Francie's First Red Bluff Round-Up Rodeo!

We had an eventful and jam-packed Rodeo Weekend! Heff, Francie and I drove up Friday afternoon with Aunt Kat and arrived just in time to throw on our boots and head over to the Fairgrounds.

Francie in the sky box sporting her favorite "Rodeo PJs" and boots of course. She thinks they taste as good as they look.

Wouldn't be a Rodeo without the Budwesier Clydesdales (or are they "paint" horses Kat?:)

Francie staying up late not to miss a minute of this!

Sorry Francie, your Dad ain't gonna let you watch from that close EVER! (I remember this girl from the Rodeo last year riding her horse all over with a baby in a front carrier Baby Bjorn... looks like she has graduated to the backpack this year!)


Francie getting lots of love from Jamie "You-better-feed-that-baby" George and Katherine G.

Buffalo side show (they came with the famous "One-Armed Bandit")

Mary and Jamie watching the bulls

Francie with Aunt Kat and Donald post Rodeo (when the party really begins!)

Francie is jealous... she wants my ghetto-fabulous camo hat bedazzled with a princess crown. (Kat and I got matching ones at Bull Sale last month... people keep asking us if they are Juicy or from Neimans:)

Hanging out in the "Crown Royal tent" with Kat and some friends from college

"Dad's not sharing his cocktails Mom." (Classic Francie Face! The string lights from the tent look a little like antlers Doodle :)

The Heff's with a random cowboy passing by... haha :)
