  1. I love rodeo's so I can't wait to see you pics..... Now don't forget the camera. Where your boots and have a great time!

    1. I remembered the camera.

      Unfortunately my cowgirl boots were sold when we moved from Hawaii to start full-timing. : ( Who knew we'd end up spending some time in Texas?!?

      I think it's time for some new boots.

  2. It is awesome, went several years ago & got here in Ft Worth while theres' is going on. Read that the Ranch Rodeo Finals is in SA on 2/24 from 1-4 on a Sun. It is a great time with ranch hands, completely different than the professionals. We also like the shows where they have to cut out the cattle, sort them. Lots to see & do, if we aren't working, would like to go on 2/24. Have fun. Tom & Lynn

  3. The rodeo starts here in a few weeks. I think we are going as Jeff's job here has been extended! Can't wait to hear what you think of yours.

  4. Awesome! Can't wait for the pics!

  5. I don't think I've ever been to a rodeo so I'll just have to wait and see your pics!
