rodeo round-up

Last Thursday, we ventured out to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. It was a beautiful day and Chris was able to come with us for the afternoon. There is nothing like seeing huge cows, bulls, and all kinds of animals up close and personal. Well, not too close, of course. But you know what I mean.

I've gone to the rodeo every year since before I can remember. It's kindof a tradition here in Texas, if you didn't know. ;) And, don't get me wrong...I'm far from a country girl. I've never been on a horse in my life. Born and raised in the city (well, suburbs), but somehow the rodeo brings out the country girl in all.

Coy was scared of the animals at first (duh, thank goodness he didn't think he could pet a bull or giant turkey!). But then he thought it was fun to watch the chickens and goats. Cyd laughed and slept and ate. She herself was an attraction of cuteness for many strangers. I had about 5 people tell me how adorable she was (I know, they probably say that to every mother..). ;)

We had a wonderful time and I was so happy that we went. Last year at this time, I was just about to go on bed rest. It was a rough couple months that have scared me worse than I initially thought. I am so happy to have that behind us and look forward to all that I get to do with my family. I look at Coy and Cydney and am in disbelief of how blessed we are. They are the most precious gifts in the entire world and I don't feel worthy.

Thanks again for all your love and support through the 'thick and thin'. We love you!

  1. I went to the rodeo while visiting my son Ben. It was a blast. Of course I had to buy a t-shirt with some bling on it. from AVI's wife
