The boys were very excited for our trip, because we were going to visit Dairy Carrie's farm. If you aren't already following Dairy Carrie, you really should especially if you love pictures of cute baby calves in your newsfeed! In case you don't know, the boys and Carrie have had a close bond ever since this cow experience brought the 3 of them together.
When in Wisconsin you have to buy cheese. We stopped at the Alp and Dell Cheese factory and store in Monroe. If you are looking for a great selection of cheeses, Tony will not disappoint you. The Chipotle Gouda makes the most amazing nachos!
I was told that having a Cream Puff was absolutely necessary by more than one person, so of course we had to go to the Cream Puff Pavilion. That's right there is an entire building dedicated to the Cream Puff at the Wisconsin State Fair!
You can walk by the windows where they cut pastries all day long.
And the window into the room that must be chilly where they are filling the pastries with yummy filling.
Don't they look yummy?
The Natural Resources area was really cool with archery practice, education about the Emerald Ash Borer, Watersheds, Smoky Bear School and so much more. We loved it!
Of course after the fair we had to go back to the dairy and work, well only one of us was really into becoming a dairy farmer.
We are working on our list of must have eats at the Kansas State Fair and I am considering opening a Cream Puff Booth when my kids are done showing out there...they still a few years ahead of them, so I can work on my business plan. LOL
Be sure to follow along on Facebook as we graze our way across the fair and hopefully win a blue ribbon, too!
