We were thrilled to see the Friday forecast actually planning on sun and crisper weather, so we packed up F&B and headed to the fair! The kids were so excited to go too!
We had to hit the very first of our State Fair traditions and get corndogs right away. F&B posed with the corndogs in front of Big Tex and Ben kept asking why he wouldn't keep talking.
My little Texans took a whirl on a mechanical bull ...
And Ben got ready for Saturday's Texas-OU game. He even picked his outfit by himself that morning, he told me that he was going to wear his "Texas shirt and Texas hat". The nice bull-riding cowboy gave him the UT beads to match.
There was a pretty cool Lego display this year and the kids got to drive 4 different activities to earn stickers.
Our yearly measurement with Big Tex--Faith is up to 50 inches.
Ride time! The airplanes were new, I think.
They both love the firetruck ride and Ben was finally tall enough to ride on the ladder part to shoot water!
One of the race car rides, the other one I take pictures in every year was replaced by a bouncy bus. :o(
