Why, yes… this IS my first rodeo!

Lisa and I took Lauren, Holly and Burke to the River City Roundup rodeo last night.  It was the first time any of us had been to a real rodeo…  a good time was had by all!  The two little ones got cowboy hats.  We saw the animals in their pens for 4H judging; the little ones were pretty jazzed to get to see and touch the sheep, goats, and cows.  They also got to see some pigs (mainly tiny little piglets) and barnyard fowl — ducks, a goose, chickens and a rooster.    I didn’t get many pictures because riding herd on the kids kept us hopping.  They enjoyed the rodeo events, as did Lisa and I.  It’s pretty fast paced, not much time to get bored waiting for the next event!  I think the two little ones will be naturals for mutton busting in a few years.  That was hilarious, and it looked like the kids were having a blast!  On the way out, Lauren pulled a loose tooth — another first for her, she’s never pulled one of her own before.
