State Fair Fun

Jim took off last Thursday and we headed down to the State Fair of Texas. Or "the state of texas fair" according to Jacob. We had a great time and the kiddos had fun as well.

Howdy folks!

Of course we had to indulge in a Fletchers corny dog. So worth the calories!

Waiting our turn for the ferris wheel. Despite the long faces, they really were excited about it! :)

The boys loved it. Mommy- not so much. I have been on this many times in the past but I must have a fear of heights now b/c I couldn't look out. I was a nervous wreck!

Watching a sea turtle feeding.

Jacob just had to have a candy apple.

Very cool pumpkin carvings.

Jacob volunteered to be a part of the Mother Goose Story time.

They loved the bumper cars...all 3 of them!

Sweet Sarah did this the majority of the day.


  1. Oh what fun! I love outings like that with the entire family. It looks like everyone had a blast, even Sarah. :-) And I completely relate to your ferris wheel trepidation. I was the SAME way last year at the rodeo ferris wheel, and I doubt it was nearly that high! We are getting to be fuddy duddies in our old age, ha!

  2. It has been perfect weather for a visit to the Fair! So glad you had a great time (excpet the ferris wheel). You are making memories that will last a lifetime!

  3. Looks like you guys had fun. I'm so proud of Jacob for volunteering. How cute! Sarah looks precious with her bow and all snuggly in the sling. I need to try mine again with Ryan. He might be too fat for it. Ha! Good for you guys for getting out and doing something fun!
