Galveston County Fair & Rodeo

Last night we took the boys to the Galveston County Fair & Rodeo. My MIL was cooking fajitas for the cook-off last night too. We thought they tasted good, but she didn't make the first cut.

We took the boys to the carnival part to ride rides and play some games.

Besides Ethan's constant complaining about how everything wasn't fair and that he wanted to play more games (which were crazy expensive), we had a great time!

We even checked out some of the livestock they had. Evan loved that and kept calling all the animals, "Puppies"! It was too cute.

Then we went to go eat at a Mexican restaurant with Justin's brother Tony and his girlfriend Amanda.

(Amanda, hahahaha)

Tonight I'm happy to say we found another sitter for the boys (Justin's sister, Jamie), so now we can go to the cook-off. Yay!!!  Well I'm off to get some cleaning done. Hope y'all have a great Friday!!!
