It's rodeo time........

On Sunday evening we went to the annual Memorial Weekend Rodeo just down the road from us.

We all really enjoy it.

See here's a picture of Dax and I enjoying it.

We were lucky and even though it was very warm during the day, it was very windy so that kept it from being miserable out.

Here are a couple of  pictures from the evening. I'm sorry they're so bad. It was dark and I had to use my zoom at max so they're pretty grainy.

Bronc riding.....

Calf roping......

When they were getting the arena ready before everything got started, we decided this is the rodeo equivalent of the zamboni.

We tried to get the kids to go out and do the calf scramble or the mutton bustin' but they wouldn't even budge. They actually had an adult calf scramble but there certainly wasn't enough booze there to get either one of us into the arena for that!

It was a lot of fun and the kids look forward to it every year.

One of the bull riders got hurt and we all hope he's okay.
