National Western Stock Show

Despite my little bear having a terrible head cold, she still had a really terrific time at the National Western Stock Show this weekend! I wish we could have stayed longer so we could have seen the Mexican rodeo, but 2 and a half hours was L's limit. She was a trooper the whole time, but at the end she was really wilting and dragging. Still, she keeps telling me she wants to go again--but I'm sure her memories of the gigantitron ice cream cone that Grandpa bought her have nothing to do with her wish to go back (seriously, it was big, and she ate the entire thing).

Grandpa also took her into the cool petting zoo--there were llamas and chickens and goats and sheep and pigs milling about, and they were all so gentle! Bear loooooooved the goats, and didn't really care about any of the other animals. I thought the pigs were beyond cute, but L had zero interest in them (or the llamas, either)--it was all about the goats for her. So sweet!
