Teigen had an awesome rodeo experience  this past Thursday!  He was chosen to see how long he could ride on a sheep!

Here he is before, checking out the sheep…

Visit to the Ranch…

Zayne...Saturday we spent a beautiful evening up on the ranch where my father-in-law lives.  We always have so much fun there and always hate to leave.  We have not been able to spend hardly anytime up there this year and missed doing so very much, but will be able to hopefully get up there a bit more this fall now that we don’t have the demands of fair animals, garden, etc…

Don't those black angus cows look pretty on the green, green grass?

After supper we went to…

The owner of the ranch had sponsored a chute so Papa Ed and all the grand-kids got to sit in the reserved seating area close to the chutes and had an awesome view of the action.

There were close to 30 riders that rode twice and then the top 10 rode one final time.  The kids had a blast and even got to meet the rodeo clown and some of the bull fighters.  We didn’t get home until after 2 am, which made getting up ;0)  for church  a bit difficult but we did make it.

 

Thanks for the great night Papa!
