Iowa State Fair 2009
OK~ We ventured to Des Moines for the day- I hit Macsworldlive.com from 10:00 a.m.-Noon. Had a great time! I dropped two of my boys, hubby and 14 year old, off at the West Iowa State Fair gates. I then returned around 1:15 p.m. to "retrieve" them! If you have never been- the Iowa State Fair is an Iowa tradition. If you life in Iowa, or another state, this fair is the ultimate! They got along much better without me, as I cannot walk near as fast as they can. The $250,000 tractors seemed to be a highlight of their day. They also commented on the amount of people inside the fair gates. Beings this was Saturday and so many schools in Iowa returned to the classrooms this past week, it made sense they would be busy on the final week-end. I did notice several families heading out of the gates with strollers and I can honestly say that I do not miss those days! I want my boys to become responsible, independent adults and pray each day that they will achieve this goal that I have set for them! What do you think? After all, it's all in a Mom's Day, right?
