Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo

Today was a long day because we spent it at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo which was full of things to do and see. This day was personally very touching to me, having grown up quite a bit of my childhood in Texas, which makes me at least a quarter Texan I think. Because of that, I wanted to share the things that make this state unique with my children and today was a great representation of that.First, we visited the carnival rides and food section. Every time we are going somewhere, Austin's first question is what are we going to eat. Today we ate out twice. He said that combined with everything else made this the perfect day.
Some stranger offered to take our picture. Smile everyone. Or not.Let's try that again. Smile everyone. Well, almost this time. Check out the horse statues in the background. They were very cool.We then headed over to watch some cowboys doing their thing.We were so impressed!More cowboys waiting to do their thing:and we are still impressed!Next up was the Xtreme Bullriding:We were really, really impressed with this! We agreed upon leaving, this day is one of our faves!Living the life in Houston, Texas!

Hey there, We made it! We are in Texas at the Austin Lone Star RV 'Resort' :)
Looks like you had fun in Houston!
Are you just passing through Lakehills on April 6 or are you staying for a while?
I didn't realize you had lived in Texas for a portion of your life. Neat... you'll have to tell us highlights of where to take the kids...
I'm going to have to get used to how you have to get in and out of this park...great proximity to the airport, but reallllly close to the highway...eek...Anyways, have fun and keep in touch! :) Are you willing to share your personal email address with me? I can't remember if I asked that already...;)
