Steele County Free Fair

If you grew up near or in Owatonna, you know that the Steele County Free Fair is the place to be in mid-August!  So, we had to make a stop there this year with Tryg.  We went to the fair last Saturday when we happened to be in town for my cousin's "family bridal shower".  Tryg enjoyed his first cheese curds and time playing with his cousins at the shower.

 Tryg loves tractors and was happy to find this one while the other cousins were on the swings.
 After the shower, we got a chance to visit my Grandpa in the nursing home he was staying in.  He is out of the nursing home now but was there for two weeks as he recovered from a fall and a minor stroke.  Since the nursing home was right next to the Fair, we were able to steal him and get some ice cream at the fair with him! :)  Tryg held Great Grandpa's hand in the elevator.  So sweet.

Green Family

So, one day when I got home from work and saw Erik and Tryg, I just had to laugh...

We had all gotten dressed at different times that morning and thought nothing of our clothing choices.  Well, when we all stood next to each other that evening, it was a bit comical.

Oompa Loompa

Our little man covered himself in orange sauce last night while eating his ravioli.  He was beginning to resemble the Oompa Loompa (or Umpa Lumpa) orange/tan faces before long.

We gave him a bath in the kitchen sink (our new favorite bath spot) and his eyebrows were still orange after his bath!
