Rodeo Carnival: Part 2

This is where we parted ways. Gay took a quick picture of The Merritts in TX at the Rodeo Carnival before Will took McIver over to ride the mechanical bull. Apparently, he did pretty well. He was very excited and animated when he told me about it later that night.

Someone pointed out to me that I look like the only one still having any amount of fun in this picture! Olivia was melting (I was, too, for that matter!). McIver was sad that he didn't get to stay with us (even though he didn't even know we were going to the Jonas Brothers concert). Will was on call and hot. So, maybe I was the only one having fun at this point! (That's the Astrodome, the 8th wonder of the world, in the background - its future is still up in the air. There was talk a while back about turning it into a hotel which I think would be pretty cool. As it is now, it's pretty ugly compared with Reliant Stadium and Arena.)

As hot as the girls were, all it took to cool them off and make them happy was a bowl of Dippin' Dots. We took a look at the Jonas Brothers merchandise, but it was a total rip-off and since they were happy with a $3 bowl of ice cream, we were, too!

This shot is a recreation of a shot from last year's Hannah Montana concert.

At one point, NOTHING would do unless we found a sausage on a stick and a bag of chips. Since the day was pretty much all about these girls, they got their hearts desire. (We're just glad they weren't desiring the $40 t-shirts!)
