RODEOHOUSTON: Rodeo & Tim McGraw

Friday night *was* my first rodeo!!! :-D (The REAL thing; not just the barbeque championships :-))

Woohoo: saddle bronc riding, steer wrestling, barrel racing, bull riding; & the mutton bustin' (kids riding sheep) was adorable! [Both Will & Annelise are bummed that they're too old to try out for mutton bustin' next year; it's only ages 5-6. :-P] After the rodeo events came Tim McGraw in concert:

JB got these rodeo/concert tickets for free (JOY!!! They were *reeeally* good seats!) through work, so we didn't actually invest just to see Tim, (I probably would've chosen Bruno Mars, who played the rodeo Thursday night, instead ;-)) but it was a fun show! And even though I'm not so up on his newest stuff, he played "Something Like That", "Live Like You Were Dying", and my ultimate old fave "Where the Green Grass Grows". (I do wish he would've done "Just to See You Smile", though, too. :-))

We had a ball, and the kids affirmed that they LOVE the rodeo! Here's to becoming more Texified each day... :-D


  1. Have you heard his song "Don't Take the Girl"? I am not a fan of country, but a college friend was way into it, and introduced me to some country (very unwillingly). I still can't listen to that song without crying. Every. Single. Time. Just like Steel Magnolias!

  2. YES!!! I had forgotten about "Don't Take the Girl"! I may have to YouTube & cry now... ;-)
