San Antonio Stock Show

This week Micah, Ava, and I went to the San Antonio Stock Show.  It was definitely an experience for us.  This was Ava's first time to stay in a hotel, and I wasn't sure how well she would sleep, but she did great.  I put her in her pack-n-play at night and she laid there and went right to sleep until the next morning.  We are blessed by how good she sleeps!  

The stroller was Ava's home for the two days we were at the stock show.  She enjoyed it most of the time.

Ava and I ready for the stock show.
Andrea and Kaden brought Micah's cousin Zach down to show.  This is Kaden ready to drive back to the North.  

We saw lots of people we knew at the stock show, including Lane.  He sat right by us, but wouldn't speak to us.  We kept yelling, "Hey Lane!" but he never even acknowledged our existence.  Rude.
Ava LOVED the animals.  Anytime she would settle down enough to realize one was near, she started laughing and sticking her hand out to pet it.  I had to be careful with the sheep, they wanted to eat her hand.  She even like the big animals.  She loved to pet the cows and pull on their ears, and we saw some horses but she couldn't pet them.  She really like the big Priefert horses.

We finally made it home late Thursday night.  As soon as Ava realized where she was she got so excited.  We were all glad to be home.  I was worried that Ava's schedule would be thrown off, but she has slept quite a bit today, tired from the past two days I'm sure.  All in all it was a good trip.
