You know that painting "American Gothic" with the farmer and his wife and pitchfork....you know.... that one that gets replicated all the time with them holding different thing besides the pitchfork....? Anyone? Anyone out there?
If you saw said painting, you'd know what I'm talking about.... it looks kinda like this?
Except... this version is 25 feet tall! (and very cool I might add!) And it's at the Indiana State Fair (among a TON of other cool things!)
You can nearly see right up their noses! (yes, I'm a grown adult and yes, I still find that kind of humor funny)
Look at that... the statue is even painted to look like the painting... ummm... well, you know what I mean.
Moral of the story blog is this -- it's cool and you should go see it!
(you can see more of the cool stuff happening at the Indiana State Fair here! It's the Year of Pigs!)
Oh, but how? where do I find the tickets? I can't afford to pay for 4 tickets for my family AND buy the kiddos all the cotton candy they can shove in their mouths! What is a person to do?!!!

I live with a camera around my neck and dog hair on my clothes. I normally have some sort of manure on my shoes, a GPS tacked to the windshield and my BlackBerry in hand. I’m on the move and if you aren’t coming with me, kindly flip on your turn signal and move over to the right lane.
I am a crew guy’s wife, a farmer’s daughter (and granddaughter), a sister to one and sister-in-law to several. I’m a cousin to countless folks, and an aunt to a whole herd of precious little ones that know just how to steal my heart and breath at the exact same time.
My family is a big one and at the helm of it is one awesome God. We’re crazy and we’re loud, but we’re in it for the long haul.
