Texas the Final Day!

After visiting for a couple of days with family and a little bit of shopping, it was time to go back to San Antonio. Our flight was scheduled for early Sunday morning, but we had one last surprise for the boys. I mean really, how could we come to Texas and not go to a Rodeo!

We found this great "family fun" rodeo, Tejas Rodeo, right outside San Antonio. Wow!!! It was beyond adorable! The best way for me to describe this place is that it was a combination of scenes from "Hope Floats" and "Sweet Home Alabama", two of my favorite movies might I add. The pictures really do not do it justice. There were picnic tables for families to eat, fresh grilled food, some of the best sweet tea a girl could have, homemade desserts, handmade jewelry, music, and then of coarse the rodeo itself! Holden and Rylan were in "Cowboy" heaven!! They had an event called Mutton Bustin, it is when kids ride on a sheep until they fall off, kind of like bull riding for kids. You might know that Holden wanted to do this, but when we went to sign up, it was already full. Whew! Instead, he was able to participate in the Calf Run. Which was just as funny. You run around chasing a calf to pull a ribbon off the collar. You should have seen Rylan, he was trying to get out there too. The whole time I am thinking, are these really my children??
They both loved the Barrel Racing, Calf Roping, and how could I forget....Bull Riding! The excitement did not end when the Rodeo was over though, as the announcer said, "Dust off your hat and shine up your boots. Head on over to the open dance floor for some two-steppin and live music." Finally, some good country music!! The fun continued for these two as well, they could not resist the dance floor! What a great way to end a perfect Texas Style Vacation!

The boys, included myself, were sad to see all the fun come to an end! So many great memories, experiences, and love from our favorite Aunt Becky and Uncle Eddie on this trip. No wonder the boys cried when we told them we were going back to Ohio! From the look of things, I think we need to start planning our next Texas excursion. What fun!
