What an afternoon we had. The park closed the office at noon so all of us could participate in the shenanigans.
If only Mother Nature had cooperated. You will see in the photos that we are all snuggled into our winter clothes. Besides the cold, the rain made an appearance for part of the afternoon. Luckily our rodeo came complete with "campfires."
I'll let the pictures tell most of the story...
