The Rodeo!

 We made it to the Fiesta Day's rodeo on Friday night! Max busted some serious mutton! He scraped his arm up pretty bad when he fell off the sheep, but he was brave about it. (Next time long sleeves!)
We all really enjoyed the rest of the rodeo. The talent and the animals were amazing.
It was even enough to entertain our toughest critic!
Besides Max's mutton moment, the highlight of the evening for me was during the barrel racing. The last contestant was a young woman who had been competing in rodeos since she was a little girl. She had been in a terrible car accident and was paralyzed from the waist down. She must be one determined girl because she rode her horse better than most. It was amazing and inspiring to watch. After the rodeo we all got home too late and fell asleep.
