The Fair!

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!

Your boys are so cute. Seeing them in their stroller takes me back to the days when our boys were in a stroller. I can't believe that time in our lives is over already! It goes too fast!
