Houston Rodeo

This was Brenham's first time, but it was time to take Bradley back to the Houston Rodeo!
Inside there a lots of animals and exhibits to entertain and teach young Texans. What was Bradley's favorite? The escalator! We rode it twice.

It was a beautiful day and Bradley enjoyed going through the farming exhibit outside.

Planting tomatoes:
Plowing the fields:
Feeding the chickens:
Pumping some well water:
And milking a cow:
It doesn't get more "country" than that!

For the second year in a row, Bradley got most excited about the hand sanitizing stations:
And cheered the mutton bustin' kids:
Two more years until it's your turn, buddy!
Brenham was pretty unimpressed with everything, but enjoyed the time to snuggle with me in the Bjorn:
That was taken at the pig races... sad news: Swifty the Diving Pig wasn't there!! In related news... we tried fried bacon at lunch. It wasn't nearly as good as it sounds.

But Bradley enjoyed his lunch of sausage on a stick!
I love this kid.
A stop back inside to check out the hatching chickens:
And back home on the tram!
Another fun day at the rodeo!

Chris and I went back a few nights later with friends:
We enjoyed the Wine Garden:
And the concert.
And, just like Bradley, we all enjoyed the escalator:
