Explore a summer tradition in Iowa through my childhood memories and current experiences as I return to the Buena Vista County Fair in northwest Iowa. The food, the people and the enjoyment of simple things make for a perfect summer day.
My legs hurt, my arms hurt, my stomach hurts, and I am tired. Today I am recovering from a 12-hour-day at the Iowa State Fair. I know, for some people, this is a pretty amateur effort but I packed in as much fun as I could!
