Houston Rodeo Parade

Yesterday, the Houston Rodeo was kicked off with a big parade down the streets of downtown Houston. There were tons of horses, floats, and bands to ring in the festivities. Something neat that I learned yesterday was that the horses weren't driven in on a trailer, they were actually RODE in from wherever they came from! Some even rode in as far as Arkansas. It gave me a whole new appreciation for the beautiful horses in the parade.

Lila and I went with our friend Kim and her little boy Brody. Kim has lived here in Houston for several years now, but this was both her and my first time seeing the Rodeo parade. She usually does the 10K Rodeo run which goes on at the same time, which I hope to do next year! We had such a great time, and I officially feel like a Texan! I can't wait to attend some of the Rodeo festivities (Tim McGraw is performing!!).

  1. So fun!

    We didn't make it to the Parade but, we walked to Memorial from the house and watched all of te Trail Riders ride from the park to downtown! Kate loved seeing the horses!
