Today, I took the train to the State Fair of Texas with a troop of excited Daisies (and lots of Texas/OU fans, as the Red River Rivalry was at the Cotton Bowl today). We saw Big Tex (and even more Texas/OU fans), had a picnic lunch outside the Hall of State, enjoyed the impressive Girl Scouts 100th Anniversary Experience at the Fair, took part in a scavenger hunt all around the fair for a badge, talked to the Ford Automotive Robot (who talked to our troop and had everyone at the Auto Show cheer for our Girl Scouts), ate a delicious Deep Fried Samoa, navigated a lot of not too happy and rather intoxicated Texas fans spilling out of the Cotton Bowl while the game was going on, and then took the train home! We got lots of comments of admiration about our Daisies in their uniforms, and those bright blue vests and tunics were very visible in the sea of orange and maroon at the fair today. We had a wonderful time, though I must admit, I'm exhausted and hurting from all the walking tonight! I am out of shape. Don't get me wrong, stitching is my hobby to get me to relax, but it definitely doesn't keep me in shape!
Here are just a few pictures from today:

Now, the moment you've all been waiting for. We put all of the entries into a bowl tonight and before bed, my daughter picked a name out of the bowl! Sorry for not taking pictures, but congratulations to the big winner!
