State Fair of Texas - Trip 2

10-15-11 fair (5) We made two trips to the State Fair of Texas this year. We always have so much fun there.

My brother, David, and his wife, Lauren, were visiting with us for the weekend.  They timed their trip to Texas so that they could go to the fair with us.

Rominal is once again getting coupons for food and rides - he did that a lot that day. He was using a credit card with my name on it and the woman actually read the name on the card and said he didn't look like a Wendy. He had to point me out to them. 10-15-11 fair (6)

If only they had some fried food at the fair.

Seriously though, what is fried watermelon? We should have gotten some just to try it, but there was so much food and so little time.

Bailey was pleased to have a ride partner with my sister-in-law Lauren. 10-15-11 fair (54)

Bailey talked Rominal, Lauren, and David into riding with her on a roller coaster. 10-15-11 fair (57)

I took this picture as they passed above me on the ride.
10-15-11 fair (68) I think they had a good time.

We also talked my mom into coming with us on this trip.  We took her to the fair a couple of years ago and luckily she had forgotten how much walking we did on that visit and decided to come back with us again this year.

The fair has packed up for this year, and David and Lauren have gone back home.  We had a great time both at the fair and with them.

Fried Watermelon? Never heard of that! I am curious as to what it might taste like? I totally missed our county fair this year. Your family is all smiles and it looks like a great time!
