Not this last Thursday but the Thursday before that, I was invited on a group date to the Strawberry Day's Rodeo with my BFF Neighbor, his roommate Stuart, who went with my friend Steph and then Stuart's friend was set up with Steph's cousin.
It has been 3 years since I had been to a rodeo, so I was excited. I even dressed up for the occasion. I wore cowboy boots and borrowed Darrell's roommate Stan's cowboy hat and wore plaid. Yep. Darrell and I rode up later from the rest of the group because I had an appointment before. It worked out though, they saved seats for us and we got there right before it started. Just enough time to get some of the delicious strawberries and cream that they sell at Strawberry Days.
The Rodeo is a good time. I didn't fully appreciate it until I moved to Utah, but I sure do now. I had it on my Summer to do list. Oh... and a guy from our group caught one of the shirts. We thought that was pretty cool.
Although I love all of the rodeo events, I think my favorite thing to watch at the rodeo are the dirt bikers. They are amazing! The flip in the air on their bike was super impressive. Also love the fireworks at the end of the rodeo. Oh how I love summer.
We all had a great time. Darrell and I both brought our nice cameras and had fun taking pictures of the event. So fun. Thanks BFF Neighbor for inviting me to go!
