This past weekend was the annual Lonestar Rodeo for Bowling Green. Charli Beth and I have been attending since she was 3. It was our yearly valentines date before I got married and I believe it is a must that we continue our tradition as a family.
Curtis being a former bull rider and bull fighter he is thankfully all about going to watch as well. This year Charli was able to go on Thursday to attend slack. While there she made friends with a precious little girl that is the granddaughter of the owner of the rodeo company. I am pretty sure that these two hit it off quickly!
Charli came home and played barrel racing until it was bed time. Then when it was finally our turn to watch the rodeo she found Miss Oralee before the show to say hi. When the how began Oralee held the flag during the introduction, barrel raced, and was able to do a few tricks in the trick riding division. Charli was officially in awe.
Bryar obviously could not sit still during the entire show. He would "moo" then climb on top of my head. I was not sure if the show would ever end due to my little monkey. But when it finally did and the expo cleared out we went over to get Oralee's autograph. She looked up as Charli, looked down and then screamed as she looked at her again. It was seriously the funniest thing. "I didn't realize it was you Charli." Charli just stood there not knowing what to think. But finally got the courage to get her autograph and her picture. They made plans to play again next year and off we went.
Charli has taken the autographs to school because she need everyone to see ER new found friend. One thing the rodeo has done for Charli this year is made her want a horse even more. Time is the only one who can tell when she will get one though!
