Harrison wanted to have cotton candy!
Carter wanted to see the train exhibit!
Kurt wanted to visit the Varied Industries Building!
I wanted to see the famous "butter cow!"
The boys pose for us in the parking lot- they are so excited to visit the fair!
Of course they had to sit in this, lol.
The first stop was to the butter cow!!! We did not snap a picture of it- but try and imagine a cow sculpted out of enough butter to cover 19,200 pieces of toast. That's a lot of butter!!!
Our second stop was to the Union Pacific exhibit!
We then got Harrison some cotton candy. He was such a sweetheart and shared with the rest of us! (Can you tell what color the cotton candy was?)
While we were thinking of snacks... I managed to convince Kurt to try some famous "fried butter!" (To set the record straight- Kurt did not really want to try fried butter- but he took one for the team and did it anyway! Last year we had seen a news story about fried butter and the Iowa State fair, and I felt like it would be appropriate for Kurt to try it out!!! **I would have tried it, but Kurt and I both agreed that heat, pregnancy, and fried butter do not sound like a great combination.
