This Ain't My First Rodeo

Last week was Spring Break,  and before we headed to Oklahoma, the kids and I visited the Texas Star Rodeo.  I grew up going to Rodeos and this was my first one since I was a child.  But this was my kid's first rodeo....and we had a blast.

For all our non-Texas friends, here is our list of 'must-do's' while at the Rodeo.......

 check out the events 
- so it was a Tuesday morning, and all they had were the girls 
showing their horses in sparkly-shirts....my kids still liked it.
check out a funny event 
like these adorable pigs racing to get an oreo.
 pet a deer?
huh?
only in Texas y'all.
 Scare your 2-year old while petting the deer, so that he doesn't want anything to do with the animals.
 ride a tractor.
backwards.
we showed him the right way........
 eat some yummy (and expensive) carnival food.
like a ginormous corny dog.
 and the requisite funnel cake.
 take the kids on some crazy carnival rides.
unlimited ride wristband half-off.
yee-haw!!!
 make sure you capture those great expressions......


 and require your kids to do some sibling-bonding while on the rides together....
 or maybe not.
 see the rodeo through the eyes of your 2-year old.
 capture those smiles....
 and fearful faces.....
especially this one......

Is it just me (and Connie) or does that corny dog look totally inappropriate?

You took some fabulous pics! I'm a little bit jealous of your photography skills.

I do not enjoy most rodeos. I hate when they rope the poor little calf's. It's just not nice.
