Rodeo 2011

 Today we decided to go to the Houston Rodeo with Jackson. I had a cute cowboy shirt for him but it was long sleeve and it was a tad too warm for it, oh well... next year! We headed over to the livestock show and we were a little surprised on how Jack was reacting to the animals. Last year he loved all the animals but this year he for sure had opinions on which ones he liked and which ones he was scared of.

When Jack saw a cow or a longhorn he really got scared and wanted Kev to pick him up or be as close to him as he could. It was the sweetest thing! Last year he loved looking at the cows, but maybe the longhorns just scared him, who knows but we didn't stay in that area long!

Instead we headed over to the petting zoo, which he had an absolute ball of a time chasing and feeding the animals!
And it didn't take him long to remember what he did last year that he thought was so funny...pull ears! I reminded him that we pet not pull the animals! stinker!
This was probably my favorite moment of the day. I told Jackson that there was a pig behind him, so he turned around and went straight up to the pig and got down at the pigs level to look at him. I'm not sure what he was doing, but he wanted to see that pig up close! So funny!
I thought pigs would be scary because a lot of them were squealing really loud,  but they ended up being Jacks favorite animal!
After the livestock area we took a quick stroll outside but didn't stay too long because it was really windy!

But we were there long enough to watch some people eat very interesting items! Check out this list!
I found a Berryhill taco for my diet, but oh did a fried oreo sound so good!
You can't be at the rodeo without some type of bling.. so I happen to purchase this headband there so that I sparkled too :) ha
We had a little bit of a rough start with the initial animal meetings, but once we found the goats, pigs & chickens we were in good shape! Next year maybe we will give those cows a chance again!
