Every year, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo comes to town.
This year, we decided not to take Olive to the performance (bull riding, barrel racing and more ... finished off with a concert). Instead, we set off early Saturday morning for the exhibit portion of the rodeo, meeting our friends Lauren, William and William Averett for the fun.
We started inside with the 'birthing center' and we saw baby cows, sheep and pigs - all born in the last few days!
We saw baby chickens, and Olive got to pet some rabbits.
We peeked in on more sheep, cows and pigs.
We went to a petting zoo. (Olive was NOT excited to pet the animals.)
We got our photo taken with a longhorn.
Then we went outside to watch the tale end of some "
We also found some peek-through farms faces. Olive wasn't keen on being a 'chicken.'
Olive was completely worn out; she fell asleep in the car on the way home and snoozed most of the afternoon.
PS - We were (inside and out) in the section of the show arranged for children. Walking through the long lines of metal pens does yield an entirely different experience than the cute and furry section for kids.
