State Fair

Last post of pictures for now....yesterday I went to the State Fair with my friend Sarah and her mom. Our only mistake was choosing TX/OU weekend to attend. When the game was over and 90,000+ people poured out of the Cotton Bowl, it was sheer craziness. Of course, we really go for all the fun fair food - some new creations each year, plus the old standbys. This year we tasted Fried Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Fried Smores, Fried Snickers, Fletcher's Corny Dogs, Sliders, Sweet Potato Fries, bread pudding, pizza and more!

Wow- I'm hoping you didn't get sick after all that fried food! But that's what the state fair is all about, right? We went last year and had a great time- of course we went for the game! Hook Em Horns!
