Little Cowpokes

We got to take our first trip to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo this year. Luckily my mom was in town, so she and I took the kids during the day when the crowds were low and Daddy was at work. They had lots of fun, and I couldn't believe all the stuff that had no extra cost. We went as part of a PeeWee School field trip, so we even had free admission! Jack loved pretending to be a cowboy and a farmer, and Elijah thought the petting zoo was about the most wonderful thing ever. There were goats, sheep, llamas, baby deer, miniature donkeys, and even some tiny kangaroos! The boys loved it.
They also got to ride some rides with Tutu while Mommy fed Avery, then we headed in for our tour. We got to see rabbits, honeybees, cows, pigs, sheep, turkeys, chickens - even some babies that were only a few hours old. There were also some huge tractors on display that the boys could climb into and pretend to drive. I wasn't sure that Jack was ever going to leave! We will definitely be back next year - they had so much fun.
