Texas State Fair

I'm a Texan now. And as a Texan it is my duty to attend the great Texas State Fair and eat all of the fried foods I possibly can. So that is exactly what we did on Sunday, October 14th. We have sort of made it a tradition to go with the Mitchell's. This tradition has nothing to do with the free tickets they provide, it is because we love them!;) Chris and Haley really are amazing friends, and we do love them! This year we parked in Grand Prairie and rode in on the TRE. It was great not having to deal with any traffic, and much cheaper than paying for parking! While I was in the shower, hubs ran to Einstein Bros Bagels to get breakfast. Pumpkin bagel with pumpkin spice cream cheese...he is the best!

We were so excited about the fair! And the weather was absolutely perfect that day! This is us riding into Dallas on the TRE.

First things first-- a picture with Big Tex! We are glad we got this picture because he burned down that Friday. Electrical fire--oops!
And this is the ridiculously long line for a Fletcher's corny dog! My favorite food at the fair. We waited and got them later on the day because this line was crazy!
MMMmmm and here it is! Mustard is the ONLY way to eat them. I am not much of a ketchup person.

It looks like Boris has eaten way too much fair food. He is LARGE!

We spend most of the fair walking around looking at exhibits and listening to to live music. Oh, and eating plenty of fried food. Don't judge us but this year between the two of us we ate frito pie, sausage on a stick, fried autumn pumpkin pie, two lemonade shake ups, and two corny dogs. Yum. And yuck, all at the same time! We usually ride the Texas Star but we had a train home to catch. We will see you next year, great State Fair of Texas!
