Fair Day with the Work Crew

Each year for the last several years, we have had the opportunity to have a day to go to the State Fair with our team at work for "team building." We, as a department, aren't much into team building. Don't get me wrong, we are a great team - we like each other a lot and work together well. We're just not very warm and fuzzy, touchy-feely goopy team builders. But, fair day - fair day, we can get behind. Here are some photos of our fun:

First, there was this.

That's right. We were at the fair when Big Tex met his demise. And, I have to tell you, this turn of events was strangely morbid. I guess because "he" was such an icon, but even now when I look back at the photos, it's creepy. That didn't stop us from running TOWARD the fire, of course, to get these photos. Ahem.

On to the food.

This cutie joined us.

And this cutie too!

Then it was on to the rides.

Five of us rode the Texas Star.
The rest of us waited for them, which was just fine with the rest of us. 
I hear, anyway.

There they go!

Homeboy stayed on the ground with the rest of us.

Then it was on to the butter.

Oh, and more food.

And some rabbits - the triplets of rabbitville.

Some more of the group.

The chorus contingent.
Singers, you know. :-)

We checked out the Girl Scout exhibit, too.

I didn't get to see this one when we were there as a family. And, as a GS alum, I was interested to see it. I even got a stalk of shortbread cookies since I was a former Girl Scout. Score!
