State Fair of Texas

We went to the State Fair...twice. Once with bro and sis-in law, Dustin and Aubrey. I don't think Aubrey liked the four-horned sheep. Or the random gang of clowns we came upon. :-) But otherwise, as first-time Fair goers, I think they had a good time.We went again with my folks, which was lots of fun, since we didn't feel like we needed to rush to see everything and could go back to our favorites.
Mom and I watched the cooking demonstrations, and we shared a funnel cake too.Dad liked the burro. And Honor Society.
Casey kinda danced with the ostrich trying to pet it while it was distracted with the food cup. This was after the huge camel chomped on his finger...because Casey wanted to feel its lips. Seriously, that man is the dumbest-smart person I know.
"Pet the oinker!"-Casey. So we did. He was very soft and EXTREMELY cute. I think he was happy too. We saw the pig races too. Hysterical.
And speaking of pigs...I had to try the deep-fried pecan pie, after the corny dog, burger, funnel cake and sundry samples. Such the food baby. But it was so worth it. The Fair is the best.
