Rodeo Austin 2010

Rodeo Austin is another one of those Austin things I have been wanting to do but never had the chance until this year. Every year the rodeo is in March near Summer's birthday.

Because of it being the same month as her birthday we usually don't find it financially feasible to go. After all, fairs, rodeos, carnivals and such are not cheap entertainment.

Luckily this year we were blessed enough to have a friend give us some entry passes.

We met up with Angela and her kids at the grounds around 11:00. It was a perfect day to go because the weather was perfect and the crowds were at a minimum.

Naturally, the first thing the girls wanted to do was ride the rides.

We were having such a good time we didn't even realize hours had passed...that is until tummy's started to rumble. Mainly mine and Toby's...mostly Toby's. There were regular yummy smells you typically smell at the fairs but Austin's had something nobody can resist...YUMMY Texas BBQ!!

There were so many things to do and see that it takes more than a day. We were being dragged around one direction to the other by the girls. Everyone wanted to see different things.

We never did get anything filling to eat at the fair but we did manage to curb our hunger with a few samples here and there.

By the time we left it was almost 5:00p.m. We were starving so we ended our day with one of our local favorites the Good Luck Grill.

Here are a few more pics of our day...

Yes, I have acquired an obsession with longhorns while living in Texas..

The girls watching a band play..

YE HA!!!!

I have to say that even though we didn't get to see alot of the shows or the rodeo, I had such a good time that I plan on starting me a rodeo savings stash for next year. :-)

  1. Wow, I didn't know that there was so much else to do at a rodeo, the rides looked great fun. I haven't been to a fair since living in Australia, they don't seem to have a lot of them, unless of course I don't hear about them.

    The longhorns look massive, powerful too I bet.
