The Houston Rodeo 2012

This afternoon, Kevin and I took Jaxon to the Livestock Show and Rodeo. They have a petting zoo there that makes the one at the zoo look like nothing! This petting zoo had goats (Jaxon's fave), sheep, pigs, chickens, and even a deer and a llama! All of the little baby animals were so cute. Jaxon thought so too! Here are some pics of the petting zoo:

After the petting zoo, we walked around and looked at other animals: cows and pigs mostly.

Then we went outside to the kids' farming section. They had this adorable little fake farm set-up where the kids fed chickens, got eggs,planted seeds, picked their crops, harvested corn, got sheep wool, etc. Then they took it to the market and sold it for some "cash," which they traded for a treat at the grocery store. Jaxon picked a rice-krispie treat and he LOVED it! He was not, however, a fan of the corn play-pit.

The last stop was "driving" a tractor with Daddy!

By the end of the evening, Jaxon was very tired and grouchy!

All he wanted was to be in his stroller, enjoying a snack.

It was another great family day with our little guy :)
