Last weekend, we spent a wonderful day at the State Fair with the Arnolds.
It was Ava and Henry's first trip to the Fair, and unfortunately, they missed getting to meet Big Tex by one day. If you haven't heard, poor Big Tex met his untimely death by fire last Friday.
We still took family pictures next to the spot where he used to tower over the fairgrounds.
There was even a memorial set up for Big Tex...complete with a cowboy hat full of Fletcher's Corny Dogs.
Speaking of corny dogs, we all definitely had some for breakfast. Beer and corny dogs....the breakfast of champions.
Ava and Henry didn't get to enjoy the wonderfulness that is Fletcher's this year. They had to settle for bottles in the beer garden.
But Ava didn't seem to mind :).
It was also Lane's birthday, and he celebrated with lots of good Fair food.
We noticed that all of his food items shared a certain...ahem...shape.
Can you tell that Ava and Henry were really excited about their date to the Fair ;).
We even made them pose for a picture behind one of the many wooden signs. This was the best of the bunch.
Josh loved using his basketball skills in the midway.
He even won Ava a stuffed dog and a sweet TCU basketball. Score!
So, Lolly decided to bust out her basketball skills as well.
But she wasn't quite as successful with the carnie-controlled game :).
Both of the babies were exhausted by the time we made it to the end of the midway.
And Ava was definitely ready for a nap...which made for a classic picture with her daddy.
Until next year...I can't wait to see the new and improved Big Tex and watch Ava enjoy her first Fair food.
