Springtime and rodeo

Last weekend was a busy one starting with "cowboy day" for Thomas at school.
Saturday morning I had a CPR class, then softball game with Kate, then she came to spring carnival at my school.

Sunday was a day of fun at the Houston livestock show and rodeo.  This is the first time the kids have been to the rodeo and a concert - and this was Kate's choice - Demi Lovato and the Jonas Brothers.
These first pictures make it look like we were the only ones out there that day, but it was very crowded, 70 something thousand at that concert.  I left with my ears ringing - not so much from the loud music, but from little "tween" girls SCREAMING.  But, Kate did have a great time.  Chris ended up taking Thomas out, it was too loud for him.  Kate is an animal lover and was not too happy about the calf roping and some of the "rodeo" part of it.  We all got a laugh out of the "mutton bustin'" - 5 and 6 year old kids come out riding a sheep.
 
All rodeo-ed out!
