Hello everyone! I hope you had an awesome weekend! We definitely did 🙂 We made it out to the Iowa State Fair yesterday with Monte and had a blast.
There are so many different things to do and see there with kiddos. Of course, we were not able to do and see everything. Monte could only handle being there for a few hours, but we surely jammed in a lot!
First stop, was the DNR building. I actually have never visited before and did not realize how many cool and kid friendly things they had. Inside the building they had multiple booths with different activities such as puzzles and coloring. In the center was a HUGE aquarium full of lots and lots of different fish!
Outside was an area with lots of ducks, geese and a few turtles to look at.
There was also a large nest with bald eagle eggs you could look at.
The Insect Zoo from Iowa State was pretty interesting too!
Afterwards, we headed over to a tent that was full of fun Legos to play with! Monte thought it was pretty fun.
We had to make a quick adult stop at the Craft Beer Tent.
We made our way to check out all of the animals including the boar and a very large pig!
Finally, we ended our time with running in the fountains. Monte wasn’t too sure at first …
But, by the end he was soaking wet. We stripped him out of his clothes and he enjoyed a bowl of fresh fruit 🙂
Overall, it was a very successful day at the Iowa State Fair! You should definitely check it out this week!
Have you taken your kiddos to the Iowa State Fair yet? What fun things did you do and see?
