It was an incredibly hot day, 42 degrees (107F), so I bought the kids ice creams...
They made a big mess...especially my 3 year old.
My 5 year old had a go on the mechanical bull ride....
...and he actually did very well. He even rode with one arm up like a pro!
There were bucking broncos...
...and crazy cowboys riding bulls.
There was also steer wrestling, roping and barrel racing, where you see some awesome women racing around barrels on horses. They sure are some gusty and gritty cowgirls!
We also had a great time together as a family. This is my husband and my little girl.
They were enjoying each others company and the rodeo! Love these photos. Heart xxxx
And then later in the evening there was the steer ride. The steer ride was an amateur event where a few different pubs in the area had random guys representing them and riding in the steer competition. My husband and his brothers were a part of this. I have put together a little video for your viewing pleasure, although pardon my mistake in labelling it 'Deniliquin Rodeo 2014'...it was actually 2015...I just haven't got my head around the change of year!
I hope you enjoy it as much as they enjoyed riding a steer and talking about it later! (Many beers...and I think some whiskey.. was consumed during this watching and re-watching of the videos!!)
