It's Rodeo Time in Houston Y'all

Saturday, March 07, 2015
And the Kubeczkas made all the rounds today...we spent the day down in Houston and had so much fun! And Aaron made me one proud momma today - he did the mutten bustin today!!! And y'all should have see him! He was grinning from ear to ear!! I was so excited I had to fight back tears of pride and joy - he rode so well. He scored a 93 point ride and there were only two that scored higher than him. Michael was able to get a pretty good video, too. He and Emma found a good spot on the opposite side of the arena since I was back near the shoots with Aaron and had a good view!
And here are a few shots I took from closer in - mostly before he took off! You can see him cheesing in most of them!

Some last minute advice before getting set up...

And off he goes!!!!

What a ride!

See the pride on that face??

Emma braved her own ride today, too - the high flying swings!

Hard to contain

After all that excitement and a couple of shared pulled pork baked potatoes it was time for dessert...and daddy found a chocolate chip cookie bigger than their heads.

Then it was off to visit the livestock! This is my favorite part - there is also a lot of shopping that goes on in there...

This big guy really impressed me - he was HUGE!

Aaron liked watching the judging, too.

That shopping I mentioned? Yeah, well the kids were the only ones that walked away with goodies today. They both are outgrowing their boots so we figured it was time for new ones - and some real nice ones, too! The top of Aaron's are a burnt red - they look great!

Emma said the swings were so scary she just had to do it again, so when we left the arenas we had to make another stop at the swings for her!

And they played a few more games. Emma won the first time and came home with a big stuffed donut!

This time we decided to take in the carnival from high overhead, too - this is my favorite ride!

Everyone looks so tiny!

We had a lot of fun, but it's nice to be off my feet now...we did a lot of walking today. Gonna lay back on my pillow and watch a little TV with Michael if I can keep my eyes open.

Y'all don't forget to set your clocks up tonight either or you'll be late for church tomorrow morning!
