Stockshow Rodeo

On Saturday, I joined the Holmes family for their annual trip to the Fort Worth Stockshow and Rodeo. It was a lot of fun. We went early so we had plenty of time to walk around and check out all of the animals, enjoy the "fair food", and check out the various exhibits and the art show (where Katherine won 5th place in her age-group). The rodeo itself was exciting, even though none of the bull-riders stayed on for the full 8 seconds. But the barrel-racers and bronco-riders were very impressive. I really enjoyed my first Stockshow rodeo experience, especially since I got to spend it with such great friends.
