I absolutely love fall. It is now my favorite season. Life is structured - as structured as it gets, anyways. The kids can go out and run without having a heat stroke. The holidays are upon us. It's all good. Most importantly, it's time for the state fair tradition!
Pods drew a picture of herself holding hands with my mom's man and a Ferris wheel in the background. Eric was happy to join us after realizing that he was going to be replaced during this memorable experience. The kids were in hog heaven when they got to sit up on the big tractors. Mommy and Daddy were not in hog heaven when they stepped in the pig poo. Picking out their favorite color car was fun, too. Not for the people trying to keep the car's windows clean.
They saw Big Tex and weren't as in awe of him as last year. Everyone had their eye on the Texas Star. It was going to cost us $45 to ride this giant circle around twice. So, the oldest two got to ride this year with their dad. Suppose I'll get to take the younger two next year. :) That should be exciting!
