Yes, it's what I thought after my Husband circled the HLS&Rodeo grounds for the millionth time... no joke. How people/parents leave their homes with a 2 1/2 year old and a One year old is beyond me. I admire you strong women and men of faith in your ability to be or become some kind of a Super Hero for a day!
I really do.
We went to the rodeo. We were totally OVER the rodeo about 5 minutes before we ever got off the car and then we went home.
We felt like everyone was watching the chaos as it walked passed them. We got on one ride and saw about 2 and half animals. The kids were not having the long lines and the whole...lets wait for an hour to see a cow chew on hay while it lays on the ground and stares at the wall. Go figure.
It was not a good day and for about a minute we thought about sitting and crying but then we got through it and realized that there are some events, places or situations that you just shouldn't bring into the life of a clueless 2 1/2 year old and One year old, like taking them to really expensive over-rated adult like events, like the uhm Rodeo or Monster Jam. We, I hope, have learned our lesson and will only ever attend events that clearly state how kid friendly they truly are. But, in the end we thought about it all and laughed it off, slept for about 15 hours and thought about what we may do next weekend. Ha. We will never learn...
Here are some pictures from that lovely day..... it was lovely nonetheless!
