So yes, spring break came to an end yesterday, but guess what else did?
The Houston rodeo is 20 days and we went to 6 of them.
Enjoy this next section of pictures, which is basically a bunch of selfies of Jason and me.
(And if you're wondering why some are in the car...there's a lot of traffic to get to the rodeo, so it gave us something to do.)
Rodeo #1- Miranda Lambert. She's skinner and shorter than you think she is.
Rodeo #2- Fall Out Boy.
This is the Houston rodeo mascot. If you can't tell, he's an "H" wearing a hat.
Rodeo #3- Zac Brown Band.
Rodeo #4- Pitbull. He was fantastic!!!
You can imagine the dancing on my part.
(Jason even admitted he knew all the songs and the show was "good.")
Rodeo #5- Florida Georgia Line
Rodeo #6 was last night, the final night, and it was Luke Bryan.
Luke, along with Miranda Lambert, were my other favorites. Say what you will about Luke Bryan (he definitely shakes his bootie for the girls) but he can sing. He did lots of acapella arrangements, and his voice sounds just like it does on the radio.
Until next year HLSR!
Which gives me plenty of time to add another cowboy hat to the collection.
Yesterday was the 1st grade Texas A to Z production.
Some kids had speaking parts, (thanks to JR's talent as the morning anchor of the school news, both mine were assumed to have some public speaking genes and assigned parts) but everybody got to sing a few Texas songs.
Kyle was cowboy #7 and got to say "The cowboy's pants are the color blue. These Levi's last the whole year through".
His costume was easy since these same cowboy duds date back to JR's preK days.
The chaps were either deemed too small before we moved and I got rid of them, or lost in the move, so Kyle and I made new chaps.
Both costumes required sewing and both kids were excited to help me (I could have finished so much faster if they hadn't wanted to help so much).
Reed was ice cream.
We made the ice cream out of felt, stuffed it with fluff, and sewed it on.
We just hot glued the "Blue Bell" letters on.
Reed's line was "I is for ice cream. Blue Bell is the best ice cream in the country. Yum!"
After he said his line, the parents broke out in whoops, cheers, and giggles.
What can I say? We Texans are seriously serious about our Blue Bell...just like our Dr. Pepper, which if you look on the top row, you can see was also a part.
