In October, we spent a really fun afternoon and evening with Gigi and Boppa at the State Fair of Texas. I love going to the fair...well, I think the truth is I love fair food. Even though is is ridiculously expensive to eat anything there, I still have to try as many things as I can! =)
The boys had so much more fun this year, now that they can walk along with us. They still spent a lot of time in the stroller, since it was so busy (and they got pretty tired), but they really liked getting to explore!
The boys sat for a bit watching and listening to Big Tex...sadly, this was the last time the boys would ever see this Big Tex. He burned down because of electrical shortage a few weeks later. So sad!
Boppa got one of the booths on the midway to give the boys each a balloon, and they were in heaven!!
And we finished off the night watching the Fair Parade of Lights! I had no idea that they even had a parade--we usually go during the day, so it was fun (for the boys and for us!) to be there at night and get to see the parade!
What a fun night with Gigi and Boppa!
And one last look at the beautiful lights!
I love getting to see all these things that are so familiar to me through my boys' eyes--everything is new and amazing! What a gift children are to us...we forget how wonderful the details of life truly are! I'm so thankful for my beautiful boys!
