We (Grandma Stogdill, Jeri, Tim, and Josiah) headed out at 8:30 from Grandma’s house and got to the fair a little after 9:00 AM. After getting we got weighed, Grandma bought a fresh cinnamon roll to share.
Next Tim and Josiah headed to the MidAmerican Energy hall to pick up our free fidget spinners (for the first 1000 visitors). Jeri and Grandma met Jonathan and Rachel at the gate.
Jonathan, Rachel, and Josiah went to the DNR Building to do archery…but they didn’t have it this year. Next they went to the Horse Barn. We walked through the Varied Industries Building and saw some of the vendors and their demonstrations.
Tim and Jeri caught a magic show by Steve Trash. Some acts were good. A few were exceptional.
Grandma, Jeri, and Tim sat outside the church during the hymn sing. We watched the chainsaw wood carver next to the church.
Tim and Jeri went to get two veggie corn dogs and deep fried veggies for lunch. We saw Jonathan, Josiah, and Rachel on the Sky Glider.
The place where we got the veggie dogs is in the background.
We did a lot of walking today. The weather was nice…temps in the mid-80s and a nice breeze with some clouds.
Jonathan got some nachos for lunch. Here he is eating them in the Cultural Center courtyard.
Rachel got a henna tattoo in the Cultural Center. Josiah made a candle. We watched a pottery demonstration there too.
One prize winner was made from Lego. (I guess that the correct usage is not to pluralize Lego.) The model honored Desmond T. Doss, the conscientious objector, upon whom the movie, Hacksaw Ridge, was made.
Josiah made a candle. The scent was Candy Cane. When we got home, he gave the candle to Grandma.
There was a pottery demonstration. Here is Josiah pointing to the pot.
The Cultural Center was air conditioned. So it was a nice place to relax inside.
Josiah met some kids climbing.
Then Tim sat with Josiah to watch the Steve Trash magic show again.
They then went back to the Cultural Center to watch wood turning.
The guy was making a wooden Christmas Tree.
Jeri went with Grandma to get some ice cream. Then we met at the Food Center, sat and enjoyed some air conditioning, then headed home.
Finally around 4:30 PM or so, we headed home.
Here’s Josiah, the proud owner of his first fidget spinner.
