I had a very Texan day for my birthday this year. I started the day out by meeting my good friends at Red Hot & Blue (my favorite!) for some delicious barbeque. Yes, it was Memphis-style and most of us had pork, not beef, but it was barbeque and yummy!
After lunch and running to Hobby Lobby and Michaels with Rachel (more of my favorite places!), the Holmes family and I headed to the Will Rogers Coliseum for the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. It was a beautiful afternoon, though a cold wind made it quite chilly outside. First stop was the petting zoo, which we all really enjoyed last year. This year it wasn't nearly as crowded, so we could get closer to the animals. There was a baby heilan coo (Scottish highland cow), a 5-day old baby goat, and the same llama with the terrible teeth that was there last year. Lots of fun!
What a wonderful birthday - great food, awesome friends, fun entertainment, a beautiful sunset, handsome cowboys, and traditional Texas fun!
