We stayed in downtown St. Paul. This picture of the Mississippi was taken through our window, so maybe not the best pic, but what an awesome view!
By 3:00 in the afternoon we were ready to take a break. Look at the crowd! They had record breaking attendance and the cooler weather may be why!
This is as close as we get to the midway! We spend most of our time wondering through all the exhibits, from the Fine Arts to the Techie Building. We also have to find my favorite foods because what is a Fair without food! I also know autumn is almost here because all my apple trees are now ripe! I need to get back out and pick some more but in the mean time....
This little fellow waits his turn
While Dad fills up his stomach! I thought this pic was kind of neat since I caught him right in the act! See that red round thing in his mouth? HA! And see the nice set of antlers he is growing? Looks like some lucky hunter may have a nice tasting deer come this November. I only wish you were all closer, especially Cuisine Kathleen. She is always asking how her apples are coming along. I wish you could all come pick some! My Mom has 3 ripe trees herself so I can't give any to her. We have been slicing and freezing a lot of them and I need to get some of my family here this week-end to spread them out! Now go visit our lovely hostess Susan by clicking on the link above. There will be oodles of Outdoor pics to explore!! Cindy
