Chevy Party at The State Fair of Texas — Whoo hoo!

Last Thursday Chevy invited Burb Mom readers to a private event held at The State Fair of Texas.

We all held our breath about the weather – really Texas, rain for 2 straight weeks?

Although it drizzled on the way to the fair, it seemed to know that moms, dads and kids needed a bit of a break.   The weather was cloudy and cool, but NOT rainy – yeah!

We gathered at the Chevy tent and test track.   Everywhere we looked we saw families enjoying the day.

There were cars, food, activities and fun…and then the whole State Fair of Texas to enjoy.

Some of the participants even took advantage of the Chevy tent’s computers and internet access…

Really girls, is THIS necessary?

The kids were enjoying the mini-test track and coloring contest along with lots of snacks.

Afterward, I ventured into the State Fair of Texas with my family – for the very first time.

I know!   I know!

I had never been to the Texas State Fair.

I had to meet Big Tex…

Yes, I obviously didn’t know where my husband was when taking the picture since we seem to be looking in entirely the wrong direction.

I was a little obsessed with the fried food.   I tried fried butter, fried coke and fried cookie dough.   We checked out the midway, the Chevy Main Stage, the car show, the Texas-sized Ferris Wheel and even saw the World’s Smallest Horse.

What a super fun day.

Thanks to the people at Chevy who organized and sponsored the entire event – it was great!
