As a running friend says, You’re either a fair person, or you’re not a fair person.
I’m a 4-Her. I am definitely a fair person. Thankfully, Kelly is, too.
Big Tex – the fair wasn’t the same without you in 2012.
Texas dairy farmers making free strawberry smoothies…yum.
We pet a baby crocodile!!!
Me: Can I have a pet chicken?
Kelly: You ask that every year. And every year the answer is no.
I’ll bet people who loved her never said she couldn’t have a pet pig. Life is so unfair.
Canstruction moved from NorthPark Center to the State Fair this year. It was convenient for us to tour all of the can sculptures while we were there, but I’m not sure the exhibit overall got as much foot traffic as it used to.
Kelly: Can I have the new 2015 Mustang?
Me: Yes – when you can pay cash for it.
Fletcher’s Corny Dog – the original, with mustard, as God intended.
Weird State Fair Food #1: Funnel cake beer. Oddly, it did taste like funnel cake and it had powdered sugar on the rim.
Weird State Fair Food #2: Fried Chili Frito Pie. Good but dry unless you used sour cream.
Weird State Fair Food #3: Fried pumpkin pie. Ah-maz-ing.
State Fair portrait attempt #1: Why does he goof around every.time.I.take.a.photo!?!?!
State Fair portrait attempt #2: That’s better. (And that’s a wrap for the State Fair of Texas 2014!)
