It's Rodeo Time...

It's that time of year again for the Houston Rodeo and Livestock Show at Reliant Stadium. This is the biggest show of it's kind in the U.S. Danny got 4 tickets from his work yesterday and since we have never been, we decided to go last night. The performer of the evening was Trace Adkins. Outside the stadium they had a huge carnival and all kinds of food vendors.

We spent most of the time before the concert down at the carnival. When we finally went up to the stadium, the rodeo portion was almost done. We did get to see a few barrel races.

Here is a picture of the concert. My phone didn't take the greatest pics because of all the spotlights and stuff, plus we were pretty high up.

Another pic of the concert and all the lights. It was a pretty good show! The rodeo goes on for about 2 weeks and every night theres a different performer. Some of the others this year include Sugar Land, Lady Antebellum, Alan Jackson, Kid Rock, Janet Jackson, and Brad Paisley.

A picture of the ferris wheel (or "steering wheel" as Aydan calls it, lol!).

Kenzie being goofy. She was so excited when I picked her up from daycare and told her we were going to the rodeo.

They each rode a couple rides before we headed up to the concert. It wasn't nearly as busy and packed as I expected it to be but part of that was probably because it was a week night and people have school and work the next day. We didn't get home until almost 11pm. We were so tired. None of us wanted to get up this morning!
We had a good time though. I'm really glad we had the chance to go and experience it.

That looks really awesome :) I bet it was a blast :) I get to see Sugarland and Little Big Town March 18th. But there isn't a carnival outside. What a shame.
