Ute Stampede Rodeo

Ok. I know it's been FOREVER since I've posted. It just seems like this summer won't slow down. Between the pool, Rodeo, and Parades, we've been keeping ourselves very busy. And Jayden doesn't last 2 minutes without getting into all of my kitchen cupboards, but that is a whole different post, so....
We went to the Ute Stampede Rodeo in Nephi a few weeks ago. We went with my family. It's a tradition my grandparents started and it's been really fun. We missed it 2 years ago when we got married (The whole family went the night after our wedding) and last year we went but I was 8 months pregnant and it wasn't the most comfortable few hours... :) So we enjoyed this year. And Chris' sister Mindy came with us too. I hope she enjoyed it, it was her first rodeo! (Don't think we're all crazy people now Mindy!)

Jayden's new favorite place is on dads shoulders. (BTW thanks for all the pictures Camilla, your the best!)
Us and Aunt Mindy!
Jayden wasn't a fan of his hat, but it did stay on for most of the beginning!
Jayden was drinking out of dads water bottle and spilled it all down the front of him. Then the wind started blowing so we decided we better dry it out. So we wrapped him up in my jacket to keep him warm. Silly boy!
The half time act was the "One Armed Bandit" He was pretty amazing. He rode his horse with only one arm. And had a whip in the other one. I was very impressed. They then let out 2 buffalo and he herded them up on the top of this trailer. It was pretty cool!
I think this was Jayden's first sno cone and of course they didn't come with spoons or straws, so it was kinda fun!
Thanks mom and dad for keeping up the tradition even though grandma and grandpa were out of town. I hope you 2 had fun in New York though. Hope you come next year!
