Texas State Fair

We came, we saw, we even cheered a pig race. This is a series of posts to walk you through our trip to the state fair. If you'd like to check it out, great. If not, well, I'm sure that back button on your computer is working just fine, too. ;)
Tessa and I took the train to meet Jake, have a quick picnic dinner, and get a move on. Since I showcase some of the bigger things we did in lower posts, here are some other sights we caught along the way:


Car show.




















Why bother with fried food when there is ice cream to be had?















The butter sculpture was Egyptian themed in honor of King Tut's current showing in Dallas. What a great way to welcome the ol' pharoah.
We didn't stay at the pig races very long because the announcer would not shut up. He wouldn't shut up and he kept laughing at himself.

You are really a cute family. No need to use the back button--it's fun to look at the pictures and get a glimpse at the fun you had at the fair!

I have been waiting for the State Fair updates, since we didn't make it to a fair this year it made up for it, the dog dancing is killer.
