Ahh the Weekend- Stampede Highlights

Well, another Stampede has come and gone. $8 beers were drank, corndogs were eaten and much fun was had. Here are my highlights:

Behind the Chutes Tour- our friends took us to the rodeo where we got to go behind the scenes and stand right behind the cowboys as they mounted their horses. It was amazing to feel the adrenaline and excitement.

The all-white night at the Wildhorse tent- After a delicious dinner at Double Zero, us girls made our way to Wildhorse for a night of drinks and dancing.

Garth Brooks- A night I won't soon forget. That man is an incredible entertainer. He played almost every song I wanted to hear, (except the Red Strokes) and at one point his wife, the ever talented Trisha Yearwood, came out for a couple of duets (including Walkaway Joe) and my favorite song of hers, She's in Love with the Boy. The two of them are truly country royalty.

Fireworks- last night we headed to Scotsman Hill to take in the final night of fireworks. For the past 10 days they've been going off at five locations in the city simultaneously.

Happy 100th Birthday Stampede. My liver is happy to see you go, but I'll be counting down the days until we meet again.
