State Fair of Texas!!

We went to the Texas State Fair on opening weekend with Steph, Jen and Brandon and had a blast! Bryson LOVED it! There was so much to see and do that he completely skipped his nap (which never ever happens!) But we all had such a fun day!

We stopped and painted a pumpkin and watched the trains before everyone else got there.

Of course we had to have waaay more than our share of fried food, which is a staple of the fair. :)

Big Tex  Bryson was fascinated by the "big man. biiiiiiiiiiig man!!!" (random fact: the man that records Big Tex's voice is one of my dad's patients! :))

Michael spent a long time loking at the cars, so Bryson, Jen, Steph and I all had fun playing in one of the cars for a while

And, the best part...the petting zoo!! Brandon and Jen bought a cup of food for Bryson to feed the animals and he LOVED it!! He warmed up to them really quickly and wanted to touch and feed {throw food at} all the animals ;) 

Can't wait to go back next year!


  1. Random question, but is that a Baby Trend Jogging Stroller. I just bought one at Target because it was only $99. I didn't want to pay for a big ole fancy smanchy one, but if it is the same one, do you get what you pay for or is it a good stroller? I haven't opened it yet because I don't think he can sit up in it well enough yet, so let me know!!

  2. yes, it's a Baby Trend. We've used it quite a bit and like it. The only downside I've found in the last year and half is that the tires deflate every once in a while since they're real tires and not the plastic ones like on some strollers. But that's not too bad. It's perfect for long trips like the fair and can definitely go wherever you need it to.
    Also, you can recline the seat, which is nice, too! So I bet Pearson isn't too far away from it :)
