In case you don’t happen to live in Texas, let me explain:

The Rodeo is a Big. Deal.

Like, we are talking, shut-down-entire-sections-of-a-four-million-person-city-just-because-of-Rodeo-traffic kind of big deal.  At this time of the year, it’s all people can talk about, and whether you’re going once, twice, or every single day for three weeks (hey, not judging, I promise), the Rodeo is kind of the ultimate destination in Houston in March.

So, even though we were facing a rainy, gray morning, my friend Ellie and I decided to pack up our kiddos and head over. 

And, I’d say this was a success!  I’m not sure Bear fully understood the whole “Rodeo” event, but he loved looking around at all the people and animals.  Next year he’ll even get to try some fried bacon!  (Just kidding… I think.)

So I thought I’d share a few photos with you guys!  Thanks to Ellie for convincing us to put on our wellies and brave the rain (she’s British, so this sounded totally glamorous when she suggested it)!  I already can’t wait for next year.

    This looks and sounds quite a bit like Stampede which takes over Calgary for 10 days in July. It’s crazy and insane and I love it 🙂

    This was such a cute post! He is really growing! There are rodeos all over the state this time of year. For an adventure, y’all should hit up a few more. I like the Katy rodeo in Katy, Texas. Yee Haw!
