Saturday afternoon, we took the kids to the local junior college rodeo competition.

They had free tickets.

And it had been awhile since they had experienced something new and different.

It was interesting, to say the least.

I had no idea how much bling would show up at a small town rodeo arena.

There were boots for sure.

But the bling! A little over the top!

And what is it about people that have to bring their little smooch-smooch dogs?

You know those little dogs that people treat like humans. And then spend all their time smooching them and letting them "smooch" them. Plus, all the smoochy dog talking.

Personally speaking-Yuck! But that is just me!

It was pretty breezy and nice for most of the competition. It held the kids attention most of the time.

Pre-competition. The kids watched the "cowboys" and "cowgirls" warm up on the grass behind us.

Bull riding

The escape cow!

Lots of bronco riding.

My little cowgirl!

Hmmm, smoochy dogs at a rodeo? Must be a Texas thing! :-)

Love me a good rodeo. Reminds me of home and folks hard up for some entertainment. ;)

I'm with you, no smooch-smoochy dogs here. You don't know where that tongue has been!
