Today we drove west and took the kids to the Russian River Rodeo. This was their 3rd ever rodeo.
We started with hot dogs. Luckily we got ours before they ran out!
Then the girls had cotton candy and popcorn.
Then they had ring pops which turned their mouths blue and purple!
The weather was beautiful. There were lots of local cowboys and cowgirls. The kids liked the bull riding, barrel racing and steer wrestling the best. Gracie loved the Rodeo Clown (Mr. Kiff, the husband of one of the teachers at our school). Cooper liked sitting in the dirt and flirting with the little girl sitting next to him. I loved spending a few hours outside in the fresh air with the whole family. It reminded me of the first year Jason and I were dating when we used to go to each of the rodeos in San Diego. In fact our first date was to a rodeo!
