If I say,”The Texas State Fair”.
Any decent Texan will automatically think of Big Tex and Fletcher’s corny dogs.
Yepp, we also think of both of those things….
But we also think of the Crazy Mouse ride.
Last week, with our busy travel schedules, we managed to make it to the State Fair of Texas.
Even with all the rickety carnival rides to choose from on the midway, there is only one ride that we wouldn’t miss out on…the Crazy Mouse.
It’s also the only ride at the fair with a camera that takes pictures.
We ALWAYS buy this picture……I love the sheer joy that we undoubtedly have on our faces just as we drop 4 stories (and how we look sick and excited at the same time).
Here are those pictures from the past 6 years.
Can you hear us laughing/screaming just looking at these pictures?
Every time we see them.
( UPDATE on this post )
I couldn’t ignore the fact that just a few hours after we posted this post, Big Tex caught an electrical fire that singed him into nothing but a metal skeleton in a matter of minutes. And on his 60th birthday too……
No doubt that the kind folks at Dickies will have him better than ever by this time next year,
but still, he will be missed…….
