A Day At The Rodeo With Davin {Meagan And Bri, Too}

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, Davin was unable to make our carnival day on Wednesday due to a stomach virus. And he was heartbroken!  But, as it turned out, we had tickets to Saturday's Houston Livestock and Rodeo Jim and I invited Meagan and Davin to join us.  At the last minute, Jim wasn't able to make Bri took his ticket. 

Again, this is filled with just consider it another page in Nonna's Brag book!

Davin's favorite fantasy right now is to play 'Sheriff'.  He is always throwing one of his uncles in jail!  He was SO EXCITED to finally be going to the Rodeo and was dressed in full Sheriff attire.

Can you see the joy on that sweet face?  He took his mom for a ride in a Monster Truck.

Some of my favorite pictures of my children are when they don't even know I'm taking one.
This picture of Bri is a perfect example.  I love it!

Davin took Auntie for a plane ride.  If you look close, you will see his face all lit up as he realizes he is actually getting it up off the ground.

He chose the 4-wheeler for the bumper cars ride.
Of course he did!
Then he tried to beat me at the water game.  Neither of us won a prize, but we were tied in finishes.
Nonna -1 to Davin -1.  Then he made his momma play! 

Saturday was HOT!  Temperatures soared up around 90...maybe a little higher.  So, we headed in to Reliant Stadium to watch the rodeo.  I love to watch the rodeo live, especially the finals...but the Sheriff was not impressed and soon tired of it.  He was ready to head back out to the Midway.  We did make him wait until the first round was over, though.

See how happy he is standing in line?

It looks like Meagan was having as much fun as Davin!

He even talked Auntie into riding a camel with him...and she is having fun too!

Then came the longest wait of the day...a chance to ride the Ferris Wheel (the small one).  As nighttime closed in they were finally able to get their turn.

Meagan and Davin on the Ferris Wheel.  Doesn't he look tired, y'all?

And finally, the moment he had been waiting on ALL DAY...the chance to get his lasso.  After all, what good is a Wild West Sheriff without a lasso?  He was all smiles.  We were all worn out.  All in all, I'd say that makes for another great day at the HLSR Rodeo!

That's one happy cowboy there. The camel ride had to be the coolest, most awesome ride in the WHOLE rodeo. I would definitely need a sheriff for the ferris wheel though. For some reason I'm terried of the ferris wheel. I think it is all the openness of the car. I like caged rides. That way if I fall, I don't have as far to stop.
