Texas State Fair Here We Come!

Today we're flying to Dallas to visit Travis' family. On Thursday, we're going to the Texas State Fair to sample some of the fried food! The hot new item on this year's menu is Fried S'mores. Doesn't the picture look awesome!? There are also fried oreos, fried banana splits and fried cheesecake. We'll have more pictures next week!

OU vs. TX

On Saturday, we enjoyed watching the Red River Rivalry (OU vs. TX) game together! For those of you who don't know, this football game is a HUGE deal for us! It basically gives bragging rights to Travis (the Longhorn fan) or Mindy (the Sooner grad) & her entire family (OU alumni)!

Of course, we had to enjoy the game in style. We reserved front row seats at the ESPN Zone in DC and for 4 hours we sat in Lazy Boy chairs watching the game on a big screen tv the size of the entire back wall! Not only that...but we had servers bringing us high calorie food all afternoon at our beck and call. To Travis, it was sheer heaven. To Mindy, it was awesome.....that is, until the Sooners lost.

A few years ago, we started a tradition....if the Longhorns score then Mindy has to kiss Travis AND if the Sooners score, Travis has to kiss Mindy! Both of us got a lot of kisses on Saturday....sadly, Travis got slightly more.
Good job TX.
