A Little Dust on the Boots

Since we have been in this little town, we have loyally supported the South Carolina High School Rodeo.  We look forward to it every August.  We pull out the boots and jeans, get some hot boiled peanuts, and cheer on the riders.  I can't think of a better way to spend a Friday evening with my boys, and the riders always put on a great show.
I actually met my husband on a horse farm years ago.  Matter of fact, we ran into the owner last night during the festivities.  It was sweet to see him and one of his children.  It was a reminder of how quickly the years tick by.  Kevin and I have always wanted our own little piece of land with a couple of stables.  I would love to cheer my guys on some day in the rodeo.

We were hoping to enjoy the night despite Irene, the hurricane, threatening to ruin our fun.  We got lucky and she only blew a cool breeze to make the event even better.   
There is just something about the smell of hay hitting your nose and all the fellas in their white hats.  Is there anything much more American?

My little cowboys enjoyed every minute.
