Big Tex...

This weekend is the last weekend of the State Fair this year and also happens to be Texas/OU weekend. Being an Aggie myself, I have not participated in this dreaded event before...but, I have to was a BLAST! So many people and so much fun tonight. I can't remember the last time I went to the State Fair. I think I was about 10 or 11 and helped my cousins, the Hardens, hold some of their chickens for a chicken show....that's right, you heard it! So, 2 turkey legs, 1 cheeseburger, 1 fajita, fried smores, fried cookie dough, 3 margaritas, 2 beers, and 4 FRIED BUTTERS later......Ben, Kinley, Jen, Matt, and Eden and I were holding our stomachs back to the car. If you can't tell...the Fried Butter was amazing!!! It is actually a biscuit that they put a ton of butter in and then fry...the best thing on earth. Here are some pics of the night.

And P.S. - the orange jacket does not mean I am in total support of the Longhorns...I am just an Aggie who happens to own an orange fall jacket (but, I would much rather them win tomorrow than OU)!!
The children's animal barnyard was SO fun...the baby goats were adorable!
They had a giraffe!
I don't normally post these obscene pics...but, wow...Boris III is huge!!!

You need to start working on the "gig em" hand sign...Kinley almost looks like she's trying to do "hook em horns". Looks like a fun day!
