Our friends April and Tate invited us to their house this week to hang out and to go to the Texas State Fair the following morning. Fun was had by all!
The kids got along wonderfully - in fact, after John and Rory Cate had baths at night and were both fresh in their jammies, Ethan proclaimed that Rory Cate (who just turned 2) looked like a princess. He then said "Mommy, I think I'm going to marry her!" Her dad, Tate, just laughed and said "At least I like ya kid!"
It was really cool to go to one of the largest state fairs in the US. We saw Big Tex, rode the tallest ferris wheel in North America (212 ft.) and enjoyed a balanced and healthy diet of the award winning Fletcher's Corny dog and the delectable Texas Fried Cookie Dough. (Mmmmmmmm...is all I have to say)! Unfortunately we didn't stick around long enough to fill up on other treats like the Fried Beer, Fried Butter or Deep Fried Fritos Pie. Maybe next year (although those don't sound as good).
Thanks Gormans for the invite and for introducing us to a little slice of Texas history!
