Yee Haw..Ya'll!

October 10, 2009

After living in Dallas for four years we finally went to the State Fair. The State Fair is such a big deal around here, especially where we live because literally it is only minutes away from us. Ethan and Eliana had a blast seeing all the rides in the Midway and seeing everything the fair has to offer. We took them to a petting zoo where they had a zebra, baby giraffe, Texas longhorn, buffalo, and many more animals. Ethan was a bit overwhelmed by all the people in there, but Josh said Eliana loved the animals! We went to the car show for Ethan (he loved it), saw a parade, went to a little backyard circus show, and Josh and I ate really bad food. It is not Texas without finding the most fattening food and making it worse by making it fried (i.e.fried Cheesecake, fried snickers, fried oreos, fried butter (yes..butter!), and on and on. We tried the fried cheesecake and fried Snickers and let me tell you they were good! Oh and I wanted a turkey leg..the thing was ginormous! We saw Big Tex and the big Ferris wheel..the two things I remember about the State Fair. The kids loved the huge Ferris wheel. I can't wait to take them on it someday!

There were tons of people
I was having to hold Eliana up so our heads were not exactly on the right place;-)!
Yummy..turkey leg!
