We stopped and said hi to Ben, who was part of the Directions and Assistance committee. He said his favorite question he was asked during Rodeo season was from a group of high school girls: "What beer booth doesn't check ID's?"
My sister Maria was also at the show. Out of 75,000 seats hers was only 6 seats down from ours!
The next week Madeline and I went to the Livestock Show with our friends. We were there nice an early, but not early enough to beat out the school field trips. All of the moms (and 2 dads) were exhausted by the end of the day, but the kids had fun.
Madeline sporting her cow outfit. Andrew has a matching cow longall but it doesn't fit yet. :)
Maddie and Brock on the bus. They thought the bus ride was almost as cool as the rodeo.
As Madeline would say, "Brown cow, white face"
The petting zoo was her favorite part.
Riding the pony was her second favorite.
Later that week we braved the rainy weather to go to the Livestock show with my family and Jon's mom. As usual, I just have a bunch of kiddo pics and none of everyone else. :)
Madeline's shirt says, "I make dirt look good." haha. I bought Andrew's western shirt before he was born especially for this occasion.
