North Texas State Fair & Rodeo

Reese & I had our annual date to the North Texas State Fair & Rodeo last week. We've gone the past 3 years, & we couldn't miss this year!
Our favorite part is the petting zoo with lots of goats!
Reese really liked this goat with the curly horns...
We bought food cups, but Reese didn't much care for the pushy goats trying to eat. He let me hold the food while he took charge of the petting!
The baby goats loved to chew on his shirt. I was sure we would come home with holes in the shirt, but it was fine! Just covered with lots of goat slobber.
Here, Mommy wanted to take a picture of us with a camel. Except the camel kept trying to eat Reese's hair. Yes, we're a little crazy!
During the rodeo part, Reese was more interested in the mud under the bleachers.
The nice Miller Light Beer Girls gave Mommy a necklace. Reese took a self portrait wearing it.
Yes, my dear little boy is sporting the latest MGD Light medallion necklace. Whatev. He had no idea what it said. He liked the big black circle!
Reese's other favorite part of the rodeo is always the carnival midway. Which I think is a major rip-off. This ride cost about $3. Ugh.
Reese & Mommy rode the real Tilt-A-Whirl! I didn't even know that ride existed anymore. Oh barf! He loved the spinning, I tolerated it. The wonderful carnival man let Mommy ride for free (no tickets!) since Reese's ride cost 4 tickets (which equals about $4).
On the way out, the petting park was still open so we made one more stop at the goats. Folks, it was 10:00pm and I was beat! Reese was ready for more though, so we stopped for just. a. minute. All the kids were sleeping...look at this sweet baby!
We've never made it to the real State Fair in Fair Park. I like the location & size of this rodeo/fair better. And for Reese, this is plenty of entertainment for one evening!!
