State Fair

Mia made her debut trip to the MN state fair this year - and she loved it so much we took her back the next weekend! Since grandpa Jon is such a fair nut, he made sure to come up and go with us the second time - and then proceeded to introduce Amelia to all sorts of loud and smelly animals!

While there, we also saw Liz, who convinced Mia that she needed to become a FFA'er someday!

While at the fair, she visited uncle Dan in the Miracle of Birth Center where he was taking photographs of kids (and some adults) holding various baby animals. Mia really wanted to have her picture taken with a piggy (just like Piglet!), so we laid her down on a hay bale and introduced her to her first baby pig! Since the photos are copyrighted, I can't share those, but we did manage to get a video. At the end, when Daniel's head is partly blocking the shot, the piggy actually walks across Mia's back. That pretty much ended the photo shoot. Luckily, we got some great shots before that!

The video is pretty cute. That piglet was so nonchalant about the whole thing...
