Yesterday I took a break and went to the State Fair of Texas. Hubby and I haven't been in YEARS and my daughter had the day off from work (plus teachers get free tickets), so we went.
It was crowded, but there were ample lots for parking. Like all fairs everywhere, there was food. I ate weird food that I would never in a million years eat anywhere else.
Chicken on a stick and sausage on a stick. I had chicken, my husband had sausage.
My daughter had a frito pie.
We saw a HUGE turkey in a cage.
Lots of treats (I meant to go back and buy a loaf of that awesome blueberry bread!) We ate some more. (Giant Corny dogs!)
Flying flags (Did you know that Texas is the only state in the US that is legally allowed to fly the state flag at the same height as the American flag?
I got to sit in an awesome Camaro convertible. I'd so buy this car in a heartbeat if I had a massive garage and could afford to own like six different cars! Love the orange color.
There were sculptures and exhibits and it was a huge fair.
(The light was bad from the front, so I took one from the back too. A kid came up to me and wanted to know why I was taking a picture of Big Tex's butt!)
All in all, it was a fun day. We will have to try and go more often - maybe once every few years instead of letting fifteen or so go by.
