Now, nearly three years later, only one of these activities - the rodeo - have we actually participated in IN Texas. We/I have checked the others off our Texas Bucket List, but we've done so in...Wisconsin. Oops.
I'm not saying people don't do these things in Wisconsin. I'm just saying that I never did or expected to do these things in Wisconsin, especially after I moved to Texas.
After nearly a year of shopping for a pair of cowboy boots I temporarily gave up and bought myself a "Texas purse". In Wisconsin. (There is nothing inherently Texan about this purse; I just think it looks like it was made in Texas or designed for a Texas woman.)
|My boy looks so little in this picture!|
|This is how I usually lounge around my backyard.|
|Love these. So much.|
|Taking good care of Harley.|
|Hallie loved Tiffany - affectionately known as the "slow motion horse" - dearly. And|
note Hallie's brand-new cowboy boots...we picked those up on our trip. In Wisconsin.
|Learning to steer.|
|Learning to trot.|
|First up, the truck pull.|
|I cheered for this vintage pick-up but it finished last.|
I think. I never actually figured out the scoring system.
|These numbers meant absolutely nothing to us, even after watching them|
zero and start and stop and fluctuate wildly for more than an hour of competition.
|After the truck pull, the tractor pull began.|
|And the winner is..."Farmer's Daughter". I loved that the only|
female driver - with the prettiest tractor - won the competition.
