Rodeo!!

So~ one of my best memories growing up was going to the rodeo. Every year, we'd go... watch my dad work in the area opening the gates and whatnot. It was a blast. This combined with my love of horses has never left me! I still get so excited every year when we get to go. This last week we had a chance to. It was a blast! Here are some pictures of the exciting event.

Jared getting ready for the big event!!! Can't you tell he's so ready?



One of my memories about the rodeo, is getting there a little early and seeing my dad tilling the grounds, like this guy.



I also remember walking around the rodeo grounds and seeing the pin full of cows, just like this!



Here they do what's called "Cash Cow". It's kind of mean, but kind of fun. They tape money on baby cows and kids come into the area to get the money off the cows.



This is another event I had never heard of until I came to UT. It's call mutton bustin'. Little kids ride sheep as long as they can. It's awesome!! So cute to watch.



We had a blast!! Jared said I was like a kid in a candy store. I was so excited to be there. Hope you guys are havin' as much fun as we are!!

We usually go to the PG rodeo every year as a family, we love it! Didn't go this year though because we were at youth conference. I'm jealous.
