The Poe Fam Goes to the Fair!

Oh, the State Fair.
What a crazy...fun...crowded...gross...fabulous...dangerous...expensive...memorable time we had. Little did we know that ALL of Dallas decided that the day we went was THE day to go to the fair....but, we had a great time, none the less.

We went with our friends, the Rice's, and enjoyed yumm-o fried food, rides, visiting Big Tex and more. I must admit that my nerves were a little on edge due to the fact that the scene looked exactly like too many kidnapping movies that I've seen...and the fact that my sweet babies were inhaling more smoke and smog than one should EVER inhale was a little disturbing...but, I guess it comes with the experience.

And, even though I'll do my research to go on a more low-key night next year, it's something that I never want to miss! So, here's to the first of many State Fair experiences!





Quinn & Beau were too cute experiencing their first fair ride! I loved watching their big grins with every fast turn!








Always TIME TO EAT!!! I thought this was an appropriate shirt to wear to the fair!

I have the same fear for the fair. Too many people and too many ways for kids to get lost or like you said kidnapped. My younger children are 4 and 2 and have never been.

Glad you had a good time. I really enjoy following your precious family.

How fun! I don't think I realized you guys live in Dallas.

We were at the Fair last Thursday (fun) and went for a bit on Tuesday night before our Shrek tix (crazy busy and not fun at all).
