:: A Big “To-Do” ::


::Day 17::

Today we took a break from everything and headed out on  a trip to Dallas! To the State Fair of Texas…to be exact!

Big Tex BANNER 

We had been given tickets by a neighbor of ours and my daughter loves going with her boys…my son in law couldn’t take off to go; and since she had the extra ticket…we were invited. Thursdays is senior day and so The Honey got in free. :D

YAY!!!

I must say—I had the best time.

I haven’t been to the fair in quite a few years…I think the last time I went was with my kids when all 4 of them were TEENS!  (the same neighbor had given us tickets)

Off we went,today--- The Honey, My youngest Dear-Daughter and her two boys!  It has been so long since I’ve been to the fair with a small child…seeing the State Fair  through a child’s eyes was fun!

I think the boys enjoyed the Aquarium the most…

But I enjoyed the dog show.  Those dogs do some amazing things!

My pictures didn’t turn out all that great…but believe me… the dogs were a hoot!

Street performing African Acrobats! That is 4 chairs…stacked precariously in the air; and that young man is on top! They did lots of other feats of strength and agility…but this impressed me quite a bit!

I think the State Fair brings out the child in everybody.

There was so much that we did…and so much fun to be had, we couldn’t possibly do it all. I had a wonderful time.

I even rode down a SUPER SLIDE with my grandson---on a sack! Laughing the whole way. 

That provided me with the best nugget to cherish, when he later told me…(with a huge smile on his face) “I had fun sliding on the big slide with you, Oma!” Made my heart swell. :D
