Where to begin? Oh...the Petersons. To let you in on how deep this relationship runs, Todd and Sega (David...whole 'nother story) met in middleschool BEFORE Todd even moved to St. Louis on a youth trip. I met Sega and Tricia (who had already been dating for 3 years) when Todd and I first started dating (it was kind of like meeting the parents). So as couples we've been friends for 13 years and going strong. Sega was Todd's best man and Tricia is a dear, dear friend of mine. When we told them we were moving they pulled out their calendar and committed to coming as soon as they could. We love them. Needless to say we were giddy to see them.
We started out Peterson-Palooza running...well riding. We promised the kids a train ride to the good ol' Texas state fair.
We HONESTLY thought this would be the quickest/cheapest/most fun way to go. Well 45 minutes later, the kids became less and less enthused.
Finally we arrived and were greeting by Big Tex!
This thing was BIG, Texas BIG. We didn't know where to begin. Ok, so we did. We ate A LOT of fried food (so much that it won it's own Texas Tuesday blog so stay tuned). Then we finally let the kids have their fun.
We saw pot belly pigs, kangaroos and lots of pick up trucks. Even with all that this fair had to offer we had the most fun just hanging out and having fun with some of our favorite people.
Peterson-palooza, Day 1.
