Weekend Bull

Last weekend was the FL/GA game.  We went with my family and some great friends, the Hamms.  We got to our parking spot around 9:30, and realized we had beaten everyone else in our group by a long shot.  Now if you know my Dad, you know that YOU better not be late.  But it’s always okay if HE’s late:)

When they finally got there we unloaded all of the grub, and got busy with all of the activities.  But first things first, I had to take a picture of the kids:

Once we got everything set up, it was time to see what was happening.

The first thing that caught our eye was the mechanical bull.  EVERYONE had to take a turn and ride it.

Here we go:

First up was Cade.  He rode a total of 4 times.

Then Daddy had to do it:

Papa was next:

And then…SaraGrace put in to ride.  Unfortunately for me, the only way she could ride is if I rode with her. I have to tell you I knew it was not going to be good when I fell face first trying to get in the ring with the bull.  Thank the Lord Rob wasn’t videoing yet:)

**WARNING:  Posting this video is against my better judgment, but in fairness to all the others I have posted, I promised I would post mine:

Once the bull riding was complete, we made our way over to the fan area.  We found a dancing video game and the kids had a blast:

Cade was really good at it.  But SaraGrace proved she is much better at freestyle.

But then it was time to show everyone where those kids got their moves:

Just Kidding!!!

After we had done everything there was to do, we went back to the parking lot where we ate and ate and ate.  Our friend, Javier came to visit us.  We haven’t seen him in a while, so it was good to see him.  He used to work for my dad, and lucky for SaraGrace, he also used to be a Gator Cheerleader.  When we told her that, she wanted to do a “stump.”

There was a lot of bull on Saturday, including the actual game.  Even though we didn’t win, we had a blast!  Can’t wait until next year!!!

I have to say that this week has been probably the worse week of my life and this post was exactly what I needed to lift my spirits. The videos were great (all of them) I must admit I did giggle and chuckle at a few of them. Looks like it was a fun time!

Please pray for Trinity as she is going through a really rough patch at this time.
