Picture Challenge - January 26

I had the chance to go to the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo with my folks today. It has become a family tradition to go to the rodeo with the whole family for as long as I can remember. We typically wander through the exhibit hall and then some of the barns before heading to the actual rodeo. Last year, Sara joined me as my folks were not able to make it and she used one of their tickets. This year, my sister and her family weren't able to make it due to Kathleen being in school down in Austin and Colin being at a swim meet. One thing that struck me this year was that there was a female bull rider, she didn't make it the full 8 seconds, but she did have sparkly pink chaps on and only got stepped on by the bull...twice. I really missed making it to this annual event with the family when I was out in California. Hopefully next year we'll be able to have more of the family around for the show.

Picture Challenge - January 25

So, today I got to play the role of Plumber. The chain on the plunger thingy broke on my guest room toilet this past weekend while Sam was here. I decided I needed to fix it before I have Laura and Ash here next weekend. I might just quit my current job and take up plumbing as a permanent profession....if there wasn't so much ickiness involved.

I figure since I'm way behind on posting pictures and will probably NOT make up for it, so we'll just throw out this picture of know because I haven't posted one of him recently....

Picture Challenge - January 20

The goal today is to hike to the top of Enchanted Rock. Whenever my folks would visit the Hill Country they would always make this a regular stop on their travels and then hike to the top of "The Rock". I went with them one time about 17 years ago and want to experience it again. Fingers crossed that I'll actually be able to make it to the top.
