The Annual San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo was wrapping up while Mike was here. The children had been longing/begging/wishing/praying/hoping we would go. So, I used some of that overtime money to buy tickets online just before I knew I had repairs to make :)
We went in the early afternoon and the kids had a grand time. We saw the bird show and Sierra got to feed a bird with a big knot on it's beak. I can't remember the name of the bird, but I can remember some cool details about it. After it lays it eggs, the males wall it up inside a tree until the young are big enough to come out. Or something like that. I definitely remember there was a wall.... Anyway, Sierra fed a big bird fruit.
After walking around looking at things for a while we headed over to the rides. It was dollar day so all the rides were $1.00 a piece. We decided to spend $20. Plenty we thought. But, people kept giving us more tickets! If we had known, we wouldn't have bought any at all. We would have just traipsed through with our crew hoping we looked like a family who could use a few tickets. I recommmend you try it before shelling out the cash ;) So the kids got to go on lots of rides. To Hailey's supreme disappiontment she couldn't get anyone to go on the upside down rides with her. She finally gave up and rode a few alone. Where does she get it????
We spent a long time on the rides, and it seems that was the only place I took any pictures. But the real highlight was the rodeo.
Ezra's in here somewhere too!
Our seats were definitely in the nosebleed catagory, but it was set up so that everyone could see quite well and there were also t.v. screens. I think the highlight was the bucking bronc riding, but kids riding sheep was pretty fun too. Mutton something or rather...
Fun times, wish you were there!
