Our life will soon be different. Here they are harvesting cabbages near our new place.
The pace is a bit slower. How about this customer we spotted at a strip mall?
Of course this sign caught our eye.
Grandma loved the parking posse...
and the BBQ.
The main events at the rodeo were team steer saddling (you have to stay on for 5 seconds)...
and timed team ribbon grabbing (your team ropes the calf, steals the ribbon off its tail, and someone runs to the finish).
The biggest individual event was timed steer wrestling. You have to wrestle the steer to the ground on its left side. As you can see, the steers were not particularly cooperative!
The grandkids entered the boot race (you have to find your boot in the boot pile, put it on and race home. Conner won. Corbie came back with two left boots!)...
the pig chase...
and the chicken chase.
We had lots of winners in the family. Conner got $5 for winning the chicken chase.
The last event was the sack race. It is like hydrosliding behind a speed boat. Your partner rides up, ties the rope to the saddle horn then races back to the finish with you holding on to the sack for dear life.
The afternoon closed with the drill team.
Does grandma look like she will enjoy our new lifestyle?
