PBR Iron Cowboy II

Last weekend we headed to Arlington to the PBR Iron Cowboy II at Cowboy Stadium.  Our first stop was one of our FAVORITE places to eat, Pappadeaux's.

After a delicious lunch we met up with friends at Bass Pro Shop where Lyndon received autographs from four of the bull riders.

After a trip to Ikea we checked into our hotel and called a cab to Cowboy Stadium.

We hadn't been in the new stadium and it is remarkable-very contemporary, elegant, and classic.

It's amazing how it goes from a football field to a rodeo arena.

Toby Keith was the entertainment and my music loving husband and son enjoyed the music!

I kept trying to get a photograph of the water fountain spraying on the Ford side, but I failed.

We thought the clowns at our hometown rodeo were funny....

Lots of special effects from this to indoor fireworks.

Jerry Jones welcomed the bull riders as they were introduced.

We could feel the heat from the torches in the stands.

We are not a family that follows bull riding or rodeos but we really enjoyed this event.  The winner for the night was Colby Yates from Fort Worth.  He was not the projected winner, but I was glad he won this event so close to home.

Neat picture of the stadium at night...

Seems I could either get Lyndon or the stadium in one picture.

Lyndon and Benjamin enjoyed playing even if it was late. 
Cody took Lyndon to the hot tub the next morning while I was packing our things and get ready to check out.  Lyndon enjoyed the hot tub and even jumped in the unheated swimming pool a few times.
We headed to Ft. Worth to eat at the Stockyards before heading home.  This man was at the corner with his dog, cat, and rat.  He wanted the rat to stay on top of the cat, but the rat wanted to crawl on the dog instead. You never know what you'll see on the Stockyard's.  Last time we saw a man on a motorcycle with a huge albino parrot on his shoulder.

We had a great weekend with friends and enjoyed family time away.
