Last Friday, Todd and I had the day off because we were supposed to be going out of town for a quick trip to New Orleans. That got cancelled and so we took advantage of the beautiful day and went to the State Fair of Texas. We had not been in a few years and we both were excited to go again. We got there right around lunch time and so the very first thing we did was go get in line in one of the Fletcher corn dog stands. Now I am kinda funny about traditions. I HAVE to get mine from the stand that is directly in front of Big Tex. I’ve ALWAYS got my corny dog there even though there are dozens of other stands that have them. I also will only eat mine with mustard- No ketchup!!
We walked around most all of the exhibit buildings and our favorite are the car shows to see all the new models, and they the buildings are air-conditioned . It was really hot that day in the 90’s and super humid. We tried a fried Reeses peanut butter cup with ice cream as our quirky fried food. They had it all!! Fried lobster, fried red velvet cupcake, fried chicken fried bacon, you name it- it was there fried on a stick.
We also HAVE to ride the Texas Star Ferris wheel. Its one of the tallest in the US and it’s a great view of the city . Last week was also our huge rivalry college football weekend for Texas and OU. The Red River Rivalry. There was lots going on and they were setting up the FOX News booth in prep for the next days game. Texas won the game and man was it good!! Won by a field goal in the last 9 seconds of the game.
It’s always such a good time and we enjoyed spending the day together with no rush and nowhere else we had to be.
