houston rodeo

Emerson, Charlie and Abs

Last week was spring break so we took a trip to Houston. While we were there, we went to the Houston Rodeo. What a memorable experience for all of the Bain family. The kids had a blast as well as the adults. We were all having a great time riding rides, when it began to rain. I don't just mean rain...I mean RAIN. We knew that it was coming, but we thought we could get there and home before it hit. Boy, were we WRONG.

We were enjoying the rides outside when all of a sudden the sky opened up. It wouldn't have been all that bad IF we had been even somewhat close to a door to get into the Reliant Hall. I can't even explain to you how far away we were. It started to POUR so Bo grabbed Abby and we all started running. I was in flip flops pushing a stroller and trying to keep my camera dry under my shirt. What a scene. We ran around the whole building before we got to an open door. By the time we all got inside the building, we were drenched. I mean we looked like we had all jumped in a pool with our clothes on. Bo went to buy the kids dry clothes because they were shaking. Abby, for some reason, was thinking she was going to get a haircut. and kept saying, "I am not getting my hair cut". So random! It was quite the experience. The story goes on, but that will explain the last picture of Abby in the new shirt she got at the rodeo. I guess we learned our lesson...if it says it is going to rain....stay home!
