Big Tex is under that sheetCole is getting a little nervousWell... a lot nervous!Carson enjoying the golf cart... And he's up! Big Tex got a makeover this year including a yellow shirt and new boots!I attempted to keep Cole out of the water, but who am I kidding?Checking out the floats in Granddaddy and Niece's tent
I love everything about the fair; being outside, the car shows (even though I hated this when I was little and couldn't wait to get to the midway) the rides, and most of all... the food! I do not get excited about the new fair food each year, such as chicken-fried bacon, fried banana splits, etc. I am perfectly satisfied with the tried and true fair food... a Fletcher's corny dog, funnel cake, tornado twisters, and fresh-squeezed lemonade. You know... all of the healthy stuff!
After we left Fair Park, Deniece and I took the boys for lunch at Campisi's (my favorite) and then back to her house to feed the fish.Right after this, Cole fell into their hot tub.
The State Fair opens on Friday and I could not be more excited. My dad has taken me every year since I was a little girl, and now we take the boys at least once (usually a few times) each year. I am hoping Carson will be brave enough to ride the ferris wheel with me for the first time.
