One of the traditions we had in my family growing up was going to the Texas State Fair every fall. My mom took us without fail whenever we got our free tickets from school. It was a big deal – bc you know, Asians don’t take off work for anything, but if it’s free – then you know we can’t pass that up! It’s a fond memory for me and I’ve gone pretty much every year all throughout adulthood and wanted to keep the tradition going, so of course this is Caden’s 2nd year to go.
I’m not so sure this is something we should embark on EVERY year bc it literally costs an arm and a leg, roughly equivalent to 1/8 of Caden’s college fund. It was almost $50 just to get in the door! I don’t remember it being that much last year, but maybe I’m just getting old, cheap, and grouchy.
Taking an active toddler to a hyper packed event probably is not my smartest move in the mom playbook, but we packed on a few pounds and went on a few rides, so all in all – a good time and successful funday Sunday in my book.
Thank god this is only once a year. 😡
