Hoedown Fun


We all had a riot on our Hoedown adventure. We all got geared up in cowboy gear mounted our horses (play stick horses) and took off for the Wild West (a nearby park). While there we ate BBQ (*use a large cookie cutter to cut out cowboy themed bread for the sandwiches), salad, spicy chips, and fruit. After the grub was gone we had a shoot-off. We filled water guns with water (dye red and wear white shirts if you really want some fun). Stood back to back; took 5 steps, and then turned around and blasted our partner as fast as we could. The kids giggled like crazy. The survivors of the deadly soot-off played horse shoes. To end the night we visited a local restaurant called “Cowboy Grub” where we had pie and hot wings (daddy couldn't resist the hot wings). They have a fun horse merry-go-round and fake bucking horse the kids can ride for free. What a wild night.
