Last weekend Brock, Matt and I drove up to Dallas to stay with Stefanie and go to the TX State Fair! Friday night Stef cooked a great spaghetti supper for us then we went out for gelato afterward. At the fair Saturday we saw Big Tex the mascot, the Cotton Bowl stadium, lots of random fried foods (fried smores, fried cheesecake, fried grilled cheese, fried moon pies, fried bacon...), a bizarre butter sculpture, a great 2009 car show, a laser light show, and much more. Sunday we drove out to the Dallas Farmer's Market - I was on cloud 9! They had all kinds of flowers & plants and 2 large pavilions of fruits and vegetables. Between the four of us we walked away with wasabi peas, pears, cantaloupe, raspberries, huge bags of blueberries and lots of free samples in our tummies.

An irresistibly large bootie to pinch.
Expected & very unexpected things come out of their deep friers...
We tried out LOTS of 2009 cars, one of which was the van that has a table in the back!
Butter sclupture of an Egyptian tomb. Pure butter? Yes. Walls and everything? Yes. Why? Because it's a fair.
