Big Week at the Rodeo

The Serious CowboyMoooooo!!!!
It's big week here, at the California Rodeo and everyone becomes a cowboy or girl for at least the week. Logan, I think, may truly be one at heart. He loves to dress up as a cowboy, he even has aliases, Jedadiah Johnathan or Ron Jon, which he uses frequently. Both names made up by him. Jedadiah, I think, is in honor of the character in the movie, Night at the Museum, which he loves and Ron is Daddy's brother, who he loves too. Sadly, we missed the stick horse race this year, it's been on a Thursday night for years. I rushed around like a mad woman to get us there on time, to sign him up, but found out it was moved to the next night. Logan and I made the best of it and had a great mother and son evening at the rodeo. My little cowboy got a lot of attention, especially when he got his groove on, and danced for everyone sitting up in the bleachers. Certain songs just hit him a certain way and he can't contain it, he's gotta dance! If I can figure out how to post a video of it, I will.

Uncle Ron Jon and I love the pictures too. You are so good to dress him up I don't think there is a little kid any where that has more fun. You are such a good Mom! I also remember how Irene would take all the kids to the horse parade. I remember thinking how amazing it was that she would take ALL of them by herself and they would all just have such a fun time!
Memories.....we can't wait for the video
