We got this postcard in the mail today:

Yeesh! It's days like this that I'm thankful that we don't have kids...
I'm kind of glad that they warn the neighborhood when dirtbags like this guy move in, but it kind of makes me uneasy too. : /

Friday Foto Fix - Texas State Fair and Shriner's Circus

Texas State Fair
We went with Emily and her kids - such a fun night!
Here are Nate and Jed workin' hard for the money.

"Everything's Bigger in Texas"!!

We loved the petting zoo - so many random animals.

We rode this beast. It was exhilarating! Like your garden-variety-swings-ride on crack.

Shriner's Circus
I know, I know, everyone's been to a circus and they're all the same. But this was my first circus, so I had to document it.
