it's fair time in iowa!

a 6-year old's wordless covetousness.

gus, sophie and i spent our last day of summer vacation at the iowa state fair...and it was goooood. we always love the fair: food on a stick, large mammals, obscenely expensive yet surprisingly fun carnival games--all the things that make iowa in the summer great. this year our culinary endeavors only strayed to a pork chop on a stick and a couple of corn dogs, but they were super tasty. next year i'm trying the fried oreos.

spin art!

flying high above some serious farm equipment and a shit-ton of ag science

miniature flurries/sundaes

miniature skylift chairs

miniature motorcycle, literally

bouncy cords--the amazing thing about this picture is that gus is actually doing it, too

it didn't take sophie long to figure out how to properly use these

games! gus won sophie a stuffed clownfish on this froggie-in-the-lilypad game

yes, yes, we all love boobies

given the opportunity, gus would stay here all. day. long.

shooting star

bumper cars!

sophie had a blast--i think she liked the freedom of finally driving her own car...

...whereas gus took the challenge of bumper car a bit too seriously...but loved it in his own way
