the state fair of texas.

Andy and I just got home from a weekend in Dallas visiting his parents. 

We took a trip to the Texas State Fair today before we headed home since neither of us had ever been before. It was an experience. It's in Fair Park which was built for the World Fair a long time ago. It's also home to the Cotton Bowl which I was lucky enough to go to a couple of years ago. 
We didn't get to do much, but did visit some of the little museums located in Fair Park like the Aquarium and the Museum of the State. I wish we could've ridden the ferris wheel but the line was a bit too long. I did get some salt water taffy before we left, though, which I have a definite weakness for and you don't find it very often down here in Texas.
Overall it was a fun weekend, but it's time to get back to school.

Sounds like fun! I should be visiting Dallas sometime in the near future (my Grandmother lives in The Colony and I have family in Daingerfield - although, no one ever knows where that is :)
I'll have to try to make a trip to The State Fair!!!
