Birthday Rodeo

April 11, 2009

< < previous | next > >

Well, this was better than hiring a magician: Ellie went to a party out at the edge of town and it turned out the birthday girl was a junior rodeo star. Her dad was a good sport teaching all the girls to throw a lasso, and they even put on a goat-wrassling show for us. We stayed about an hour after the party ended, and even then I had to say to the hostess, "I know we should really be going, but I'm kind of afraid to miss whatever's going to happen after we go."
