How to Gain Five Pounds in Three Hours, State Fair Edition

Save for a few TX/OU games, this was my first time going to the fair as an adult. It was also the first time Joe, James, and Kristin went to the fair. Overall we had a fantastic time. Great weather, great transportation (the DART), great food, and great company. I will let the pictures do most of the explaining.
Our friendship has survived Austin, Spain, and now the State Fair of Texas!

First order of business: fried avocado fries. (Yes that is redundant.) Beer too!
Official winner of best fried food: Fried Thanksgiving Dinner

Somehow we did not fall victim to the red velvet funnel cake. There's always next year!
Fried "Awesome Nutella." Sadly, not as awesome as it sounded. 
James and I love ferris wheels so so so much! Joe and Kristin? Yeah, they totallly love them too...

Someone loved the Ferris Wheel!

Fried cakeballs. Good, but nowhere near the awesomeness that Meredith can produce.
Pig Races! My money was on Forrest Grunt and Elvis Hogsly. Oink Oink. 
Fried red velvet cupcakes are near! And giant tractors!
This happened. Hands down the best thing we ate.
And with that, I am now in a complete sugar-fried coma. Was it worth it? Absolutely!

I think I need a juice detox now. Fried smoothie anyone?

This was almost painful to see. Fried CAKEBALLS...Joe - how could you cheat on me with such a cheap and sad substitute. I miss you.

Fried smoothie? You are too funny. Looks fun and totally made me miss Barcelona.
