Omaha, Nebraska is host each year to the River City Rodeo, the second largest rodeo in the world.. behind only the championship event in Las Vegas. This year, Tom and I took the littles to an event hosted by YPO which featured dinner, a talk by rodeo roping star Stran Smith and of course, the main event. Rodeo!
Before dinner, the kids got a roping lesson from a real, live cowboy. Everyone got a lasso to take home as a party favor.
Sarah, Candace and Thomas in their best western gear, including new boots for all.
Bare-backed bronco riding... it was terrifying, actually.
Candace was completely enthralled. She was ready to sign up for rodeo lessons then and there.
