Farming at the Fair

Tonight we went to the Iowa State Fair! One of Everly's favorite stops was 'Little Hands on the Farm'. She got to plant and harvest veggies, feed and take care of livestock, and complete other farm chores.

Ralphie helped too
At the end she sold her items at the farmers' market and got a dollar to spend at their grocery store.  Hard work pays off!

Hot Air!

Last night we went to the Indianola Balloon Classic to watch the balloons come in! It was a beautiful evening!

These three balloons were inflated and took off right in from of us!
 Here they come! All of these balloons were coming in to compete and then landed in Balloon Field.

 Once they landed they stayed inflated and waited for it to get dark enough for

Everly was excited to get up close and see them! They ended up being a bit bigger and louder than she thought... so we got up close, just from a distance :)
