Iowa State Fair 2018

Grandma Stogdill treated us to a day at the Iowa State Fair. We arrived in the morning on opening day. We always start by getting weighed at the Varied Industries Building.

Here are Grandma Stogdill, Josiah, Nicole, Lizzie, Jeri and Tim after our weigh-in.

Next stop for Grandma, Jeri and Tim was to get a Pecan Cinnamon Roll. We had to wait awhile for them to make a fresh batch. In this picture, you can see the dough rolled up.

The Iowa Egg Council had a social media competition where you upload photos and tag it. Later Lizzie received a notice that she had won.

Because we saw how easy it was for this guy to make salsa that we bought one for ourselves. We’ve already used it several times.
