Houston Livestock Rodeo & Tim McGraw...

Three years ago (here), my family enjoyed a great weekend in Houston around the livestock show and rodeo with the Brooks & Dunn's concert following. This was our second time attending and surely not our last. This is quite the Texan event that could easily be an all-day affair. The stock yards are neat to walk through and see the animals been shown and out for display. There were endless rows of merchandise booths selling anything that falls under the cowboy genre. And a huge carnival located outside that we bypassed.




 



The event takes place in the Reliant Stadium that holds 70,000+ football fans.

We saw pigglets being born. Yep, that's his umbilical cord. As soon as this little guy was cleaned off, he went straight for his mom's teet




Every night there is a concert following the rodeo. This particular Saturday was Tim McGraw. Love Tim! Because the venue was so huge it made for a different experience. It wasn't as intimate but I enjoyed sitting back and just listening. The stage revolved in circles so everyone was exposed.

Your trip to Houston looks unreal. Have I ever told you how much I love a good ole rodeo!? Those identical girl twins are so adorable. And I'm sorry to hear about your friend with cancer. I'm in Andy's corner! Hope all is well with him and his family.
