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.
