Last year the Stepanovs came up for the second weekend in October and we all headed to the State Fair. This year, we decided to do it again! BUT this year, we had a surprise for the kids! We took the train to the fair!
Both boys said the train ride was their favorite part of the whole day!
Since the year we moved back to Texas (2009), my sister and her family have been coming up to stay the weekend of the UT/OU game. Will is a die hard UT fan.
We went the Friday before the big game to the State Fair. We were able to say "Hi" to Big Tex.
And go to the ever popular car shows. Gabe was super excited about this cowboy robot that hosted a few interactive games.
We saw a dog show and went to the petting zoo.
Since the "HUMP DAY"! commercials started, Pop Pop and I send a camel picture to each other on Wednesdays - so the kids made sure I got a picture of the camel for Pop Pop!
We ate some deep fried, overpriced, yummy food and had a great time!!
We were all exhausted by the time we got home that night and dreamt happy dreams of train rides, giant cowboys, football rivalries and fried everything! Such fun!!
