I can’t believe how fast this year is already flying by, it’s already mid-March, and Spring Break is next week, and so much that still was waiting to get done (projects around the yard and house) are still ongoing!
Right after I got our garden 1/4 of the way established again, our dalmatian, Super, who had been leaving everything alone for a week, decided to taste all the vegetables. The only problem was that his “taste” and my “taste” aren’t the same definition… to put it bluntly, he ate our garden!
He must not like Spinach and Chard, though. 😉
My husband had warned me that I should wait until he put a nice fence up with a gate. But I guess like Sarah with Abraham, my impatience got the best of me, and when we were out just “looking” at the plants at a nursery, he gave me the ok to go ahead and get some, we were hopeful LOL And thankfully it was only 1/4 of the garden, and not a whole, well-established garden that was demolished!
Watching him build a fence has been awesome, our older son is “helping” and loving every minute of it 😀 Watching my man work on it so effortlessly makes me so proud and happy. Hopefully by next week, it will all be done and my older son and I can take advantage of the Spring Break free-time to really get it totally established again.
The rodeo was it’s usual wonderful experience. Back when I was in high school, and part of a dance group for our city, we would perform here every year. Our son is interested in the sheep riding – which if you’ve never seen it, is so cute to watch!
M y boots, watching the steers being shown.
Kids showing their animals.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t get any pictures in the petting zoo part, but our oldest is SO SWEET with animals. In the petting zoo, he zeroed in on twin baby goats that were being protected by their mama goat, and she allowed him to cuddle them and play with them. Seeing his natural tenderness with animals is just wonderful as his mom – he’s going to be a great Dad someday, and no wonder, he has the perfect role model in my husband.
Looking at different kinds of knives and weapons. Not like we need anymore, though!!! 😉
All three of the guys had their black cowboy hats, even the baby! My husband will only do black. I obviously, love it.
There were so many other things I didn’t get on camera because we were having so much fun, they went fishing in a little pool and our oldest caught a fish!!!
We saw cute shows and pet ponies, saw lots and lots animals and their families camping out. Lots of country teens making the most of the annual meetup and flirting with each other – which is just adorable to watch ❤
They had a Lego exhibit, a huge tent for kids and grownups to create whatever they wanted to play with or have on display. My husband helped our son build race cars.
At the end of the night, at the last show that we saw, while eating a delicious funnel cake with it’s powderey sugared piece of fried-Heaven, our son actually won a Unicorn Shoe – a horse shoe that a Blacksmith made for only 4 people in the audience who would win them at the end of the show. He was elated!! And it was still warm when he got it!
