"Our State Fair is a great State Fair"

"Don't miss it, don't even be late!"

Does anyone know that song AND what amazing, classic movie it's from? State Fair, of course! I love that movie!

We went to the Texas State Fair yesterday! A first time for all of us! We had a blast and I took so many pictures, so be prepared for a long one ;)

Emma all ready to go!
 Clinton had to try out the pitching contest!

Made the leader board!
Em was our navigator!
All excited for her first ride!

Then we had to try out the fried food!

He tried this year's winner, fried jambalaya. He was disappointed.
I tried the chicken fried bacon. It was pretty darn good!
Me and my girl!

We wondered around and found a cute little puppet show, farm animals, and lots of exhibits. Emma's favorite was the Little Hands Farm, where she had do farm chores. I thought it was super cute, so I took a lot of pictures!

Picking peaches.
Feeding the chickens and gathering eggs.

Planting vegetable seeds.
She got to choose one vegetable.
She chose a carrot.
Driving her tractor.
Feeding the pigs.
Taking her items to the market!
They "paid" her with a "dollar", which she got to spend in the store for a snack. She passed all the healthy stuff and picked Cheetos. Of course.

Then we headed back to the Midway for more fun!

World's Largest Grill- look at all those turkey legs! Yum!

She had that perma-grin!
Love her facial expressions on this ride!

Hugging her Minnie Mouse prize! She won the ball, too!
A little break for playing! (and funnel cake! Ha!)
This was our cue to go...
 But first, Clinton had to check the leader board...

He's still on there, but he had to try to better!
Men! Ha!
