In our state, the kiddos get a 4 day weekend when the rodeo is on. We have lived here for 5 years now and even though it isn't our 'thang', we decided that we needed to add the rodeo to our BTDT list. We started out bright and early on the parade route and then made our way over to the rodeo arena. It was one of those freaky, early in the year 90+ degree weather days so we had a hard time staying in our seats in the beating down sun. Thankfully, there were some diversions to be had behind the scenes.
