Boy, I'll tell you what! Those guys are TOUGH! It was the kind of stuff they do on the ranch done rodeo-style. The arena had been rained on so it was muddy and if you were too close you got sprayed with mud (My mom found that out the hard way)! I had a LOT more fun than I thought I would! With enough food and treats, the kids loved it too.
My dad was at the rodeo with us the whole time helping with the kids. Thank goodness, because he was a BIG help. Sister stayed busy using his hea to tell the future... aw, Dad we just love you!
Rosanne is famous for taking pictures everywhere she goes...
Some of the Action.
The next day we had our family activity with the Fragile X Association! We went to the local aquarium. It was so cool! Penguins, octopus, jelly fish, stingrays, all kinds of awesome things. We were there for 2 hours just checking everything out! Our kids LOVED it! Here are a few pics of the activity.
One thing I learned is how big these emperor penguins are, I had no idea, they had life size pictures of different penguins and here is Sister looking so "happy" to pose for mom and dad!
Of course I have to end with Brother's pictures. He asked me if he could take pictures of the penguins with my camera. I was hesitant but as you will see in these pictures his eyes just melted my heart and I let him have free range. Apparently he loves to take his own picture--because there were non of the penguins. Too funny! (Notice even when taking his own picture he won't look at the camera...)
