Sights and Smells at the Iowa State Fair
Captain got a day off and we headed north. We made it as far as Des Moines and decided to take in the Iowa State Fair. Everyone's tummy was happy with greasy brats, handmade strawberry ice cream, 3 flavors of salt water taffy, and fresh squeezed lemonade. We saw the large butter sculptures, the champion ram, and a big boar weighing 1,200 lbs. That is "some pig."
