As we were picking dates for this trip, last January, we realized it would also be the week of the Wisconsin State Fair. At the time, that seemed like a great idea. The state fair is always a fun activity. I did not factor in that it would make getting a hotel or house rental tricky. Wade and I have been to the state fair numerous times over the years but we have never tried to meet up with two other families or stay together with this many people. I was a little doubtful that it would be possible, but we did manage to meet up (after a few misses) and then we easily walked the fair with 15 people and 2 strollers. I consider that quite the achievement. It was hot, but we found all the food, activities, games, and rides. It was a fun day. The state fair never disappoints.
I don’t have a good picture of this, but the best part of this day might be that our kids were all watched by friends (even Ben) while Wade and I went on a date! Our anniversary (14th) is this week and we celebrated with a dinner out tonight!
