On Wednesday, the boys and I joined my parents for an afternoon at the State Fair of Texas! Sadly, Justin had to work, but he was happy that we all got to go. We love the fair, and went regularly until a few years ago. This was the boys' first time (obviously!) and they seemed to enjoy it! We were there through their afternoon nap time, but they stayed wide awake and were just taking every detail in!

This is Big Tex, and regular at the fair here. He talks every so often, welcoming people to the fair, and the boys loved hearing him say, "Howdy Folks! I'm Big Tex!"
|Can you see us right under his feet?|
|The boys would hardly turn around for a picture... |
they were wanting to look at Big Tex!
We sat down to eat (I LOVE fair food!! Thank goodness it's only once a year!) and Jack did a brand new thing... he started clapping on his own! Some music came on across the way, and he just started clapping! He was so proud of himself! And Mommy, Gigi and Grandpa were super excited too!
As we walked through the Midway, the boys were all eyes! They couldn't believe all the colorful toys hanging everywhere, along with the people yelling for us to come play. I told the boys their Daddy would win them toys next year. =)

I thought for sure, after such a long day, that the boys would conk out immediately when we got in the car. Nope. They stayed awake for quite awhile while we were stuck in traffic. But by the time we got home (1 1/2 hours later!) they had thankfully both gotten about 30 minutes of sleep time, but boy did they sleep well that night!
