This one definitely goes down in the book of
"Best Weekends Ever".
So much fun with my man.
Not the man seen in the big hat below.
That's Big Tex.
The icon of the State Fair of Texas.
"Howdy folks. Welcome to the State Fair of Texas."
I wonder how many times I've heard those words
come out of his mouth in my 37 years.
We went and visited him on Friday.
Ryan and I haven't been to the fair in
4 years which was when we took Trysten together.
It was the first time we took him anywhere together.
Remember how I said we were riding the DART Rail to Fair Park?
Well, we did.
Annnnnnnnnnd....Ryan saved a woman's life while in transit.
A woman in her mid to late 70s fainted/passed out while on the train.
People started freaking out trying to help her regain consciousness,
but my calm, cool and collected hubby
picked her up "fireman style",
as Luke kept referring to it the rest of the day,
and carried her off the train where she immediately
became responsive after she was able to breathe in some fresh air.
Back to the story.
Here's Big Tex:
After partaking in a famous Fletcher's corn dog...honestly I wasn't that impressed...
Ryan and I decided to ride this:
What wasn't fun was a ride called "Hard Rock" which Luke wanted to ride.
This is what the back of my right thigh looks like 2 days post adventure:
Won't be riding that one again.
You see a little bit of everything at the fair.
I'm still trying to figure this one out:
We discovered a wine tasting area at the fair this time.
Just so happens the winery where
we are members had a booth there.
It was a great time.
Saturday was college football at its finest.
We head out to the Cowboys Stadium for the
Arkansas Razorbacks vs. Texas A&M Aggies!
About 15 minutes before kickoff we made the trek
over to Jerry's World...I mean Cowboys Stadium.
The place is huge, friends.
Love this man.
Our seats were better than expected...
except we were KNEE DEEP in Aggie territory.
You have to see this screen during a game to appreciate
how massive it is.
I wish I would have taken a pic of the final score 24-17
What an incredible day!
Mama couldn't leave without picking up a new T-shirt:
BEST weekend ever.
Hope yours was
just as great, friends!!
