State Fair of Texas 2011

I'm all about taking obligatory pictures when I go places like the State Fair. You know... standing in front of Big Tex, eating a funnel cake, etc. It's as if those pictures prove we were there and had fun. However, I'm learning those don't always happen while still having fun with a toddler. Pictures we did take include ones of Grayson wallering around on the Dart Train and staring rudely at our odd fellow passengers (he hasn't learned certain social graces yet), touching disgusting statues in downtown Dallas, petting filthy animals, and watching a corny, but amusing, kids circus.

I also learned that 4-5 hours allotted to go to and from the State Fair is not enough to see many attractions, but is more than our family of 3 can handle. We were all exhausted by the time we made it home. Luckily we rode the Dart and got in free, so the ordeal was very inexpensive (unless you count the doctor's visit we'll incur from the many diseases Gray must have picked up).

*Note: an excessive amount of hand sanitizer was used during the filming of this event.
