Growing up near the Twin Cities meant that every few years in the wet heat of late August, we would pile into the Dodge Dart and drive into St. Paul. We'd pay to park on someone's lawn, then head to the state fair. We always seemed to enter passing the long, boring stretch of tractors and farm equipment. Although farm equipment is a big draw to State Fair nation-wide, it's the Spin Art, cotton candy and animal barns that held my interest as a kid.

Inexplicably, in September of 2000 I pined to go to the state fair. Since I had just missed it, I made sure I went in 2001. This time my Aunt Nancy, Uncle Mike and I grabbed an oh-so-conveinent bus. We had a delightful animal, attraction and food filled day. I took over 200 photos. These are my favorite 32.
