It was a cold, wet day at the Fair--even the hundreds of deep-fat fryers scattered liberally across the fairgrounds couldn't ward off the chill. It didn't actually rain on us, though, and the weather kept a lot of people home. We had a fun day and tried to experience all the fair had to offer:
Fried food (see separate post)
African acrobats--the lowest limbo I have ever seen
Petting zoo (again, separate post)
Dog show--Natalie LOVES doggies
Puppet show--Ella thought the marionettes were pretty cool
All kinds of exhibits--crafts, food, animals, etc.
Here we are with Big Tex, the symbol of the fair. His jaw is hinged, and he periodically gives announcements.
Ella and I rode the 212-foot tall Texas Star, the tallest amusement ride in the western hemisphere.
We spent the entire ride freezing our patooties off.
Ell had a grand time piloting her own plane.
