The girls and I discovered a "new" part of the fair this year. The helping hands farm! The girls had a blast doing all the chores a farmer would do, along with selling produce at the market and earning money.
I love the Iowa state fair! I think I could go at least three times a year and be happy, but this year it was just once so we had to make all 10hrs count. And boy did we!
Massive photo warning!

|Can you tell he's excited!|
|Such a cutie in the car|
|I have a picture of Kiara on this same elephant when she was 2|
|He was so cool in his army gear|
|My kids love the fountains|
|This one makes me laugh! She's trying to put her head in the water|
|Getting ready to ride the dragon roller-coaster|
|look at the anticipation on her face!|
|She joyfully screamed the entire time|
Here's all the little hands on the farm photos...
|carefully selecting her "seeds" to plant|
|Kayla was eager to join the fun|
|Picking their veggies|
|she loved that basket full of veggies|
|getting busy driving the tractor|
|she thought it was great that she got to milk the cow and only water came out|
After selling their produce they both got a "dollar" to buy an item from the store, they choose bomb pops!
