What did you do?

To celebrate MLK day, Josh took the day off and we went to our first Rodeo in Texas at the annual Stock Show in Fort Worth, called the Cowboys of Color. That's not a joke. That is what it was called. And, it was awesome! The kids did the rides, we walked through all of the buildings full of horses, cows, goats, and other interesting livestock. I seriously want to own a farm, maybe a goat farm to sell goats milk and goat soap...but I need about 10 more kids to help out on the farm. But seriously, I would love to live on a farm, I think I was supposed to but I was misplaced in Minnesota in the suburbs during my childhood. I really do love the idea of the simple life, not that I think it's simple, it's hard work, but the simplicity of the lifestyle is something that I am totally attracted to. Enough of my ramblings, here are some pictures from the day.....

 Did you know that dairy cows are HUGE? And their bones stick out like this because all of their fat goes straight to the utters to produce the milk. So, the skinnier they look, the more milk they produce. Pass it along.

Buying tickets to the stock show also got you into the museum of science and the cowgirl hall of fame (which we skipped) so the kids (and Josh) were able to play a bit too!

        Ahhhh, my dream, someone else doing the grocery shopping.
