Our first trip was with a preschool group with just the two youngest and me. We didn't go to the show in the big stadium, but did all the livestock and grounds attractions. Here's Princess A and I waiting for mutton bustin' to start. If you have no idea what mutton bustin' is....you are missing out!!! We tried SO hard to get G-man to do it, but he chickened out 3 times, but promised he'd do it next year. I sure hope he does! Here's a video of the winning ride for the time we saw:
They had a really cool birthing center where several new born animals, including calves, lambs, and piglets were there. The baby animals were adorable!!!
The first time we went, we went with some friends. Lo Man is hilarious and was always hamming it up! They had chicks from egg to chickens in the educational kids area. So cool!
Here's another longhorn pic. Can you tell who is too cool for pictures for mom now? Little miss attitude!
With the discount family day, we got nose-bleed seats for the rodeo/concert part. We were WAY up high, but thankfully, there's not a bad seat in the house.
G-man was SO excited to see the bull riding and bare back riding. The kids LOVED it!!!
They have a HUGE carnival on the grounds. We didn't participate, but it sure looked cool at night!
I got to go see Train with a couple of my friends. We had some awesome seats!!! Thanks for hooking us up Regina!! And Train did not disappoint! They put on an amazing show! And it was super-cool to see the rodeo events so close up!
