The Rodeo

Yesterday we went to the PBR Bull Riding Rodeo at the Sprint Center. We decided to get the cheap seats because there really isn't a bad seat to be had and we ended up right above the chutes where the bulls came out. That was a good place to be because we could see all the action and were right there in it all. Basically what the rider has to do is stay on for 8 seconds (just like the movie) and then they get a score based on how well they did that. That's the technical piece of it, for people that understand the bull riding, the cool part of it. For people like me, it's the scenery which is really fascinating. (And the beer.)

It's funny how you go to things like this and see a little bit of everything. Some people have on their boots.

Some people wear their zebra print flats. (That was me, I don't have cowgirl boots).

Some even wear their chaps, and gloves, and cowboy hats.

He made me want to give Reese a little brother. Well, him and the adorable little girl with the blonde pig tails, seriously, they were cute.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Lil Miss stayed at a babysitter. This was the first extended amount of time Dustin and I have spent without her that does not include going to work. It was hard, really hard. But I only cried once. Okay twice but that was all. When we left, we immediately sped to get her. It was fun, but I missed her more.

Now, despite all the sidebars, we were really there to watch some bullriding. And maybe to try to nab a free t-shirt, because there is nothing better than a free t-shirt. And a Miller Lite...did I mention that already?

Here are a few pictures of our day at the rodeo. They aren't that great but we did have nosebleed tickets.

Well, that's all folks, but if you get a chance to ride out to the rodeo sometime, I highly recommend it!
