I Went to the Iowa State Fair.

Things I accomplished at the Iowa State Fair.
I held an alligator.

I added to my smashed penny collection.

We watched a professional flint knapper make this knife out of flint.  AMAZING.

Comprehensive list:  Hand fed zebra, saw the world's smallest horse (30 pounds, squeeeee!), got harassed by a carnie, rode horrifying fair rides at the midway, ate a deep friend snicker bar and a GIANT turkey leg, found the world's grossest port-o-potty and decided I could hold it, saw a life sized cow carved out of butter, pet a baby cow for five minutes, drank at the Iowa craft beer tent, watched several bands preform, heat exhaustion, watched my friends and family throw axes, bought two beaver skulls for 7 bucks, found out that baby camels are possibly the most awkward looking animal on god's green earth.  OUT.  Peace. 


  1. I think it is awesome that you got to hold an alligator! I have sat on a big one. Does that count for anything? ha ha

  2. lol, I'm pretty sure that counts. This guy was a mere four months old and was still soft to the touch. So cute...too bad they get so big.
