This Isn't My First Rodeo

It's official...I have attended my first Rodeo in Texas. I can now put truth into the statement, "This isn't my first Rodeo" (said in a thick Texas accent) It all started that day with a drive home from the gym. I noticed that an exit was blocked, mental note to ask the uncle when I get home. However I didn't need to ask him because as I passed the police blockade I saw a horse, then what the horse was pulling...a covered wagon. This was just the beginning of Rodeo.

Rodeo kicks off with a BBQ cookoff contest that my friends and I went to this past Saturday night. You pay an entry fee to get into the area which is pretty much like a fair, then there are separate tickets for each tent that has entered the contest. We went to a few tents but sadly we got there so late that we didn't get a chance to try any BBQ. The free beer made up for the lack of food, however, and the last tent we went to had a really great band so there was lots of dancing.

The cookoff ended at 11 so we ended up having to leave. But this is definitely on my agenda for when Amanda gets here in just a few days. I'm picturing the much needed funnel cake, silly fair rides, and o ya what makes it different from just your everyday state fair....bull riding! Get ready for an upcoming post about that!
