It's Rodeo Time, Houston!!

If you have lived in Houston (or, the surrounding areas) for any length of time, you know that the first couple of weeks in March, are usually dedicated to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. I have been going since I was around 5 years old.

Our friends, Greg and Stacy, invited us to tag along with them one night. Of course, we were available to go! :)
Brad Paisley, was the entertainer that night. I have never seen him in concert before. He was really good. He had a different guitar for every single song that he sung. It was pretty amazing. Thanks, McKellar's, for inviting us. We have loved carrying on our yearly tradition. :)


Lily's school had a kindergarten rodeo. It was really cute. They had stick horse races, wagon races, and sack races. At the very end, they all formed a huge circle and did the chicken dance. So fun!!!

Here she is walking in line for the rodeo. About the skirt....yeah, WAS down to her knees when school started back in August. I just knew that it still fit her. Ummmm....not so much!!! How in the world has she grown so much?! It was SO short, but she was not about to let me change her into something new. So, here is my cute cowgirl, showing off some leg. Sorry, moms! HA!


Of course, Maggie had her share of Go Texan Day, too. YES, she is wearing Lily's skirt. I think it fits her just a little bit better. HA! But, she did have her very own shirt.

Gosh, I love this girl!!!

For Valentines Day, Conn bought me tickets to the Keith Urban concert at the rodeo. I know, I know, I have seen him SO many times. Oh, well!! It was just as great as the very first time I had ever seen him perform! Thanks, babe! You're the greatest!!! :)

Our tickets were cheapest of the cheap. It didn't matter though, because the screens are so huge in Reliant Stadium.


Well, here it is the last week of March and April is already packed full of SO many wonderful things. We are loving this beautiful weather and all the newness that Spring time brings.

We had a great time with y'all! Love all of our rodeo memories. Don't think we'll ever forget those sweet ladies sitting in front of us.

I was at Brad Paisley, too! Loved him. I think he is just a cutie! Much like I think that little Lily is a cutie. My word! She's going to break some hearts one day!

Fun times!! I am sad, we had 4 free rodeo concerts and had to turn them all down with frank being out of town and then Spring Break. I think this was one of the few years we didn't experience the Houston Rodeo. Boo!

And I don't think Lily's skirt was too short. She looked adorable!

She was so cute yesterday when I was at school. She was telling me about staying with the Aylors with a babysitter and a movie they wanted to watch. And how someone else's name was ASHLEY. :) :) :) She was amazed someone else would have your name! :) So cute.
