Stock Show Fun!

This past weekend my husband and I took the girls to the FW Stock Show & Rodeo. We had been before but not since Callie was born. Sunday turned out to be gorgeous and was a perfect day for being outdoors. They had so much fun!

Here are some pictures we took.

They have a free petting zoo which Keira loves to get up close and feed the animals. Callie wanted no part of it so she watched with daddy.

There was a small pony, a lamma, several goats, chickens, rabbits and a kangaroo!

We walked through several of the buildings that were housing the cattle. Most of the horses were gone already. They were getting ready for a heifer show and so many of them were being groomed. There were so many beautiful animals!

Saw this one cow who had this sign over its stall and had to take a picture, the mother was named Caroline :)

They had an entire room full of rabbits who were being shown by young teenagers who had been breeding and raising them. So many I had never seen before. These were the only animals Callie was comfortable getting close to!

We also went through a few shopping areas and then headed on over to the carnival rides & games.

Callie was too small to ride most of the rides but was able to if Kevin went with her.

Keira rode mostly "big kid" rides but still loves the Carousel!

This one she was so proud to ride by herself!

After several rides they gorged themselves on pink cotton candy!! We stayed til about 4pm & Callie did so well missing her nap time. They were both pretty tired on the way home. Even all of that sugar did not keep Callie from falling asleep in the car! She was out just minutes after we left the parking garage. I wish I had a picture of that!

I'm glad we were able to do this with them before the baby arrives. I have a feeling we won't be going a whole lot of places at first with 3 kiddos! It's going to take a while to get the hang of it!
