! :D

awwwwwwwwwwwwww Happy (belated) birthday!!!!! Sounds like you had a really great day. I cannot believe how ginormous that pumpkin is!!

I have moved states sooooo many times. Just be positive, think of it as a new experience and enjoy all of the new adventures and friends you will have & make. Its tough to move, but it really helps you grow as a person.

I've moved sooo much. I've learned to look at each move as an exciting opportunity to see new places and meet new people.

Hope you had a great b-day!

So fun! I love all the pics from the fair.

The furthest place I moved too was from Cali to AZ. Not a huge move, but for me it was. It was the first time I have ever moved... it was just a year ago but I love it.
