Ah, Oktoberfest. And you're only seeing a small part of it! Thank God for the Germans.
I think this picture speaks for itself.
The mid-way. I heart carnies!
Inside the huge ass food tent. Live polka music, a turkey leg, a beer, and air conditioning. I was a happy girl.
See that beer right there? I had four of those that day. Ouchie.
While walking through the mid-way (pretty well toasted at this point) I eyed this banana and immediately said, "PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME!"* Thomas vowed to return to the booth and win his woman that damned banana. As you can see, he succeeded. My hero.
Because Thomas and I are such fans of overpaying for beer and food and being in the hot Texas sun for hours at a time we thought it would be a great idea to attend another Oktoberfest. Unfortunately this one was much smaller and the beer wasn't near as awesome in it's German-kick-ass-ness.
Smaller cups, pretty much the same price, and it wasn't Paulaner. Big strike against this particular Oktoberfest. However, you drink enough of those little ones and you really don't give a shit anymore.
Old men in short pants and suspenders. How cute.
This is what happens when I'm exposed to heat and too much beer. You put a fuzzy cat toy in front of my face and I bat at it.
This festival was held in a newly re-built downtown square of my town. Mom & Pop candy stores, boutiques, drug stores, courthouse, and awesome little restaurants. Sometimes living in an older smallish town has it's advantages.
This is one of my main bitches, Kimberly. I heart her, even when she's a whore.
Okay! Enough polka dancing and beer drinking...on with the guns!
OMG LOOK! It's me with my pink gun and matching ear muff thingies! SQUEEEEEE!
Someone isn't used to a cute girly-type gun.
Yea, that's more like it.
Srsly, I'm so ready to be a Charlie's Angel.
See? Look! My aim is pretty good too! Well, kinda.
Now that's a fine lookin' family portrait right there.
And that's a fine lookin' couple too.

*If you aren't aware of the awesomeness that is PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME then go ahead and smack yourself upside your head and then watch this...
I dare you to keep yourself from humming this for the rest of your day. I don't think it's possible.
