October Love: Part 3

We started off October with the Texas State Fair!!

Wandering through the animals made my night. They had tons of baby animals including a giraffe, zebras, llamas, alpacas, porcupines, goats, camels, sheep, a bull calf; they were all in pens so you could reach in and pet the babies. Here are Erika and i with the bull calf, goats, and camels:

The fair is the Fried Food Capitol of Texas (and perhaps the U.S.A.) In one evening we consumed:

*Fried Mac and Cheese Sliders
*Fried PB&J sandwiches
*Fried jambalaya
*Fried oreos
*Fried pineapple upside down cake
*Fried chocolate covered strawberries
*Fried grilled cheese sandwiches
*Fried samoas

Impressive, eh?

To finish off the evening, Chad and i rode one of the big rides...175 feet tall flinging you over 70mph. i am going to pretend that i wasn't nervous at all :) It really was a rush and i am glad i ignored my shaking knees and got on.
