Our day at the fair!
I talked here about how I was so excited to go to the State Fair of Texas!
Well, we finally made it out to the fair to watch Texas Tech play Baylor at the Cotton Bowl.
The day was definitely an adventure and we've decided we've had our day at the fair and we probably won't go back, at least not on a game day!
We left my mom's house in Ft. Worth at 9am and the game started at 11 so we thought we had plenty of time. 3 1/2 hours later, at 12:30 we finally made it in side The Cotton Bowl to see the last 6 minutes of the first half of the game :( Traffic was just horrible and there was no State Fair parking left so we had to pay $22 to park in the grass about a mile away from the fair grounds. Here are some pictures from the game...
And this is what we saw when the game was over and we came out of the front doors of the stadium...
The rest of the day was madness! You could hardly walk anywhere because it was so crowded and you couldn't get coupons, food, drinks or anything unless you stood in line for 30 minutes. Here are a few pictures of our short day at the fair...
We did get to enjoy a couple of the fried foods we had been drooling over for days. John had a fried snickers and I had the fried oreos and we both had a corny dog. I was looking forward to trying the fried fritos pie, but the line for that was over 30 minutes so I got the good ol' corny dog instead!
We had a good time and I'm glad we got to go together, but I don't think we'll be going back for a long time! haha
