Friday, March 15 – After our time at the Livestock Show (see previous Blog), we relaxed and chatted  with Carrie for awhile over a bottle of wine at the Wine Garden.  Then it was off to the Rodeo. What fun! It was the Rodeo Houston Super Series Wildcard. First and second place finishers advance to Saturday's finals and a chance for a share of $2.04 million in cash prizes.


Carrie bought our tickets for our Mother's and Father's day, birthday and anniversary gift. We were in the Club seats…WOW…aren't we something.

These kids get to keep the calf they catch, raise it, and sell it later.

Steer Wrestling, Barrel Racing, Bull Riding, and Bareback Riding.

For the really young ones (pre-school) age – Mutton Riding. We really enjoyed watching these little kidders trying to ride those lambs. Crazy!

If you have never seen a rodeo, we highly recommend attending one. They are really exciting.
