Yee Haa!

Friday night we decided to whoop it up at the Sisters' Rodeo for "family night" aka, 12 and under get in free. Dang that birthday of Samantha's! We've got to pay full price for her everywhere now!
One of the coolest things was that the parking attendants were all on horseback. Very cool!

It was a beautiful night, but it started getting too chilly for the kids around 9:30, which was fine since the rodeo was just about over. Next year we will have to be sure everyone has a bit heavier jacket, and pants.


The kids' favorite event was the barrel racing, but I didn't get any pictures of that, it was too dark by then.
Funny story- Ethan really wanted to enter the drawing for the new car, so we had to go down and do that. He is such a lucky kid, he's always certain his chances are good he is going to win. We even had to check out the trucks and cars and he had to climb in the minivan and test it out... in case we won. On the way out of the park he was concerned because they hadn't announced the winner yet, but I told him they wouldn't announce the winner until Sunday. A short time passed and then he asked me "Did you put our phone number on the card?" I said, "Yes, it was part on the entry form" To which he replied "I just wanted to make sure because we might be at church when they pick the winner" lol!

I bet it brings back memories of living in Calgary every summer. I forgot about it one year when James and I headed to Calgary. I would love to take my kids. I think it would be amazing.....
