8 Seconds

On the car ride to the rodeo Beck and I felt like we needed to pump LJ up for the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) event we went to in Stockton on Saturday night. 




So in the car, with no music on, just our fair to not good voices, we sang LJ an old Garth Brooks song called "Rodeo;" Remember that one? "Well it's bulls and blood, It's dust and mud, It's the roar of a Sunday crowd. It's the white in his knuckles, The gold in the buckle He'll win the next go 'round. It's boots and chaps, It's cowboy hats, It's spurs and latigo. It's the ropes and the reins, And the joy and the pain, And they call the thing rodeo." LJ responded back with a big smile, a couple giggles and a look that said my parents are crazy! 




The PBR had LJ's full attention. 




The only thing he did not like was the clown. But who could blame him?



 LJ was in his full cowboy get-up showing off his first pair of wranglers.



Now you know your kid is skinny when you buy size 1T wranglers and still have to pull the draw strings as tight as they will go, strap on his cowboy belt and they still barely stay on him. Don't tell mom, but he needs to eat less carrots and more donuts. I on the other hand could use more carrots and less donuts!


Now there are two things you don't see a lot in Stockton and that is boots and cowboy hats! 


Here are a couple of action shots! 



The PBR...where little boys dream, big boys covet, and mamma's nightmares come true! -JP
