Thank you for coming to the St. Croix County Fair

We just got back from my family reunion in Baldwin, Wisconsin. It was a lot of fun to see all my aunts, uncles and cousins, and Larry got to meet them for the first time. This is probably a good time to mention that we got engaged about a month ago, so everyone was asking him lots of questions, congratulating us, etc. And of course they all loved him, because really, who doesn't like Larry?

My cousin Jennah was showing her horse at the county fair, so we went over on Saturday and Sunday to watch her and check out the fair. Larry had never been to a county fair, and I hadn't been to one in several years, so we had to go through ALL of the buildings (even the smelly ones), see the exhibits and eat lots of fair food. We took my cousins Brooke and Luke along on Sunday and checked out the rides and games. Word of advice--never ride the Tilt-a-Whirl directly after eating a corndog and deep-fried cheese curds. Trust me on this!

Here are some of my favorite photos from the fair:

SO cute!

Aww, so dainty.

The best slogan ever

Fair food and then the Tilt-A-Whirl?? You are WAY braver than I ever thought. Hmm...reminds me...Peony Park, I miss you. :)

Speaking of county fairs, I've spent the last few days shooting at this place called Medieval Times which is a 365 days a year-type Renaissance Faire with big, greasy chicken drumsticks and the like. Working on NBC's "Last Comic Standing" until early August...
