Iowa State Fair

Yesterday was the opening day of the 150th Iowa State Fair. It was also the one month anniversary of my surgery. I went to the fair with my sister and niece, Marsha and Steph. I normally go to the first day of the fair by myself but this year I wasn't sure I could make it by myself so I asked them to come with me. We got there about 9 am and left about 9 pm so I made it about 12 hours. Last year I was there for about 14 hours.

We watched the opening ceremonies and dedication of the new fountain outside the Agriculture Building. We also got to watch a concert at the free KCCI stage. I saw the group Vocal Trash last year and was glad to see they were returning this year. Marsha seemed to enjoy them also.
