State Fair of Texas

Hello! I've been meaning to post these photos for the past 2 weeks or so, but I've been busy...Procrastinating =oD  I thought it was time though...Especially since Big Tex passed last week (may he RIP).

For those not familiar with the State Fair of Texas, for us (and I mean, most North Texans) it's a yearly tradition.  Schools get a fair day, TX-OU weekend goes down (this year UT was slaughtered) and we (our family) try to make it out to the fair each year to spend a ton of cash and basically commit one of the 7 deadly sins - GLUTTONY like nobody's business, hahaha...It's true! Every year there's a new fried food to try...And of course, lots of walking, drinking, car shows, rides, parades, fireworks, etc., etc., etc.  Here are a few shots from our iPhones of the things we saw this year.

The Texas Discovery Gardens had a special butterfly exhibit on the grounds...

Enjoying my very large Turkey Leg (everything IS bigger in TX after all)

(Psssst...other food we ate was: curly fries, fried plantains, fried bacon cinnamon roll, fried jambalaya, fried mexican firecrackers, pineapple ice cream, corn in a cup [mexican style] and a cucumber...See! Wasn't a lie about the gluttony)

I think the best part was the Chinese Lantern Festival this year...Most def!
