Our stay here was wonderful.  We were here for two solid nights, and we had time to really take in the town's feel.  As you can see by the pictures, we went to see the rodeo on Saturday evening.  Yes, it's a little bit hick, but the rodeo is a lot of fun!  Joi realized that bluegrass is pretty good (especially when it's live).  And to see the bulls and the wild broncos being ridden by brave (or maybe crazy) cowboys is absolutely amazing! 

We also saw peewee barrel riding (small children riding horses around barrels).  The rodeo also featured kids running around, trying to grab a ribbon off of a calf (for the older kids 6-12) or a ram (for the kids under 6).  Cole chose to sit out and simply watch.  Maybe next time we go to a rodeo he'll partake in the fun.

There are two videos: Cole riding the mechanical bull and Prepping to Ride.  As you watch the Prepping to Ride video, note that the cowboy doesn't even get out of the gate until 1:10 and he stays on for approximately one second.  However, Magic Swing, the bull featured in the video, is quite the athlete and threw everybody who attempted to ride him. 

This is our last entry.  Thank you so much for coming along with us.  We have had a blast and our getting ready to fly out in a few hours, so home, here we come!!
