Our State Fair is a Great State Fair!

Sunday night, I met my sister at the State Fair to go see Miranda Lambert at the Grandstand. It was raining and cool, which is unlike any other concert weather we've had! LOL At least at the fair.

What a great show she put on! We didn't have as great of seats as we usually do, but at least we were under the roof of the grandstand and didn't get rained on during the opening act!

I spent the night at her house and on Monday, Kat, Isaac and I went back to the fair for the day. Isaac got to ride the DART bus and loved it.

We walked around, ate a lot of stuff: tenderloin, corn dog, carmel apple, deep fried oreos, cherry-vanilla coke, cherry coke, popcorn, lemonade. So delicious!

We rode the sky glider 2x, Isaac rode a camel, walked through the Varied Industries building, people watched.

Lots of fun and I was exhausted when we got home! Isaac asked to go again! Once a year is my limit!

Finally, only 3 1/2 weeks after our original closing date, we closed and MOVED! In fact, we closed on our new house and started moving on my birthday! I slept my first night in our new home on my birthday. What a gift!

The house is slowly coming together. Everything was placed in the garage and I've been (very) slowly moving boxes into the house and unpacking things.
The kitchen and bedrooms/bathrooms were the first to really get unpacked. I guess I can't honestly say that these rooms are finished yet though! Enough to live in!

The lawn is looking great and the fence starts to go in this week. The dogs will love having the huge backyard to play and run around in! So will Isaac, once we get some stuff for him, probably next spring. We think someone stole his sandbox and swimming pool out from under the deck! Can you believe it!?

The construction on our street has really started to boom! When we bought our lot, there was nothing else planned around us. Now, there are 3 houses going up across the street and I think 2-3 to the south of us! It's busy and loud around here!

I am enjoying being able to take advantage of the weather and walk a lot. There is a pond about 1/2 mile from our house. I'll talk Sophie and Isaac. He stays at the park at the pond while I do another lap or two around the pond. It's great!

We've had a few people over now. I can't wait until I'm ready to actually cook for people, rather than ordering out or going out!
