Lil' Rustlers Rodeo

For those of you who know the Houston Rodeo is a big deal here in Texas.  It runs almost the whole month of March.  Some of the biggest names in rodeo come to compete they have famous performers do concerts every night and they have a large carnival that runs as well.  It is a lot of fun.  So when the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society asked if Emeri would like to participate in the Lil' Rustlers Rodeo of course we said yes.  Not really knowing what to expect we headed down on Wed.  But before of course Emeri and Nathan had to look the part.  I went and got them some authentic cowboy boots and hat!  Oh they looked so cute!  Any way it was a rodeo for children who face or have faced special circumstances.  They pair them up with a Cowboy or Cowgirl either on the committee or that participates in the rodeo.  Then they headed to the floor to have a mini rodeo.  Emeri had a blast, she was so cute and very brave.   They had bucking bronco's, bucking bulls, a petting zoo, real horses you could ride.  She even got her picture up on the jumbo screen!  After we got to stay and watch the real rodeo.  It was a lot of fun and both kids passed out on our way home!

How exciting! We were there on Wednesday as well. I wish we could have been there early enough to see Emeri! The kids look great in their cowboy gear.
