Finley goes to the Fair

Several years ago, Paul introduced me to the concept of a county fair. Even though my mom says she took me when I was a child, I have no memory of going to a fair and seeing farm animals close up before in my life. Since this was a highlight of our dating years, I wanted to make sure we introduced Finley to the fair early on.

We met a bunch of my coworkers and their children at the fair last Friday. It started with a pot belly pig race. The pigs were put into starting gates and raced around a small track.

Then they reconfigured the track and had the pigs jump into a water obstacle. It was hilarious!

Finley got to see all kinds of animals at the fair - horses, pigs, cows, goats and her favorite - rabbits.

Can't wait until next year!!!

Well, I'm skipping over the majority of our summer activities since keeping up with this blog is apparently not my forte. In the past few months we have gone on vacation with all the Finley's to North Carolina, spent many fun weekends with friends and family and learned to enjoy the summer with a little one crawling around.

This past weekend we traveled to Minnesota for our annual baseball trip. We drove out on Thursday and Finley was a trooper! We stopped at some touristy rest stop in Wisconsin for Finley to stretch her legs.

In Minnesota, we went to the Mall of America where I met my childhood hero, Omar Vizquel.

Finley did not go to the baseball game with us but we enjoyed our kid-free night!
