Kiddy Up!

This week has been a week of rodeo fun for the kids~ We went to the Sheriff's Posse Parade on Wednesday. We were a bit late because I forgot my camera and didn't realize it before we got stuck on the major highway without a turn around for miles!! Oops- It was a bit warm to say the least, but with a little shade from the car and a bottle of water in hand the parade was worth it.
The boys got a ton of candy- that my adorable husband ate while nobody was looking! Poor kids-
This parade is a bit different then most...it is primarily made up of horses, big trucks and
TRACTORS! You would not believe how many picture K-man asked me to take of specific horse (mostly Paints) and tractors-Ha!

Along with this week came boots...

Wranglers...

and Cowboy hats!
Yep-we are ready for any trail ride or rodeo~

The K-man was beside himself with excitement waiting to go to the rodeo.
Well, last night with much anticipation we went! I cried during The National Anthem while all three of my boys removed their hats and "my" little small town stopped to pay tribute to those who have fought and continue to fight for our freedoms. I laughed as Little Bit kept saying"MORE!" waiting for the next event and wiped sticky hands... As the boys had their first taste of...
Cotton Candy!
We ended the night at around 10:30 pm when the last bull was ridden and all the goats, pigs and sheep had been petted by the boys- Ha! You think I'm kidding! K-Man kept saying the goats were his favorite part followed by the "buckin' bulls!"
The ride home was a full conversation between my adorable husband and the K-man on what animal we would get first... how we need 2 horses... and how we should build a barn for the animals. Whew~ I am still trying to wrap my brain around raising animals, straw cowboys hats and the smell of manure. Who says life's not an adventure!?!
Just to let you know...I wore shorts and crocs to the rodeo~

Little boys in little starched Wranglers, little cowboy boots and big hats--does it get any cuter? Nope!

I so would have worn Crocs too. :)

Lacie, you really need to invest in those pink cowboy boots for your country town. You would really liven things up down there! Those photos are so cute!
