Texas State Fair

My girls surprised me with being Thrill Riders!
If they could have had enough tokens to ride all the rides (minus the bungee ones)they would have!






My Love road his first ride and had some sort of episode.
SCARED me to death!
He came off the ride dizzy, ice cold and sweating buckets.
He recovered thanks to advice from my midwife but he was left wiped out.
It took him 3 days to get over the headache and tiredness.



uh MOM this is NOT near the train set


Crystal flower light tree




Bub is bouncing up and down over the model trains in the arboritum





Hubby took the girls on the Texas Star.
Tallest ferris wheel in the western hemisphere!
Bub and I stayed on the ground and had cotton candy ;)


View from the top


With Hubby down for the count for the most part this was the only ride Bub got to be on
besides the carousel


The FLASH of Hubby and Bub was all I could get as the zoomed past!


This was our FIRST state fair.

We liked it.
Wished we could have seen more.
REALLY WISH Hubby had felt better and had been able to enjoy the day :(

Next time we are getting the "homeschool tickets" to save money.
$17 per person just to get in hurts a wee bit
and
then you add the rides at $5 (in tokens) per person per ride
DOUBLE OUCH

We've decided to just save up and go to Six Flags if we want to ride rides.
Bit more for tickets but the rides are all free and more little boy friendly.

  1. We are going on Friday, probably will skip the rides because of the cost.
