Big Tex

I've been a little absent lately.
Mostly due to the fact that I have been fighting bronchitis for almost 3 weeks now.
I've had many days where I did nothing but eat (sometimes) sleep, and take medicine.
I even had to miss work 2 days last week - which killed me.
After a steroid pack, antibiotics, a narcotic cough medicine, and many other over the counter products, I am finally on my way to healthy.
Which is good, because I needed to be as healthy as possible for this past Saturday 
at the Texas State Fair.
We have been planning this weekend for a couple months now,
and there was no way that a little bronchitis was going to stop me.
*As we walked from the car to the park in the mid 50 degree weather, I seriously questioned my judgement about this though.
The best part of the weekend was getting to spend all day with these two!
And once we got inside, between all the booths and rides, it was really quite warm.
Our only goal for the day was to eat as much fried food as possible.
And we definitely succeeded.
Here are a few of our favorites:
Trey with fried jambalaya, Claire with a funnel cake, Michael with a belgian waffle, me with my corny dog, and the boys with fried cactus.
We also tried a fried picnic on a stick, fried mac and cheese sliders, and curly fries.
Yum, yum!
The boys also scored some sweet new sunglasses!
It was such a fun day, with the best of friends.
We are so thankful to have Claire and Trey in our lives.
Every time we are together, we find more ways that we are exactly the same.
And we just love them so much!!
Thanks for spending the day with us (and my cough!)
