Houston Rodeo 2011

Friday night I planned a trip for the three of us to go to the rodeo and the concert.  MeMe and Papa K even sent Dominic a cute rodeo shirt to go with his boots and hat.  We decided to take the park & ride and boy, was this another fun adventure from Dominic (who is fresh off many shuttle buses at Disney!)

Trying to snap a picture of Reliant Stadium from inside the bus!

I still get chills when I see the Houston Astrodome next door to it.  Lots of chilhood memories there!
After all, IT IS the 8th wonder of the world!

Kevin and I had $5 tacos from Berryhill.  They were expensive but delicious.  D had pizza and some Dots.
Oh Dots - how we should have bought stock in you...

The weather was gorgeous and it was very crowded, especially with Spring Breakers!

The start of the Rodeo.......

Beautiful flag but poor D still kept his hands over his ears for a while following this display of loud
indoor fireworks!

I look so wind blown from the outside eating we did prior to the walk over to Reliant.  Boys have it so easy with short hair and in this case, a cowboy hat!

The bull riding!  D could not wait to see what this was all about.....

The little chuck wagon races even made him stand up, he was very interested :)

The Muttin Bustin was too cute.  5 and 6 yr old kids with helmets on riding sheep to see who could
stay on the longest, it was hilarious!

Alan Jackson, a classic.  He looks the same just older.  This was his 19th year at the HLS&R, wow!

On the way out after 11pm - late for the Mero clan on a Friday night, (we got up at 5am!) whew!

Dominic had a blast and fell asleep when we got in the car AFTER the shuttle ride back!
