Miss Rodeo Utah

Last Thursday night, Ryan and I had the opportunity of attending a gala celebration/send-off for Miss Rodeo Utah, who also happens to be Ryan’s cousin, Renae.  It was such a fun night, with a pretty hefty turnout.  The funds raised go to Renae to help her compete in the national competition in Las Vegas.  It was such a fun night, to be able to participate in auctions (live and silent) and be with a lot of family members we don’t get to see very often.  My father-in-law was able to serve as Master of Ceremonies for the night, and looked great dolled-up in his Western do-dads (I can guarantee that is the first time anyone has called Russ ‘dolled-up’).  I love that Ryan’s family has genuine hey-howdy-hey cowboys/girls!  It has exposed me to a new dimension of good times that are very unique and entertaining.

Incidentally, I came away from the night with a movie gift basket, a new tent and a handful of goodies.  My in-laws, however, cleaned up with ice cream for a year (I swear, I BELONG to this family!) and a new HORSE!  I could’ve come up with other occupants for that second bedroom, but this will be much more interesting…
