RO - DAY - O

Matt was given four tickets to the Molalla Buckaroo, so we took Ryan and Tori with us for their first rodeo/concert experience.

Notice the hanging corn dogs?   They come in 3 sizes "Shorty, Full, or Oh My God"

Ryan and Tori opted for Shortys

They then headed back for the "Giant Elephant Ear".  The thing is SO huge, it hangs over the LARGE pizza tray.  Unbelievable.  They confirmed that it comes with a side of diabetes and heart disease.

Flag ceremony at the beginning of the rodeo

Bull riding

Apparently I moved the camera when the guy flew off the bull.  I do believe this is the guy that was knocked out cold, came to shortly there after and was given a "re-ride".  On the reride he didn't last 2 seconds.

Prior to getting thrown from the bull

Bull spearing the cowboy there to assist

Lots of angry bulls out there

Bull diving???  Who knew?

Ride 'em Cowboy


Matt and Tori heading out into the arena to get ready to watch the concerts

Gretchen dedicating a song to "Paris Hilton because I can't think of anyone I like less"

Tori and Ryan at the concert -- great sports considering neither one like country music and the second concert didn't start until 11:15pm.
