RODEO....

HELLO, WORLD SERIES....!!!!
WAY TO GO
TEXAS RANGERS !!!
**********

IT'S RODEO TIME....
*

This amazing and beautiful horse lay down for the
entire opening PRAYER..
I loved that...
*
We love going to RODEOS...
They were a HUGE part of our lives when our son
rode BULLS all thru high school and, after winning a
really nice scholarship, he rode all thru college..
I always quit breathing when it was his time to RIDE...
and once he was finished and NOT HURT...I started breathing again.
*
THIS rodeo, however, had our granddaughter, COURTNEY, riding...
*

MR. SWEET...with his pinkness of skin...
 son, DAVID and KATHY..
*
GRAND ENTRY...

DEEDS with her memaw...
FIVE little granddaughters, lined up in a row...
Blessed I am ....
*
THIS is COURTNEY...
such a blur...
my camera wasn't set on SPORTS and it was all over
before I could get a GOOD shot..
She was doing breakaway roping..see the little calf in front of her...
She missed this one !...maybe next time..
**
Guess I'm being strange here but....I kind of like this blured photo...go figure!
*

FOUR of 'em came home with me...
...spending the night...acting SILLY...giggling...
cousins loving cousins..
*

And their granddad went to the store for DONUTS the next morning..
GOSH but we had a great time..
Ain't life grand ......
..and it's ALWAYS better when you have sweet little grandgirls spending the night and.....
PINK donuts..

What fun for you (except for holding your breath!!) My 14-year old just asked me today if she could spend the nite tomorrow, but unfortunately we have plans. The fun will have to be delayed. Maybe next week. Enjoy your weekend. Sally

Pat said...

I love it BJ. Fun times and making great memories!

Julie Harward said...

I didn't know you were rodeo people! Us too, my son rode bulls too so I totally relate to the "holding your breath!" We all wear and love boots too, always have, always will. You have such cute grand daughters too! :D

Susy said...

I know you already know it but still had to say it ~ you're a blessed lady (:

The Paint Splash said...

I also love the rodeo even though I grew up in the city. Each year a group I belonged to sold the programs as a fund raiser and got to see it. A great way to get out of the city. I actually love the blurred shot.Happy Pink Saturday have a great week. Debbie

Becky said...

Love, love, love the pink boots! Happy Pink Saturday.

CHERI said...

Susie Jefferson said...

HI BJ - yes, I love your new outfit (in your header - you did a great job with that pic!) And how fun to see a rodeo - don't get many of those in London...

Happy Pink Saturday - and please note I've moved to WordPress.

Hugs from Susie in the UK.

Theresa said...

I love the picture of Mr. Sweet and your Son! Both looking so handsome and alike:) The picture of all of those Granddaughters lined up is worthy to be framed! I know you enjoyed watching Courtney roping the calf! She'll get the next one! Have a blessed day my friend! HUGS!

Rita said...

Hi BJ...It's been awhile since I visited, and I'm so glad I popped in this Pink Saturday to see your Texas Rodeo Post! Great photos of your Grandgirls and the Rodeo Event....loved the blurred shot of the Breakaway Calf Roping event. Rodeo's are so exciting and I know what you mean about holding your breath! Happy Pink Saturday!

Riding bulls bj?!! How did you ever get through that? Did you close your eyes? Your pictures are wonderful of your beautiful grand girls. They will remember these parties at your house forever! Linda

BJ, What beautiful girls! The rodeo looks like fun, and spending the night with their grandparents looks like it was a great finish to a wonderful day!

HI BJ,

Oh my goodness - what fun to continue your family traditin of Rodeoing - loved reading about it - sounds like I would be holding my breath through the entire show.
You are blessed with a wonderful close family.

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

I went to a rodeo once...my husband cracked up because I was obsessed with how they would get their clothes cleaned!
I really got to get out and try that again....and enjoy it!!

LV said...

That is a perfect way to spend time on a great family outing with the grand kids. You are blessed to have such a loving and caring family. I know so many that do not have that. We Texas folks know a good thing when we see it.

Kathy said...

Hello BJ - Happy Pink Saturday!

What a fun time! The girls look like they had a blast...and getting to spend the night at your house was the icing on the cake!
The donuts are beautiful too...

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, BJ. You always have the best Pink Saturday posts. And, having so many sweet pink granddaughters makes you extra blessed. I love when you share them with us.

Oh BJ, I always love hearing about your dear family. Those girls are a real treasure and I can tell they love you and Mr. Sweet so much!

Donnie said...

I love what you put up for Pink Saturday. The little pretties and that rodeo was so nice. Have a great weekend.

hip-chick said...

Oh I love it! The best times are always spent with family. I have never been to a rodeo before. I love the blurry action shot and I love the black and white one of all the girls. I think you should get that one printed and put it in a frame for their mums.

Sue said...

What a fun outing, BJ! I always begged to go stay with my grandparents. It seemed like an adventure away from all my younger siblings. I like your wild, streaky photo, btw....
hugs, Sue

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

So much fun and your family is gorgeous. I love the rodeo too and it looks like you were all having such a wonderful time. Great post. Hugs, Marty

Marlis said...

ooh love me a good rodeo. Our granddaughter is finally old enough to do some mutton bustin! Great family. Do you come to Lubbock's ABC rodeo too

Karen H. said...

Good Morning BJ. I love watching Rodeo's as well. We have one every year here in our town as part of our Annual 4th of July Celebration. There are even some locals that ride in the Rodeo too. My favorite thing about a Rodeo is the bull riding. There are some tuff bulls and mean looking bulls in those Rodeo's for sure. We have some friends that ride in Rodeo's all over. Sounds like you had a good time with your granddaughters. Take care my friend and have a great week and may GOD continue to BLESS you and yours.

Love and hugs,

Karen H.

How fun to have your grand daughters with you - and the pink donut was the perfect touch. I was in Austin in February and went to a rodeo - quite the experience for a New Yorker!

Thank you for being a part of Seasonal Sundays!
