Yellowstone Day 2: West Yellowstone Rodeo

After dinner in our cozy RV, we headed into West Yellowstone, MT to attend the local rodeo.  Our kids have never seen a rodeo before, but they are enamored with cowboys and life “out west.”  We introduced them to bronc busting, calf roping, and bull riding!  The kids even got to participate in a calf scramble.

…lay down in the dirt (only two of mine got in the dirt at first), roll over (“Don’t worry, we wash this dirt every day!”), and while they were distracted, the calf came running out!

Until it seemed that the sky was on fire!

Elaine got to meet a REAL cowgirl!  This was the first lady I had ever seen participate in bull riding!  The kids loved the rodeo!
