Our family enjoys one another’s company, so we go on family outings together all the time.

During Autumn we have an abundance of family traditions.

One such tradition is attending the State Fair.

Here’s a list of some of our very favorite things to see there.

 

 Little Hands on the Farm –  This is an interactive experience for the little ones where they get to do typical farm activities.  My grandkids just love it and it makes for some super cute pictures!

2.  Pigs –  I’ve been collecting pig figurines since I was just a girl and I have a collection of a couple hundred or more so naturally, I have a special fondness for the real thing.  This year they didn’t have any babies but most years they do.  Everyone loves an adorable litter of tiny piglets!

Oink!

3.  Animals –  We enjoy all of the animals, cows, horses, sheep, goats, chickens & miscellaneous farm fowl, and rabbits.

6.  Butter Sculpture – A life size butter sculpture is a really fun thing to see.  It is typically something pretty whimsical which makes it all the more fun.

7.  The Beehive – There is usually a beehive on display that everyone finds fascinating.  It has glass sides so you can see the honey combs and watch the bees at work.  There is also a tube where the bees can crawl out and then fly around.  Last year my daughter got stung by a bee at the fair and she insists it had to have been one from the hive on display!

8.  Spas – My hubby’s favorite thing to see is the Spas.  We have an old one we found in the classified and only paid $100 for!  After enjoying it for a year the motor (or something) went out so now we don’t have one.  :o(  Someday honey, someday soon.
