State Fair 2012

On Sunday we went to the State Fair with Tejal.  It was a bit chilly, but we still had fun.  Of course my favorite part was the petting zoo area.  We got to pet lots of goats, baby goats, bison, zebu, camels, llamas, alpacas, a very soft baby alpaca, miniature horses, donkeys and more.  The baby giraffe wasn't close enough to pet, and neither were the baby zebras.  If it hadn't been so crowded I would have gone back in again when we passed it later in the day.

We stumbled upon the rabbit show and stuck our fingers in the cages to pet the rabbits.  These black and white rabbits were the softest ever!  The all back ones looked like velvet, but weren't as soft as these guys.

Oh, these were twin kids born the day before we visited.  They had their own little pen in the center of the big pen.

We went and saw the car show. I liked this Texas-themed bug.  Along the side it was painted like the Texas flag, and that white area on the front of the car is a map of Texas.

I don't have any photos, but we ate our full share of fried foods: fried guacamole (my favorite), fried snickers, fried nutter butters, fried butter (not very good), fried pickles, and fried cheese.  Lots and lots of fat and carbs.  I really wanted a corny dog, but they aren't kosher.

We did exactly what we went there to do.....eat our hearts out.
