Ramona Rodeo

Daniel and I have been to the rodeo once before with friends when we were all pre-kids.  It was such fun last time we went; there is something about being there that makes me feel very American.  You are handed a flag upon entering, the national anthem is sung, prayers are said, honors to soldiers given, and cowboy hats are everywhere.  Last Friday we got to go again; off to the Ramona Rodeo we went with Dayla and Sebastian in tow.


When we passed the pink cowgirl hats, I asked Dayla if she wanted to try one on to which she responded: “I don’t want to try one on.  I really want to buy one and I think if I try it on, I will have trouble not buying one.” She knows that her mama and dad don’t usually buy such things; I couldn’t help but giggle at my 4.5 year olds mature response.  So Daniel and I decided if it were $15 or less, we would get her one.  Off to the booth we went…and wouldn’t you know it:  exactly $15.

The delight on her face all night as she wore that pink cowgirl hat made our night too.

To put it simply: we had a blast.  The bucking broncos, cattle roping, and the beautiful “Rodeo Queens” was the perfect excitement for our little 4.5 year old girl.
