Luggage made out of the Metrodome’s old right-field wall (affectionately known to Minnesotans as the “baggie”) isn’t the only glimpse of the state’s sporting life happening at the Minnesota State Fair this year. The four newest members of the Minnesota Timberwolves visited, too. Even better, Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, Thaddeus Young and Zach LaVine documented their adventures on Twitter and Vine. It looks like they had a lot of fun.

Well, maybe it took some warming up. Here’s LaVine looking a little iffy while being hugged by a cartoon corndog.

But things maybe turned around when he tasted Tim’s Tiny Donuts.

The fun really started, though, when the new players kicked butt at the water balloon toss.

Then LaVine and Andrew Wiggins had fun on this giant slide.

In the meantime, Young had a snack.

Bennett followed suit.

And it looks like he liked it.

Later, LaVine said this:

And he proved he was a man of his word.

Young summed the experience up for everyone.
