"Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo 2010 in the Books!"

Sunday afternoon we took Abigail to the Livestock show after church with some good friends! Grandma bought Abigail a cowgirl outfit & boots for Christmas, so I had been waiting for the opportunity to put them on her! I'm glad I got some pictures before church because Abigail tore off the tassels on the vest while she was at church! It's funny how when you're trying to get some pictures of your kiddos in a hurry and then go back later to look at the pictures and none of the pictures turned out that good! Oh well! Abigail looked super cute in her little cowgirl outfit & I at least got a few pictures!

Abigail had lots of fun at the Rodeo with her friend Tristan! She liked to look at the animals & talk about them, but she did not like to get too close to them & forget about petting the animals! James took her into the petting zoo part & Abigail freaked out! Poor girl! I'm not a big animal person & we don't have any pets, so maybe that's where Abigail gets her fear of animals! Abigail is becoming very independent! She's at that stage where she doesn't want to stay in a stroller, but doesn't want to hold your hand either! The livestock show was very crowded, so that was a little scary with a little girl who wants to be independent! I told James next year, we need to go to the Livestock show during the day during the week when it's not as busy! We all had lots of fun at the Rodeo! It was a long, but very fun day!

Abigail got this rocking horse for Christmas over a year ago & is just now getting on it because she'd been too scared of it until now! LOL!!
Abigail loves getting on the tractors just like her Daddy!

We had so much fun. And I totally agree...during the week during the day would probably be MUCH better. It wasn't as bad as I have seen it years before but it was pretty crowded for a little girl to be walking around. We had a blast and can't wait to do it again.

Wow, your little girl is not so little anymore!! She is precious. Thanks for posting. I've been too busy to update my blog with all the preparations for you know what. Maybe soon!
