It's State Fair Time!

One of the many great things about living in Texas is going to the State Fair in the fall!  We are still enjoying several "firsts" with Joelle, and the fair did not disappoint!  

Of course we ate LOTS of food... who doesn't?!

 We tried out all of the gadgets that are far too expensive for this family.
 And, Joelle LOVED feeding the animals :)
 She was a little surprised about how large camels are in real life :)
 The ABC song she sings at school has Yakkity Yak in it, so this guy was a fav of hers!
 Everyone loves a zebra!
 We waited until the sun went down to ride any rides.  She was *patiently* waiting for that moment :)

 On our first ride!

 I about choked her to death on every ride.  I waited far too long for this girl to let her fall out!!!
 It was definitely a success!
 Her first solo ride!
 Riding with friends!

 I was NOT thinking before I agreed to do this slide.  We had to walk all the way up there... and, ummmm I haven't worked out in MONTHS!
 But it was definitely worth it!
We may have tummy-aches from eating too much, but we enjoyed every minute of it!
