At 9pm I got a call wondering if I could ride the flag pattern in the rodeo, the rodeo was the next day. Luckily I have Hope, she isn't afraid of flags and I can ask her to do anything knowing she'll do her best. It was ruff the first time, but after warming her up she calmed down and knew what her job was. The rodeo was Friday and Saturday. She was freaked out by the pigs that were by the gate and she wanted nothing to do with them. The second night she was quite interested in the bulls and loved watching them. I also had to do the concession stand, because the FFA was in charge. All around it was a lot of fun.

NYC was fun for the most part, but really crazy. It made me realize that I am so not a city girl. There were huge buildings and lots and lots of cars. I liked the horses the best, but it wasn't the same with them being part of a busy city like this. We went to a cupcake place... holy cow those were amazing. They had different flavors that you would never think of. Angi and I went to our first Broadway show. "9 to 5" it was really funny. Dolly Parton was the only person I knew, but I don't know many famous people to begin with. Then of course we saw the statue of liberty, and the Brooklyn bridge.
In Boston we went to the beach or a pool a lot. This is just one of the beaches that we went to. It was lots of fun and I got tan :). Addi wanted to be covered in sand. Her swim suit was full of sand when she got out. The waster felt really good after sitting in the sun for so long. There was a lot of old leathery people. Ewwww!!!!
