Our Saturday in iPhone pictures

Saturday we took the kids to the Fort Worth Stock show and Rodeo and I didn't take my big Canon camera.  Are you shocked?  Never iPhone was there!  I am so happy about the amazing pictures the iPhone takes.

We were very very sad when we arrived and the Rodeo was sold out, but we made the best of it.  I had no idea the rodeo would be sold out.  Gary and I were both shocked!

On our way!

The kids loved seeing all the animals.  They had TONS of questions about why people were sleeping in the barns in areas next to their cows.  I asked Layla if she wanted to move to a farm so we could raise and show cattle.  She said, "No thanks!"

Look at sweet Elsie the Borden Cow.  Her horns are super shiny and Elsie is very nice.  She just laid there on her super soft mattress while millions of people pet her head.  Bless her heart...I hope she takes her vitamin C...oh the germs!

It was a cold and windy day...Layla's hair was wild!
Can you tell Hayden was thoroughly enjoying himself?

After walking all through the animal barns we looked at some of the other exhibits. 

The tractors {and the fact that they are ginormous} were a huge hit for both kids!  

We had to play a few silly games.  The kids went fishing and got nasty stuffed animals as prizes.  Hayden was not impressed by the loudness of the midway.  Luckily neither kid asked to ride any of the rides.  I always worry about carnival rides. 

I loved taking pictures of them though.

Cotton Candy is the best treat ever.

This is what happens after a sleepover with family friends on Friday night AND walking around for over 2 hours at the Stock show.  These two munchkins were e.x.h.a.u.s.t.e.d!  Gary and I stayed up way to late playing cards the night before.  I don't know what we were thinking.  I guess not getting to see the Rodeo was a blessing in disguise.   One of us may have had a meltdown right in the middle of the whole thing, and it may not have been a kid!  I am way to old to stay up late.  Saturday night Gary and I were in bed and sound sleep by 9:00pm. Early bedtimes are great especially when we had such a fun day!

That looks like so much fun! Next time I visit, I want to do stuff like this! And that other thing we were going to do, but it rained ... Shoot, I forget what it was called. It's like a big outdoor place with vendors? I think?

That sounds like such a fun day! I'm sure my boys would have had a blast there too:) The picture of the swing is awesome!
