Bella: Fair Veteran

I can confidently say that Bella has enjoyed her two days so far at the State Fair. This is her watching the parade. She was unphased by the incredibly loud marching band drum section that stopped right in front of her. She was highly entertained by those girls I always make fun of who twirl the flags around.

For more pics, you can look at our new Flickr site:

There is also a new movie for your viewing pleasure! This one, Bella July (14M), documents her camping trip and her trip to the cabin. I took a bunch of video today at the fair, so hopefully we'll have a good one coming on that topic.

The fair is incredibly awesome, as usual. I feel like I was born to take Bella to the fair. To shop with her, look at giant pumpkins with her, watch pitch men with her, and to feed her lefse in a little mesh teether bag. And in that little Heritage Square bonnet, isn't she such a cute fair goer? Her onesie says Minnesota State Fair, but you can't see it.

Also, for the many saddened bloggers who wrote about the closing of the Penny Arcade... I don't know how to break this to you, but it's still there. So that was a big waste of emotion. It is just slimmed down to make room for a giant butterfly extravaganza.


  1. Pffft, you just can't trust the press.

    Isn't lefse already a teether bag?

  2. Mmm, lefse. What kind? Cinnamon-sugar? Butter and brown sugar? Surely sugar was involved? I'm so glad you guys went and had a good time. I can't wait to hear more!! And to see the movie! Or, better yet, movies!!

    In any case, yum, yum. There is no lefse here, unsurprisingly. We're having hamburgers tonight because (somewhat uncreatively) it's the most American dinner we can think of, which is, in turn, the closest we can get to the fair without a deep fat fryer.

    Oh, and FYI, we've been looking at plane tickets, and we're contemplating this schedule:

    Mpls --> Rome: November 1-ish 2006
    Rome --> Mpls: mid-August 2007

    So as to go to the Fair!! I've promised Jed that in return for indulging my Rome fantasies and missing the Fair, we'll return to MN next August and go to the Fair EVERY SINGLE DAY. Sound good?

  3. damn, Did Bella steal all of the cute? She's like pure concentrated cuteness.

    Oh and hats... I've learned from Kate that babies were made for wearing cute hats.

  4. Yeah, what is that thing on her head? It's not a leopard skin pillbox hat, but I wonder what her head feels like under something like that.

  5. Just wanted to let you all know that even though people move about and change we all still remain the same... Mmmmm Casa Lupita.
