For My Dad

On Saturday, our biweekly cleaning day, we decided to skip out and head over to the State Fair grounds.  Every year the Minnesota Street Rod Association hosts a "Back to the 50's" car show for car enthusiasts throughout the world.  I'm emphasizing "world" because it is the largest collector's car show in the world that spans 3 days.  Over 11,000 cars were registered for the show!  I'm not a fan of collector cars, but we got the bug and wanted to see what all the hype is about.

Boy, did we get to see what all the hype is about....

We went searching, searching, searching for a 1960 2-door Impala, but this was not the one.

We found that Gabe really likes Mercuries.  He has no particular make or year.  He just likes them all!

Again, we thought we'd found the right Impala, but this was not it either!

Finally!  They found the car!

A 1960 2-door, hard top Impala that we found just for you, TX Grandpa!

The boys loved looking with their eyes and not their hands.

Some of us had to have a cat nap here and there.

The grass is never this luscious during the State Fair!
I was really loving the overcast weather.  Naturally diffused light is the best for getting great shots!

I think it was well worth skipping the housecleaning!
