Rodeo Update

I haven't had a chance to log on the past couple of days, so here are some pictures to get you caught up.

On Wednesday it poured. I was completely unprepared and got absolutely drenched. The rain made for some exciting rodeo though!

The swimming hole, I mean, arena...


From behind the chutes (where I ducked for a while to wait it out)...


A steer wrestler in the mud...


This looks worse than what it was. The rider got right up and he wasn't hit by the horse...


My drenched boots and pants. I took this after I ran for shelter to the Press Deck...


The next set of pictures are from Thursday. It was Tough Enough to Wear Pink day in support of cancer awareness. A certain amount of the ticket sales that day went to Susan B. Komen and a lot of the cowboys were in pink. It was pretty cool.

A roper in action...


This was a very stubborn bull that took almost every PickUp Man to get out of the arena. Look how he's dug in!


A mess of pink clad cowboys...


After the rodeo my team screwed around taking pictures with the clown's barrel...

The pic of you on the barrel is my fav. Can't wait to get out there!

I love that one, too, even the clouds behind you. I think all the pictures are just great. I love that the cowboys all wore pink. What a team!
