One of my all time favorite things to do in the fall is visit the State Fair. Yesterday was dollar day if you brought canned goods. I was all about that!
State Fair of Texas Memories
We had a mommy and daughter day. No boys allowed! It was nice taking our time and having girly fun.
I had to laugh at how calm she was at the Little Hands on the Farm exhibit. I’m so used to my son running through everything like it’s a race. We’ll have to go back and ride the wild rides with my son and husband later. This day was all about the animals and food!
The Back Yard Circus.
My little one sat up front with her friends. I was so annoyed at a girl who sat next to my daughter. She had a giant piece of cotton candy. When she would run out, she would go back to her mom and get more. I was waiting for my daughter to throw a fit that she didn’t have any. I mean, it was candy and PINK her favorite.
She’s giving her the eye. The big girl is NOT giving in to her stare.
No crying! Thankfully the show started and there was more to look at than pink cotton candy.
On our way to look at the animals!
This guy weighs 1200 lbs!
Speaking of pigs… I made it my mission to try as many fried foods as my stomach would allow!! I was glad to have my friend Toby to help me eat all these goodies! Yeah, we made his wife sick:-)
Mmmmm.. Chicken Fried Bacon. Can you say heart attack??
My favorite! Deep Fried Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough covered in chocolate, powdered sugar and nuts!
Strawberries dipped in waffle batter, deep fried, then dipped in chocolate and deep fried again!
More Yummy Food!
Other fun stuff…
Check out my Flickr page for more State Fair pics. I took way too many!
