Well this year we did some things different. One was that we used Home school tickets for free admission on Thursdays in hopes of saving some money. I don't think we will be doing that again. In the past we have always gone on coupon day. All rides are a fraction of what they normally cost. Can't say we saved much today. Although we had a great day (as always) we almost spent as much as when we went on our Cruise! OK well, almost.
After 4, 4 dollar corny dogs and three or four rides at 4 bucks a pop we where running low on cash.
Anyway, it's still worth it for us. We have made it a tradition and have for years. I have some super cool memories of going when I was my son's age and they are cherish.
The day was mostly cloudy without rain thank goodness since it's rained for like a month or two now! The weather was a bit on the chilly side and as usual I clothed everyone well but for me. I dressed a bit light but was SO grateful for my windbreaker.
We got there about 11 and stayed till 8 pm after the parade and a major pig out session at " Dollar Dogs"! Grabbed a bag of cotton candy and hit the rode back home.
Another super day at the State Fair of Texas! Thanks Big Tex for the corny dogs!
