Great State Fair of Texas

We took advantage of Steve having a Friday off for BU's Fall Break and headed up to the State Fair. This is an annual tradition for us and we enjoy getting to experience all that the state fair has to offer including yummy food (fried of course!), fun animal shows, shopping, and the show at Music Hall. This year Karen and Anna went with us and we enjoyed showing Anna, who is from Germany, around the fair.
One of our favorite shows the bird show. It's always fun to see.
This year we were there for the rabbit judging. This little one is appropriately called a "lion head" rabbit.
Although we didn't try it the big winner in food was Fried Butter ( I don't think so!). There was always a long line to try some out. We did enjoy a corny dog and funnel cake.

Bill Geist, CBS reporter, was there and enjoying some of the same events we did.

We LOVED the fair show this year, Mary Poppins. Steve and I saw the original production in London and thought the US tour was even better!

And at the end of the day this is how we felt... full, happy and tired!
