About that Texas State Fair...

My memories of the fair are mostly that of
turkey legs, cotton candy and the soda 
machine at The Our Lady of Guadalupe 
restaurant. I worked that machine to help
 out my grandma some years, it was fun. I 
was too young to work so I felt all adult 
and junk. These of course, are memories 
from the more quaint, less space invading 
Tri-State Fair of Amarillo Texas! We have 
lived in the DFW since 2009 and this was 
our second time to venture out to the 
State Fair of Texas. It was a blast! 

 ▲ The new Big-Tex, they forgot to give the
guy knees...
 ▲ Wandering around the Life & Times of Big-Tex
 ▲ The original head and arms of Big-Tex way back, so creepy. 
▲ Big-Tex was wearing this belt buckle last year 
when an electrical issue caused him to go up in
 flames. (If you haven't seen a photo of that, 
you definitely should. It's creepy as all get
 out!) Also, this belt buckle was made in 
Amarillo y'all!
 ▲ Me and my sweet friend Judy!
▲ Oh you know...tractor rides of death. So it 
▲ Cool guy. Always JEEP dreamin'!
 ▲ The giraffe that did not want his picture taken
 but did want to get awkwardly close to you with
 spit hanging from his mouth. 
 ▲ This is my good buddy, lets just call him 
miserable. Because he was. Sad eyes. I stayed
 there and pet him for about 20 minutes.
 We're best friends. 
 ▲ Gorgeous blonde boy enjoying some Chicken
 Fried Bacon right there!

▲ Having some FUN in the Cowboys trailer!!

▲ At the end of the night completely exhausted and
 fresh outta the bubble house! 

We Coble's love the Texas State Fair!
