a selfie taken with my cell phone...
dressed and ready for the Ft. Worth Stockshow...
I ended up leaving the hat in the truck...
 Friends since they were kids....
fun gals....
 it was a beautiful day here in Texas...
perfect for a family outing....
 
 we had a big group....
14 of us kids included...
what did we ever do without cell phones to keep up with each other... with such a large group...
we had to find each other a few times....
 Hotrods favorite things were the rabbits...and the rides....
the rabbits were really sweet...he got to pet several of them...
he had plenty of people to ride the rides with....
most he was able to ride alone this year....
I wore my new boots...
did pretty well most of the day...
at the end...I ended up with a blister...
but it was on my big toe...not on my ankle...
where I had expected it...
after walking who knows how many miles...
when we got home...I pulled off my boots...
propped up my feet...
I was sound asleep...
woke up 1 1/2 later....
I stayed up till 1:30 am this morning...
listening to music...playing on the computer...
Hubby and the guys had a fun poker game at my sons...
He got home around 2:00 am...
At 3:00 I woke up....I though there was a freight train in the house...nope just Hubby snoring...
oh boy was he snoring....
I found some ear plugs...finally went back to sleep...
then I woke up at 5 am...Nolan needed out...
back to sleep...jumped up at 7:30....
hit the floor running....
It was a wonderful day...with family and friends...
I'm truly blessed....

Sounds wonderful!!! Next year I hope I can go with Amber and Mike and the quads! We would have a BLAST!!! I can't WAIT for them to see REAL cows and ducks and chickens!!! They can identify them and make the sounds but oh what fun to actually SEE them!!

Glad you had such a wonderful day and the pictures are perfect!

Some nights I have to go into my office, turn on the TV and fall asleep to a favorite movies when Mark is snoring!!!
