State Fair of Texas

9 10 2008

One of my all time favorite things to do in the fall is visit the State Fair. Yesterday was dollar day if you brought canned goods.  I was all about that! IMG_2214 by you.

We had a mommy and daughter day. No boys allowed!  It was nice taking our time and having girly fun. 

I had to laugh at how calm she was at the Little Hands on the Farm exhibit. I’m so used to my son running through everything like it’s a race.  We’ll have to go back and ride the wild rides with my son and husband later. This day was all about the animals and food!

My little one sat up front with her friends. I was so annoyed at a girl who sat next to my daughter. She had a giant piece of cotton candy. When she would run out, she would go back to her mom and get more. I was waiting for my daughter to throw a fit that she didn’t have any. I mean, it was candy and PINK her favorite.

She’s giving her the eye. The big girl is NOT giving in to her stare.

No crying! Thankfully the show started and there was more to look at than pink cotton candy.
