Each year Houston hosts the nation's largest rodeo and livestock show. Since Ashley turns 13 this year, she gets to take a "birthday trip." She really enjoys horses and therefore decided she would like to take her trip early to attend the rodeo. Brian took the day off from work to take her. They spent most of their day watching a Palamino horse show. That evening they attended the rodeo. Ashley said she enjoyed watching it so much that she forgot to take pictures. Each evening the rodeo ends with a concert. On this particular evening the entertainer was Clint Black. Ashley said she really enjoyed the day.
