Post-Rodeo Blues...

I can't emphasize enough how out of sorts we are...being homeless and all.  It seems daunting to even locate a pair of shoes, much less updating the blog.  We're on the homestretch, closing tomorrow morning and heading to Austin.  It's a bit surreal, but we're excited to complete the sale of our home and move forward.

A few weeks ago I blogged about the Rodeo in Houston, but never blogged of the actual event.

We had SO MUCH FUN.  Knox talked about it for days afterward, and I think had a case of the "post-rodeo blues."  He got to see animals, pet cows, see kids ride sheep, ride rides, eat junk food and have all of the attention on him.  I think I'd have the blues, too!

Gigi got Knox this cute pearl-snap shirt to go with his boots...it was perfect!

But really, it was IMPECCABLE once we added the hat.  Seriously, little boys in cowboy hats might be the cutest thing I've ever seen.  Good thing, because he wears it daily. 

He milked a cow...

Then got to meet Bessie up close and personal.

He had happy hour with the swine...

And donned chaps while riding a pony.

He "drove" fifty tractors...

And became a rodeo clown.

But the best part???

All of the rides.  Mimi, Kelly and Daddy took one for the team and rode the rides with him...mommy just played the water squirt race.  He had so much fun, and "won" all of the rides.  He seriously could have stayed there all day.

We left right at naptime, and he had a good hard sleep on the way home that continued once we got to the house.  He was pooped, but loved every minute of it.

Our friends (the Ingrams) heard about his love for the rodeo and all things cowboy and gifted him this adorable little set as a going away present.  He hasn't taken them off.  He even dressed like a cowboy to get donuts this morning.  Obsessed.

I'm so in love with this little cowboy, and I'm a-okay if he keeps it up.  Too cute!

Easter update coming up next...just hope it's before May :)
