Happy Birthday William Foster!

Will turns 2 today! He loves choo choo trains, terrorizing his older sister, and airplanes. The first time I saw him, he had just thrown up all over Meg. It was love at first throw up. :)

Bubs and Uncle Kenny :)I love the look on Will's face - pure astonishment at being INSIDE a plane.

And now he steals my heart every time he smiles his sweet, mischievous smile.

We love you Will!

Kick up your boots!

We headed to the rodeo up in San Antonio. Three major reasons: 1) we got to see our good friends, the Saxtons! 2) we go to see Lady Antebellum perform 3) I finally got to go to a rodeo!!

We drove up to San Antonio to get to play with Carter and Emme before the adults went to the rodeo, and then the big kids left for an adult dinner and night at the rodeo!

My cute date :)
Vaughns and Saxtons - reunited and it feels so good...

We had a delicious dinner at a fun restaurant where the boys were excited for $2 beers.

We got to the rodeo where we had super high up seats which caused for a little vertigo and worked off our dinner :) BUT we had a great view and the perfect view of MUTTON BUSTIN'! The litle kids ages 4-7 get on sheep and ride them for as long as possible. It is hysterical! I am pretty convinced that if Will Foster could compete, he would win.
Here is a small child riding a sheep...
And then falling off...
Where the sheep hide from the wee people.

Then we saw barrel racing, bronco riding, bull riding, the 4H kids rounding up calves, and many other fun "rodeo" things that I don't know the name to.

The end of the rodeo was the performance by Lady Antebellum. They performed for about an hour which was perfect. They did all the great ones like "Need You Now" and even performed a new one they are recording now. They were FABULOUS!

We had a great weekend getting to see a real part of Texas (the rodeo), one of our favorite bands, and some ol' faves in friends :)
