The big event in town was the national finals rodeo, which brings in thousands of people. We didn't go to the rodeo because the tickets were so expensive, but we did go to this huge vendor exhibit. I mean huge! I went to it 2 days because you couldn't get through it all in one day. The other big thing was that we were going to see the musical "Jersey Boys" which mom really wanted to see. Things didn't work out so well with seeing the show, but that is the story of my life when it comes to New Jersey!
Here are pictures from some of the hotel decorations, and the rodeo convention.

|This was an exhibit of young bucking bulls that will be up for sale. This guy got done bucking and is looking at the crowd like he wants someone to play with him. Surprisingly, no one did! I thought he was cute!|

|They created a western town in the center for this show, each house or store represents a rodeo happening next year on the pro circuit.|

The weather was beautiful there and it was a lot of fun hanging out with Denise and the parental units... although we just don't stay out as late as we used to anymore! We were back in bed by 11pm... what a sorry thing to say when you are in Vegas! Oh and yes I only lost money...
