Stampede Roundup

We came, we saw, we drank. Drank? Yes drank as in drunk. This week the Calgary Stampede rolled into town and with it comes 10 days of pure party. My Bff and I went to one of the hottest parties in town, The Stampede Roundup, and had plenty of drinks, food and music.  Mother nature decided to stop being a hag and let the sun shine on us for one day at least. Considering it's such a popular event (and has so much corporate sponsorship), I was a little surprised how crappy the choice of bands were....but whatevs, after a few drinks it all starts to sound the same right?

{the skies were dark, but we gave Mother Nature the stink eye and she played nice}

{ok, you're all thinking, "didn't the band Lynyrd Skynyrd die in a tragic plane crash before we were all even born?" Yeah that's what I thought too but apparently not?}
{glassy eyes and grins after a few drinks...}
{my brother (tall guy dressed like a sheriff) and his peeps}
{me and my favorite cowgirl, Julie}
{not exactly front row, but it was 3 Doors Down playing so really who cares?}
{note the glorious sunshine and the weirdo guy stroking his mustache...}
{our friend was obviously a Stampede amateur. Everyone knows that real cowboy boots don't get beer cans stuck in the heel. Sheesh}

Today we hit up the Stampede grounds with the kids and now I'm out $200.00 worth of cotton candy, snow cones, hotdogs, rip-off carnie games and kiddie rides. But it was so much fun!

Hahaha we went on a little roller coaster yesterday and my son (4) loved it and wanted to go on it again and again but I couldn't! We'd done the 'teacups' before that and I was feeling green already!

Occasionally Lynyrd Skynyrd comes back from the deadand plays at cowboy events! I saw them on my 25th birthday (more years ago than I care to admit) at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo. They were pretty great for dead guys!
Love the photos ;-)
