Fort Worth Rodeo

Back in January Ken won tickets to the Fort Worth Rodeo through a local radio station. The girls were so excited they were counting down the days until we could go. Finally the day arrives with a HUGE Dallas snow storm. Now we have lived in Utah and Colorado where we are not strangers to snow, but let me tell you... when it snows in Dallas EVERYTHING SHUTS DOWN! The ice on the roads are so bad you can't drive anywhere, the girls had like no school forever and we all had cabin fever. So with a prayer before we left we headed south for what usally is a 20 minute drive down town.
Our street when we left, now under that freshly fallen snow is inches of ice. Our house sits up at the top of a slight hill and we sat and watched car after car try to get out of our street (anything to do to pass the time).
The front of our house.
While driving around Fort Worth we found this beautiful church, I had to take pictures of it. Presley thought it was a Temple.

The Rodeo had a petting zoo in the frezzing tempiture, we were only out there for two minutes and then we could feel our legs so it was time to head on inside.

So By the looks of the arena when we got there Ken had rented out the whole place just for our family. When we handed our tickets in the lady said we can pick any seat we would like to sit and don't worry about our assigned seats. So What do you do in an emplty arean while waiting for the show??
You make the kids run up and down the stairs until they are tired.
Then you make them sit really still for pictures.
Why not, go ahead stand on the chairs Ellie. Not like anyone is going to stop you.

Once the Rodeo did start we had a great time and loved the show. They actually did a really good job considering their audience was ... well the Sorensen Family.

The best gift is often the Abercrombie & Fitch we buy ourselves. Not to be unappreciative, but I love shopping way too much to believe someone (even with Dolce & Gabbana Sunglasseslist in hand) could ever do it as well as I do. When buying for ourselves, shopping can be a high. I’ll admit I’m addicted, but don’t think I have a problem. Louis Vuitton SaleI know I know, the first step on the road to recovery is to admit you have a problem, but I just don’t see Christian Louboutin Boots that way. I’m content being a shoeaholic, and wouldn’t have it any other way.
