Iowa State Fair 2017

Another Iowa State Fair is in the books!
Aubrey and Dad stayed from Friday night through Sunday afternoon
while Mom and Avery stayed just for a long day on Saturday! 

Aubrey took this pic of Andrea
showing the bull on Friday.

Show Day - all clad in blue watching the kids color! 

The girls sat nice during the show with their sticker and activity books.

Avery was brave enough to comb "Journey" without holding a hand! 

After the show on Saturday, we were able to walk around together -
watching these flippers on trampolines! 

They were pretty fun to watch! 

We saw a Dordt College booth at the Varied Industries Building -
passed out fidget spinners to the alumni :)

Little Hands on the Farm 







A bomb pop at the end was their choice! 


We went back to the camper for a nap and changed into swimsuits for the fountain!
Avery changed but never made it into the water - still too sleepy :(

Aubrey enjoyed the water for a little while! 

She was a crab for awhile...

Grandpa giving Aubrey some tips :)


 Grandpa and Noah, Dad and Avery (Aubrey still at the top)

Avery was NOT happy she had to ride with Dad
(NOTICE HER SHOE THAT SHE CHUCKED!) - OH MY WORD! 

Aubrey finally made it down with Avery's second shoe! HA! 



Avery snapped out of her crabby funk when it was time for rides!

She chose these bumper boat - 
it was too funny, she kept spinning in circles and she just smiled away! 

Avery's first "roller coaster" - she was SO EXCITED! 


The "Dragon Wagon" - they loved it! 

Girls in the front row and can't stop smiling! 



Aubrey chose to go on the trampoline jumpers! 

Getting ready to jump and feeling nervous :)

She was a little scared, but had fun! 




When you're tired of walking after a LONG day, you lay on the ground! 


Aubrey's turn to take a picture of "Journey."

Playground with Dad on Sunday! 

One extra time for "Little Hands on the Farm" for Aubrey!
