Rodeo: Jonas Brothers Concert

After all the snacking, we finally made it into Reliant Stadium for a little bit of rodeo action before the concert started. We saw some Bull Riding, the ever-popular Calf Scramble, and the newest addition to the Rodeo, Mutton Bustin'. (They let 4-6 year old kids put on helmets and climb up on a full-grown sheep. Whoever stays on the longest gets a trophy - McIver probably would have been pretty good at it!) We had tears in our eyes from laughing so hard at (with!) the little kids. They were all troopers.

Olivia & Abby watching the Rodeo and waiting for the concert to begin.

The Mamas had a great time this year, too, even though we knew way more Hannah Montana songs last year than we did Jonas Brothers songs this year.

Let the screaming begin... the announcer came over the loud speaker to announce that the lights were going to go down. The ENTIRE stadium erupted with squeals and screams. (And the ringing in our ears didn't stop until lunchtime the next day!)

We were in the same seats as last year, so this was our view of the stage.

This was our view of the jumbo-tron (and Joe, my personal favorite of the Jonas Brothers!). Can you tell he's looking right at me!?
This is Nick - Olivia hearts Nick.
This is Olivia not enjoying herself at all. She was not even trying to have fun when she didn't know the song, but she was happy to kick back with the biggest bucket of popcorn you've ever seen. Then, when one of her songs came on, she was up and dancing again.

This was truly a once-in-a-lifetime (if we can help it!) day for the girls. We all had such a fun time and will always remember our rodeo concerts with Gay & Abby.
