Last night, we took the kids to the Range Round up here in our fair city. Well, in the city close to our fair city. We had heard about this weeks ago and we were all excited to go see what it was all about. Well, folks, we had a BLAST! I have been to a rodeo or two in my time (shut up)….but this was different. This was all local (within our state) family run ranches competing in real ranch activities. Some included- roping, wild cow milking, bronco bucking and wild horse racing. There was also a kids contest- Bucking Donkeys!
The first thing we got to do is walk around all these cool booths set up with western stuff. I got a really really cool bracelet! I will take a photo later- but it is WAY cool. We then grabbed some grub (look at me all countrified)- and found our seats! Then the fun started!
The American flag- really beautiful.
The horse peeing. My kids favorite part. Sorry.
ready for action

Well, here it is folks.
Dorkity Mc Dork Dork
with Ree, The Pioneer Woman.
Yes, I got to meet her.
Yes, I acted like a total dork.
Yes, she is really sweet and kind and fun.
And I now, will cry.
I look like a turtle in that photo.
And I, I who was a nanny for a celebrity, was so nervous to go up to her I was shaking.
And I can't tell you how much fun I had doing it.
I had a great night.
But I really REAALLYYYYY was a dork.
