alan and i took the day off and went to the state fair today, and what a fabulous fair day it was!
the weather was perfect - sunny and warm with just a hint of october chill. we got there early so as to avoid the texas/ou crowds, and we were lucky enough to have had two free tickets (thanks to alan's mom and her kind and generous teacher-friends).
we had corndogs for brunch, and then we did a little dreaming at the car show. we saw the ridiculously cheesy jumping-frisbee-dog show, shared an order of tater swirls (heavenly french-fry-slash-potato-chip combo), and shopped in the pavillions of randomness. people watching was followed by funnel cake and a trip to the imax gift shop where we played with fake bugs and something called bloody putty.
all in all, a very successful trip to the state fair.
