Days of '47 Rodeo


We received free tickets to the Days of '47 Rodeo for last night. We found some bandanas and some cowboy hats and practiced our "Yeehaws!" This was the first time the new Days of '47 Arena had been used so they had a big dedication program at the beginning, which included singing by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and a dedicatory prayer by Elder Ballard. Our stake was given some tickets as a thank you for enduring the construction process in our neighborhood. They also had a dinner before the rodeo catered by Red Iguana and it was tasty! I can't wait to go back to this rodeo in like 15 years and tell the girls that they were able to be at the very first rodeo in this new arena.

Reagan's favorite part was seeing the rodeo queens. "The queens!?" She particularly loved their crowns. Naomi was probably most interested in the kettle corn but every once in a while she'd point and say, "horsey!" Jordan and I thought the bucking broncos were pretty exciting. Ultimately, we only lasted through the intermission (which was at 9:30!) so it was a bit of a bummer we didn't get to see the bulls... maybe at our next rodeo (when we get a babysitter).
