State Fair of Texas... CHECK!

Hey y'all!  I figured since it's Friday & we're all SO excited for the weekend... it's only fitting that I tell y'all about our trip to the State Fair of Texas last weekend.

It was only the 2nd time Matt & I have been & it was SO much fun!

When we got there we went straight to the Midway!
First up was this fun ride... spun around & around & flipped all the way forward & backwards!
We especially liked the artwork on the back wall... 

Next up was this ride... Rock It. Let's just say my stomach was in a few knots as we were getting on... & Matt was enough of a trooper to do it with me!

The ride coming to an end... Matt was a little out of it for the rest of the day & I couldn't wait to get back on!  Until next year...

Then it was onto all of the best fried foods we could get our hands on...
Obligatory Funnel Cake...

His & Hers... Best Corn Dogs EVER!!!

Erin recommended the Fried Cheese Cake to us.  After searching literally ALL DAY we finally found it.  Y'all hear me?  IT WAS SO WORTH THE SEARCH!!!  I cannot wait to go back next year just for the fried cheesecake!

& More random pics from the day...
Memorial for Big Tex... read this article to find out what happened to Big Tex.

These aren't their real smiles... but, the face they must make everywhere we go.  #memories

Farmer Mike is gooood!

Hannah's millionth time to the State Fair & Brady's first

Ending the day... Can't wait to go back!

Have you ever been to the State Fair?

Did you grow up going or was it a new experience as an adult?

This weekend won't be near as exciting for us as last but, we still have plenty to do!

Any big plans for the weekend?

Hope y'all have a good one!
