Mutton Bustin' and Easter

I'm sure ya'll are just waiting in suspense to find out how Paycos did, right?!? He made the top 30 in the tryouts and qualified to ride in the Thurday night rodeo. He got 1st place that night and went on to ride Saturday night where he got 3rd place!!! We were really excited! He won a great big belt buckle and a gift card to Dollar Western Wear! It's such a fun experience and we were all a little bummed that this was his last year to ride. But what a way to go out!! We're so proud of our mutton bustin' champ!!!


silly face!!!

Thursday night ride: This is HILARIOUS!!!!

Going out with her boots on!


Saturday night:

Posing with the Rodeo queen and some guy...not sure who he is...

We had a jam packed Easter this year because of the rodeo falling on Easter weekend. Some of my family was in town and my grandmother brought crawfish from Louisiana. DELICIOUS! One of the kids favorite things to do before we boil them is to have crawfish races. You have to pick out a crawfish, put them in the middle of the circle, and try to get them to cross the line first. It's sort of a tradition I guess. We used to do it when I was little too!

I found mine! Wasn't very fast though...

Cheering them on

The Easter Bunny was good to everybody! The kids got LOTS of goodies and had fun dying and hunting eggs. Harper missed out on the hunt. She decided napping sounded better! (Notice Kyler's hair cut!! I took her in for a trim because I was so sick of trying to get out tangles, and she wanted to cut it short!
