It was an experience.
All gassed up and ready for departure.
We stopped for lunch at Subway.
My mom was the victim of a fender bender, so she had a truck as a loaner. The girls really loved it. Arden said "Mammy Truck" the ENTIRE way there.
The place we stayed was pretty sweet.
It had a kitchen and everything.
The bathroom would have been way better if we didn't have a whole mess of children with us..oh well.
First things first. We went to Dixie Stampede!
All the girls love horses.
Sissy selfie during the pre show.
It was 3 brothers that did a little blue grass stuff. They were pretty good.
Group photo. They seat you in stands. And every one eats the same food..even the little ones. It was an entire freaking chicken..and they don't give you silverware. I suggest you bring some if you go.
We were seated on the "North" side. The show is a competition between the North and South.
They had buffalo.
And super cool neon Indians that came out of the ceiling.
Alice LOVED it!
No show would be complete without a little square dancing.
Or southern belles with parasols.
There was a kids chicken race.
And a pig race.
There was also a lumberjack portion.
And a big finale.
Afterwards we went back to the hotel for a swim. The pool was pretty great. All the girls love to swim.
Stay tuned for the second part of the trip.
