Rodeo Time Houston!!

It's rodeo time in Houston. We weren't sure about venturing out this year, but we decided to take the kiddos and just see how things went. If she was miserable, we would come home... you can see by the photos she was having a ball! She is going to be our little dare devil. Hoot had a good time and even rode some rides he wouldn't try last year. He's sooo not our dare devil... he's just like his momma.. SCARED of his own shadow and has no shame in admitting it. We've been talkig a lot about courage and the fact that God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of courage... that's a tough one when your a big fraidy cat...

This is my little cowboy... it says so right on his hat if you don't beleive me...


and this is our little cowgirl. She rode Twinkie, the pony... No Fear!

we weren't sure how she would do on Goliath the BIG slide... she loved it!

She drank an entire icee all by herself.... you could not pry it from her lips once she tasted it.

It was a great time for our new family of four.


  1. Oh this looks like fun. Libbie looks like she is having the time of her life. She's officially a Texan now that she has been tot he Rodeo!!

    We did the exact same things...Kate even rode Twinkie!!!!! Love Hoot's hat and I love how you are teaching him a spirit of courage. You are teaching me that too.

    I called you a few minutes ago. Kate is still off from school and I wanted to se if you wanted to meet somewhere but your voicemail is FULL! Hope today goes well with Hoot going back to school.

  2. I love it and SO glad that Hoot didn't wear the outfit he had on when we came over! (or lack there of!)
    The slide picture is priceless! Owen is a handsome cowboy too!!!

  3. Looks like you had a wonderful time...Love seeing the smile on Hoot and Libbie's faces!!
