Right before Spring Break, my mom and I made a special trip down to the Houston livestock show to see all of the animals and give the boys a sampling of the massive amount of activities that come along with the rodeo weeks. We did this on a Friday morning and other than the large school field trips taking place it wasn't very crowded at all. So we first went inside to the booths and avoided the school craziness and lines outside, and then after lunch when the schools left we headed back outside to visit the kids country. We saw some Mutton Bustin, rabbits, hens, cows, pigs, sheep, chicks, bees, horses, goats, lamas, donkeys and even saw brand new piglets born just moments before we came. Here a few pictures. I have more from the kids farmers market that I'll put in another post. Both boys were so good, happy, hungry, mostly listened and were excited about everything. I'm excited for the next few years when Carter will be old enough for Mutton Bustin.
