The rodeo is in town, and we took the boys to see it. Last year at this time, we did the same thing. At the trade show last year, we tried to buy David a pair of cowboy boots. He would NOT try them on. He ran and screamed like we were trying to break his feet off. I told him that we didn't have to buy the boots if he didn't want them, but I just wanted to try them on to see what he looks like in them. Still, he ran and caused a scene. Once I calmed him down enough to talk to him through his tears, I found out that he thought that if he put on cowboy boots then he has to ride a bull!
This year, I got him to buy a pair of boots. He looks cute in them.
Each state competing brings a rodeo queen contestant. These are high school girls in sequined rodeo gear. They wear a little tiara fitted to their cowboy hat. They also carry around pictures of themselves in the same kind of getup, kinda like a senior picture, but they're all 8x10. David got a kick out of finding all of these queens and asking them for their pictures. They all signed the picture with a little note to David and David told each of them that she was the prettiest one. He's such a little Romeo.
