I found the perfect family vacation! My family and I have been trying to decide where to spend our vacation this year, and we've finally managed to agree on a location. We're going to the 2010 Houston Rodeo. We live in the country and enjoy the rodeo atmoshphere. Every year we attend our local fair and rodeo, but we've never been to a large-scale event of this type. Just looking at the pictures online makes me wish we were already there.
The carnival is sure to be one of my children's favorite activities. Our local fair has nothing compared to the rides at the Houston Rodeo. My oldest daughter has been waiting to go on the bigger rides, and now is her opportunity. My younger daughter still likes it when we ride the rides with her, so I have an excuse to have fun too!
I love everything about the rodeo. Every year when we come home from the fair, it puts me in the mood to watch the movie Charlotte's Web. That movie makes me feel like I'm still at the fair! I think I've burned everyone else out on that movie though, because no one will watch it with me anymore!
My favorite part of the rodeo is the horse show. I've always dreamed of owning my own horse, but up until now, the closest I've come is taking care of our neighbor's horse. It amazes me how well trained these animals are. I can't even get my dog to come when I call him!
As much as we love the country, my daughters and I are more into rock and pop music than country. I'm going to surprise them by taking them there on the day that their favorite musicians are playing. Their two favorite artists, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, are playing on the same night. I can't wait to see the look on their faces when they find out that they actually get to see them in person. There are still great seats available, and I'm going to order my RodeoHouston tickets online, because that's how you get the best seats for the best prices. Check it out!
