Rodeo, Rodeo, Wherefore Art Thou, Rodeo?

Something that may surprise a few of you: Eric LOVES rodeos. More than popcorn.

Whoa! I might not want to take it quite that far... Maybe they come in number 2 after the popcorn.

Anyway, when we passed a billboard for the Pleasant Grove Strawberry Days, he told me we were going, no questions asked. It's his favorite one.

I haven't been to a rodeo in YEARS, but I was pretty excited to go. Here are some pictures from SATURDAY NIGHT!

His cowboy hat--I think he would make a pretty sexy cowboy, circa Marlboro Man ;)

The "homemade" belt buckle:

The rodeo clown was obsessed with a guy in the crowd named Junior. His jokes weren't very funny, but his back flips on top of stilts were pretty sweet.

I'm not so sure I belong in a cowboy hat...

This was the "world-renowned" show that they did right before the bull riding. Basically, the chick got on her horse and ran around in circles while the buffalo thought a reeeeally long time about getting up onto the trailer like they were supposed to.

They finally got up there, but the biggest cheer came when one of them dropped a huge poop right up on top. Oh and the truck pulling the trailer was pretty sweet too.

I think my favorite part of the whole thing was the strawberries and cream. I could eat that every single day. And in case you're wondering, they don't take cards at S Days... cash only please. Next year Eric and I will try to remember that to avoid the uh... heated discussion... we may have had ;)
