Once we were done with Harley we were Fair bound. It was such a beautiful day outside. It got a little hot but i'm always hot so whats new. We arrived just a little after noon so first thing to do was get in line for a Fletcher's corny-dog. Eating a corny dog is a tradition for the fair since i was a kid. Our schools in Dallas actually gives free tickets to the kids and specific fair day for the schools to go to. Its a big deal!
The great thing about our fair is to see what the latest craziest thing they are frying up this year. Y'all, the options were limitless. Seriously! I didnt take pictures of even a quarter of the weird fried booths.
I also have to have a funnel cake and Tornado tator twister to go with my corny dog every year (fair days is NOT the day to count calories). Towards the end of the day when we had some time for our other snacks to settle, we wanted to try a few fried desserts that we've never had before. I had the fried snickers bar last year and it was tasty. So, i had the fried pineapple upside down cake and it was AWESOME!It had a round pineapple ring in the middle so it was almost healthy, right?! I have to say that the show stealer this year for us was the deep fried samoa girlscout cookie. Y'all , my mouth is watering just telling you about it! The cookie melted inside so it was warm chocolate goodness and then they topped it off with more toasted coconut. I swear, one of the best things that i've put in my mouth and belly!
Todd and i rode our large Texas Star ferris wheel and it so clear in Dallas , we could see for miles. It's my favorite ride because it goes slow and you get a great view of the city. This weekend was also Texas/Ou weekend which is a very very big traditional game in the Cotton Bowl. I didnt take a pic of OU simply for principle. HAHA. I have many family members that were longhorns so i am pretty biased.( unfortunately OU beat Texas really bad in yesterday's game. Boo). After we got our free cookies from the girl scouts booth and checked out all the car show's, we had had a pretty full day. I had so much fun and i'm happy that my honey and i had a great Date Night that lasted all day.
Have a great week- talk to ya soon!
