Is there much more American than cowboys?
I don’t think so.
And, there’s also not much more fun than spending a hot Saturday night at the rodeo.
At least not anymore.
Not when you’re the mom of 3 perpetually filthy, rarely quiet, always rambunctious and full of energy Dudes who, if left to their own devices for too long, will find a way to rig your house full of booby traps (they’ve done this once this summer) or draw blood.
Neither of these is a particularly happy (or healthy) way for me to end a day.
So, we do stuff like this instead…
Go out to the farm and watch Dudes in tight pants and heeled shoes get chased silly by humongous beasts with chips the size of Texas on their shoulders.
It’s pretty entertaining.
Despite the heat. And, the smell (you get used to it, I swear). And, the dirt and dust and outdoorsyness of it all (although, this is probably fine for all of you people who like crazy stuff like hiking and camping *cringe*).
Plus, if you drag your husband…
And your parents along…
You get to enjoy all of the people you love at once., and then send your parents on their way and your kids to bed the moment you get home so you can curl up on your couch and ignore your husband while you Tweet and eat cupcakes.
