Matt took a half-day vacation and we left right after lunch. Getting there early won us a great parking space and even though it was the first day of spring break for Houston schools, we definitely beat the crowds. Gabe had all the time he needed to look at all the cows, pigs, horses and chicks. Gabe really loved the cows. His eyes became round as saucers when he saw them. I don't think he could believe how big they were as they ambled up and down the aisles. The smells were pretty big too! Right next to all the animals there was a photo opportunity with a Texas Longhorn, but there was no way Gabe as going to sit up there this year!

Outside at the carnival was the onslaught of fried food, carnival delicacies and lots of BBQ. I had what could possibly be the best fried pickles ever but we did stay away from the frog legs at the next stand! Frog legs? Yuck!

And then we checked out
my new car the big trucks just waiting to be purchased. I'm pretty sure I could rock out driving a truck this big!
Here's to next years Livestock Show and Rodeo where we will actually see the rodeo, eat more fried food and hopefully get Gabe's picture with a Texas Longhorn.
