Indiana State Fair

Another activity we did while in Indy was the Indiana State Fair. I really love this state fair - very different than the Texas State Fair that I get to go to each year, and lots of fun. Here are some photos:

One activity we did there was very similar to an exhibit at the Texas State Fair - it's called "Little Hands on the Farm" in both places - it is slightly different, in that it has been individualized to match the farming habits of each region. LM had fun at the exhibit at both fairs, actually.

Another exhibit I have never seen in Texas...they birth cattle here all day long, all fair long.

They have holding pens where the "near to give birth" and the "just gave birth" cows hang out, and they bring them front and center to give birth with regularity. So, you can see that if you would like to, in great detail, and you can see little calfs that are minutes, hours and days old. Pretty cool.

Another large and cool exhibit at the Indiana fair is the Pioneer Village

LM really enjoyed listening to this early American music!

Then, there was the John Deere exhibit. 
About 20 times larger than the Texas one.
We spent a huge chunk of time here. Ahem.

LM tried out just about every machine.
And, if there was a seat belt, he wore it.

To him, this "driving" of the machines was serious business.
Seriously.

Then, I have about 12 of these, almost exactly alike.
Self portraits.

We pretty much ended our time at the kiddie rides.

Nana and LM rode this one together - see them toward the back there.

It was perfect weather and a nice time at the fair. I'm glad we were able to go.

See you soon!
