Weekend Recap

This weekend was a blast! I honestly don't even remember what we did on Friday night, but it obviously wasn't very exciting. Saturday however was crazy and hectic but an absolute blast.

Saturday morning started with my Fantasy Football draft. And guess who drew first pick? This girl. I was excited, but at the same time first pick kind of sucks because after you make your first pick you have to wait for the entire first round and almost all of the second round before you can pick again. Oh well, I still got a pretty good team and I can't wait to kick some bootay this season!

After our draft, we had the hubby's company picnic to go to. It was really nice and I got to meet some of his new co-workers. But the fun part of the day came after the company picnic festivities. After we got home I headed down to my Brothers house so that we could go to the State Fair. I got free tickets to the rodeo that goes on during the Fair so we all decided to go down.

We showed up and the first place we headed was over to the Mutton Busting area. My youngest niece, Kelsi, has been wanting to try Mutton Busting for a couple of months now, ever since she saw it at the last rodeo we went to. For those of you who don't know what Mutton Busting is, it is when a child get's strapped to a sheep to see how long and how far they can hold on.

My Brother and Kelsi, waiting in line.

 Kelsi did such a good job. Even though she didn't win, she still held on for around three seconds and then barrel rolled off the side. She stood up shook the dirt out of her helmet and then had this huge smile on her face. She loved it so much that she can't wait to do it again. My Brother even told her that he will buy her a sheep so that she can practice, to which she replied, "But what if the Sheep poops on my bed?" I lost it. I was crying I was laughing so hard.

After the Mutton Busting, we headed on over to the rodeo. The rodeo itself was kind of boring because the cowboys just weren't doing very well. The best part came after the rodeo. Included with the tickets for the rodeo was admission to the concert afterwards. And Thompson Square was the band playing that night. And they were AMAZING!!!! I can't wait until they come back to CO again.












 After the concert we walked around a bit and rode some of the rides and played a few of the games. Pretty much a waist of money there, but it was fun. We ended up leaving the Fair around midnight and it was a good hour ride home to where my Brother lives. So I ended up not leaving their house until 1:00 am. And my drive home was amazing because I got to talk to my bestie, Lou on the phone the whole way home(she lives in Hawaii so it was only 9:00 there) and that phone call just made my night that much better.

Sunday was pretty uneventful considering that I was still trying to recoop from Saturday. We watched some Football and then went to dinner and that was pretty much the extent of it. Overall, it was a great weekend again and I had a blast hanging out with my family.

How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?
