Fort Worth Texas Memories

This past Sunday we spent a day doing one of our favorite things! We went to the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo with my parents, the Brooks family and our own. We literally spent the entire day there and although it was truly crazy at some times with tired crying little ones, we perservered and they did too and we made some FUN memories! We did our best to dress western, at least all of the kids had cowboy boots!! We all enjoyed watching the kids interact with the animals at the petting zoo, Lael was introduced to cotton candy, and the comfort of falling asleep in her Granddaddy's arms. The kids loved the rides at the Midway and Timothy was so excited to sit in a John Deere tractor and have his picture made. Ever since that day, he has been saying that for his birthday this year he wants to have a John Deere birthday party!! Wonder what that will look like?

We also were able to visit briefly with Greg Bailey and his 2 daughters Jessica and Faith. They had some cattle there they were showing at the Stock show and they had won some prizes too! It is always great to see them. We sure wish we could have seen Melanie and Hope as well.

How delightful! What a great memory-making day, and I am so glad you didn't forget the camera!!

Growing up in Ft. Worth, I went to the Rodeo every year. Even as I got older, my friend Mary Nell and I went (to watch the cute cowboys, I'm sure). We were always autograph hunters and the night we got Casey Tibbs autograph was a real treat! (Ya'll probably have NO idea who Casey Tibbs is!) Anyway, each time I was there I would have never in a million years have thought part of my family - including an adopted African grandbaby - would be into going to the Rodeo. Fun memories for you and brought back fun ones for me. Loved the pictures.

I saw at WalMart a John Deere gift sack so Timothy is on to something, I think!

Love you guys,
