Yeehaw!!! It's Rodeo time, folks!

We enjoyed the day at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo today with the kids and our sis-in-law, Kathryn. One of Brad's business clients had given him box seat tickets, so we were spoiled with a front row view for the kids' very first rodeo! It was great fun!

We left early so we would have plenty of time to walk around and see all the animals before the rodeo. They enjoyed it all, but I think the biggest hit was all the tractors! I think Tanner sat on almost every one of them... it was this little boy's dream-come-true!
He was BEAMING!!!

Sister's turn!

He ran around from one machine to the next, finger pointing at each one, yelling, "Yook, yook! Yook at dat one!" It was too precious!

Look at the concentration on his face! He must really think he's about to drive off in that thing!

He really could have done this all day long!

After seeing lots of horses, cows, pigs, bunnies, chickens, sheep, and plenty of tractors, we made our way over to the colliseum where we enjoyed our giant corn dogs before the rodeo started:
The corn dog was just about as big as him.... and he ate ALL of it! We were shocked! I guess all that tractor driving had worked up a big appetite!
Aunt Kathryn helped with mustard dipping so we wouldn't make too much of a mess!
Tanner gettin' some love from Aunt Kat

Oh boy! It's time for the rodeo!
We had fun waving at all the horses during the Grand Entrance!
We got to give high-fives to our Fort Worth police officers as they passed by...
We even high-fived the clowns!

Tori enjoyed her first taste of cotton candy...
I think it was a HIT!
We all got sticky fingers!

Tori enjoyed the bulls and clowns at the end...
Such a cutie!
