{Texas Tuesday - FWSSR - This thing is legendary!}

This Saturday we made our annual trip over to Fort Worth for the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo! It's a tradition for the Halls {and now the Moores} and we love it! 

Despite the last minute freak out in weather {Typical Texas} we still had a great time! It was supposed to be a high of 70 that day and sometime while we were getting ready it changed and the temperature dropped 20 degrees and continued to drop!

Mason was excited to see the animals and ride some rides. And that he did. We started in the cattle barns and made a few swipes through those. They were showing in most of the barns so they were extremely crowded. After the barns we headed to the exhibits for a bit. We found Mason a new belt and buckle and he sweet talked his Nana into a couple things, too! Then we were off to the rides. 

Mason was able to ride 6 or so rides before the Rodeo. He had a wonderful time and it wasn't too terribly cold. I think the Midway was just on the other side of the buildings so it helped block some of the wind. Anyhow, I love how he has no fear and wants to do it all. It won't be long and we'll be moving to the 'bigger' rides. Eeek!

The Rodeo was awesome! There were a lot of good bulls and rides. Our seats were basically right over the chutes...so that was awesome.

After the Rodeo we all headed over to dinner at the Mexican food place. Another tradition. We had so much much fun there talking and just hanging out. We talked a lot about vacations and the upcoming wedding of Nate's middle brother & his fiance. So much to look forward to!

Until next year, FWSSR...
