The rodeo kind of snuck up on us this year! Busy season was lasting forever and while we knew we wanted to go to the rodeo eventually, we didn't know when we could. Tyler's boss gave him 6 tickets for Saturday, March 14, so we jumped at the chance! He still had to work that day so we went in the afternoon. Gigi and Heidi and James came with us. Gigi was sweet to drive us all there, which turned into an over-2-hour ordeal! Finding our parking lot was ridiculous. We were SO happy to get out of the car. Millie said her favorite part of the whole day was going on the bridge... which is what took us from the parking lot to the rodeo gates! That's how relieved we were.
On the bridge
Max had blue lips for a little while, thanks to a dum-dum he ate in the car to keep him from screaming.
Millie was so excited to see the animals. The line for the petting zoo looked to be a few hours long, so we diverted her attention. It was so crowded!
Yummy food! We ate an early dinner just after we had our cinnamon roll. Sounds about right.
It is quite possible that this is the happiest Max has ever been. He was sitting on Gigi's lap with a chicken nugget in one hand and a french fry in the other, waving his hands and food around and dancing and intermittenly taking bites. It was so adorable! Millie sat behind, licking the little bowl that our cinnamon roll had come in, trying to get every last drop of icing. Funny kids.
We didn't make it in time to see the live rodeo events, but we did catch a song or two from Billy Currington. That's about all we dared to do with the kids before heading home. We love the rodeo!
