One thing that October reminds me of is the Texas State Fair! Now, this isn't just an ordinary state fair, this is The Biggest State Fair in the COUNTRY!! But everything's bigger in Texas, right?!
My dad took a day off of work one day last week, and we made it a father-daughter day! So much fun.
One of the things the Texas State Fair is known for is the gigantic ferris wheel, The Texas Star. It has to be something like 30 stories high!
The other thing the fair is known for is Big Tex! He acts as the Host of the party, and actually talks! "Howdy, Folks!"
It seemed like the contest were endless: food, photography, quilting, even antiques!
And no fair would be complete without a trip to the petting zoo! ...though, in Texas, we have more than just the petting zoo... we have actual livestock competitions! And I mean - it's serious business!!
How cute are these height charts? Am I tall enough?
