We went.  We saw.  We ate.  I danced.  With strangers.  And we had an overall great time.  In case you haven’t noticed by now, Rodeo is huge here this time of year… and well, I just wanted to share a couple of pictures with y’all from our first outing to RodeoHouston this weekend.

Gone Country!

We were invited to the Rodeo Cook-Off on Friday night and of course had to go in our best Western wear.  It’s one of the few times out of the year that we will actually wear cowboy boots and sombreros. 

This is how you Rodeo

If you’re going to the Cook-Off, you better have access to one of the private tents.  This is where all the fun takes place.  Music, dancing, food, beer… all that good stuff.  Different companies and groups host their private tents and invite people to attend during the Cook-Off.  Usually there’s an open bar!

Getting down myself...

Which can sometimes lead to pictures like these being tweeted about you.  This one was put out by none other than my loving wife, whose exact words were “Juan makes very quick friends.  Dancing Girls just wanna have fun. ¡Ay caramba!

Finally, look out for the fellow at the end of this Honky-tonk video yelling yee-haw.  You might just recognize him a little…
