"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."


Yee-Haw!! Giddy up....!

One of our building customers had 8 rodeo tickets (not to mention parking passes - yes!) to Monday night's Rodeo performance featuring Sugarland. The kids and Gabriel have no clue who they are, but we thought it was the perfect reason to go out on a school night and have some fun!

The weather had been horrible, miserable, just bleh. We had planned to spend most of the night inside anyhow. But by the time we arrived, the clouds had cleared and it ended up being a perfect night out. The kids had the run of the carnival, I didn't have to worry about someone falling behind, getting lost, long lines, etc...The Ferris Wheel was a bit nerve-wracking for us oldies! After that, the kids had fun on bumper cars, airplanes and even roller coasters!

Waiting to ride the Ferris Wheel and having fun on bumper cars!

YIKES! Just don't look down...

Olivia and Seth before and after the roller coaster ride! :)

Flying high at the Rodeo!

Valerie enjoying the plane and Olivia and Seth on the mini-dropper!

I realized my camera has video right in the middle of the concert. I got a great shot (well, could have had more lighting) of Nicholas singing along to a song he had never heard in his life! Gotta love it!

Hugs to all,
