The State Fair of Texas - Installment 1
We are now approaching the State Fair of Texas. This is the view from the freeway. The Ferris wheel is actually moving. Get excited! (Not that I would get on that thing.)
This is Big Tex. He waves his hand and talks.
This is the Cotton Bowl. It is a football field that houses the Red River Shootout between t.u. (University of Texas) and Oklahoma every year during the fair. On Saturday, Prairie View A&M and Grambling State were playing. I really wanted to sneak in to the halftime show.
Fletcher's Corny Dogs. This is the real deal.
Trying not to let the heat steal the joy of our battered and fried hot dogs. Thank God for Dr. Pepper.
The Chevrolet Main Stage. Notice that the stage is decorated with Chevys. Only in Texas.
They looked ready to roll off at any moment. Leave it to me to have vain imaginations about that.
The boys...now men. I don't know how they kept from having a heat stroke. Seriously.
Look closely. He's down on bended knee. This song, in my opinion, was the highlight of the concert. It was so worth going!
They sang all our favorites and some classic Motown hits.
We ran into Cassi and her family and they took a picture for us. I love that we are in front of the Hans Mueller Sausage tent.
We had never been so hot in our lives. Here Curt is splashing some water on our little guy who was a CHAMP that day.
The world's biggest ceiling fan? It was very effective, to the glory of God.
I thought this was mildly amusing.
We got to see one of the marching bands and drill team march into the stadium. Have I mentioned before that halftime is the only reason I watch football?
There's more to come later!
