Salinas Rodeo

The Salinas Rodeo will forever hold a special place in the Smittcamp's heart! Blair (Blake's sister) was Miss California Rodeo Salinas 2008. What a dream come true! We definitely celebrated! Then last year, she helped crown the 2009 winner and this year we returned for more Salinas fun.
Blair was apart of all the Grand Entries for each day of the Rodeo. These are all past Queens. What an honor!
There's Blair on the far left!!

Friday night at the Salinas Rodeo...
and with Daddy
On Saturday, Mimi and Big Papa were so sweet to let Aubrey Rose ride the horses...
Oh, she LOOOOOVED it!
Then, Mimi spoiled our girl with everything she wanted. Aubrey Rose wanted a pink hat and it HAD to be pink! With a little outfit change, she became our little pink cowgirl! Thanks Mimi!!!
We had to take a picture with OUR Queen!
Most of the family!
Our little family...
Daddy was EXCELLENT dancing entertainment if Aubrey Rose ever got antsy at all during the 4 hour rodeo. No nap on these days! No worries...on fun days like these, you can just sleep later!
Time for the Sunday Rodeo!

Blake, Aubrey Rose and Uncle Brad
On Sunday, Daddy took Aubrey Rose through their carnival area. It was free to get in and free to do EVERY activity!
Her favorite was the slide. Blake asked her, "Do you want Daddy to go down with you?" What do you think she said?? NOPE! This is how she likes to go down...
There were all kinds of fun games.
She even won a prize at the end. Go figure a pink bouncy ball. Pretty much anything pink wins all these days!

The Salinas Rodeo is phenomenal. Before I dated Blake, I had never been to a rodeo and I remember going to my first one wondering what I was doing. I LOVE Clovis' Rodeo! If you live here, I sure hope you have experienced it! But, if you have gone to ANY rodeo, you would never see the rodeo the same after going to the Salinas Rodeo. It is the biggest in California. As I said before, it is absolutely phenomenal! Non-stop entertainment!
