Texas State Fair & Mary Poppins

On Sunday, October 18, Meg and I met Nawnaw at the Texas State Fair for a girls' day out. Nawnaw bought the three of us tickets to go see Mary Poppins at Dallas Summer Musicals back in May. I never thought the day would come that we would actually be able to go to the show.

The show started at 1:30, so we met at the fair around 10:30...just in time for a corn dog and diet coke. We sat down at the Old Mill patio to eat our early lunch. Meg just had to have her picture taken with the giant ice cream stand.

After our quick bite to eat, we headed towards the midway for some fun before the show started. Our first stop, the swan paddle boats :) Nawnaw told Meg and I to go ahead without her...but she quickly changed her mind and was right behind us in another swan.

After the swan, we rode the giant Ferris Wheel. It was my first time on the Ferris Wheel and I was so excited. We only waited in line for about 15 minutes, which I thought wasn't too bad considering it was the last day of the fair and the line was pretty long.

After the Ferris Wheel ride, we had to start heading back towards DSM for Mary Poppins. On our way back, we stopped so Meg could stand in the cave with the waterfall background.

And, of course, we had to get the flower head picture :)

We timed everything perfect. We got to Mary Poppins with about 5 minutes to show time. The show was AMAZING, absolutely AMAZING. It started at 1:30 and we walked out around 4:15. I couldn't believe the show had been that long (of course, there was a short intermission). Meg was engaged throughout the entire show and never once wanted to leave or get up. At the very end of the show, Mary Poppins actually "flew" out over the crowd.

Nawnaw, thank you so much for everything you did for us to make our girls day out perfect!
