This is one of my favorite photos of my mom and I taken at the MN State Fair. She always has so much style. She is so strong, confident and an incredible woman. I love my momma! Happy birthday Mom, I love you 🌷 #mnstatefair#birthday#celebrate
IS IT SUMMER YET?
Since I've been daydreaming for weeks about the warm weather, I thought I'd put together a bucket list for Summer 2018. I’ll do one for the boys and then one for me (and Sean!)
I would like to say that I didn't feel the need to put ice cream on there... but that would be a lie! We already visited @lost_lake_creamery on Tuesday - HEY! It hit 40 degrees, get off my back. ;) I put a few on the list that we’ve never been to. If you didn't know this about me yet, I love dessert and when I was pregnant I ate malts every night for multiple months. I like to think they love treats as much as me!
Anyways, I put together a list of places I want to take H&L and activities that would be fun for us to do together! To find out what made the cut you will want to read my blog - link in bio.
Join us at the Gopher State Timing Association's Rod & Custom Spectacular at the Minnesota State Fair Coliseum this weekend April 14 & 15. We'll be offering “show specials” on mechanical repairs, body repair estimates, and detailing packages! #hotrod#classiccars

Driving through the fairgrounds out of season transports you to an abandoned town filled with empty buildings, clear streets, and the ability to create the sounds and smells of one of the greatest times of summer! #mnstatefair#greetings#minnesota#exploremn#10000lakes

Years ago, hanging out with @worldofwondersshow at the MN State Fair, and watching the performers on the bally stage.
In the first photo, Tomahawk Tassels is working as one of the snake handlers, with a red-tailed boa. In the second photo, @eryn_skye prepares to do a fire eating act. Yes, the fire is real.
This is what's called a grind show, when the performers do the same acts all throughout the day, taking breaks now and then to swap out with other performers.
World of Wonders is the oldest traveling sideshow, owned by Ward Hall and Chris Christ, and ran by Tommy Breen. Ward's been in the circus and sideshow industry for 70 or so years, ever since he ran off to join the circus as a young man.
The outside stage is referred to as the bally, and the bally acts serve to draw your interest toward the tent, where you'll catch a 10-in-1, ten different acts under one tent. Ward's formula for a successful bally stage is "a beautiful woman, snakes, and fire." Contrary to common belief, the "announcer" describing the acts is referred to as a "talker," not a "barker." More specifically, the bally talker is referred to as the "outside talker," as there's another talker inside the tent for the 10-in-1.
