Yee haw for the stock show!

Saturday we went to the Ft. Worth Stock Show and had such a fun little family day!! The weather was unseasonably warm and it was nice to be out in the warm sunshine. I am SO not a fan of winter, especially January. It's so gloomy and ugly out, and I just really get depressed every year at this time. For no real reason. I am 95% convinced I have seasonal depression. Especially when days like this one come around and I am as happy as a lark and could dance in the sunshine all day long!
Ava saw lots of animals, which have always been a favorite for her. She loved seeing them up close and petting the big ol things.

We hit up the midway in the later blazing January heat (blazing for layered clothing and boots & jeans).
We rode the bears, where I got told by a 5 year old I was "too fat" to ride the bears. Kids these days. Haha! I know she meant I was too big.
I actually thought it was hilarious. But you better believe I did tattle tell on her. She needs to be taught the difference, ya know?

Daddy and Ava riding the helicopters.

Ava begged to ride this roller coaster. It was for the littles but still, a rolloer coaster is a roller coaster, right?
Have I ever mentioned how FEARLESS this child is? How since the age of 6 months I knew I had given birth to an adrenaline junkie? Wait! At the age of 6 seconds I should have know she was an adrenaline junkie. She tried to hold her breath for as long as possible and needed help breathing right outside of my womb.
Anyway, that child LIVES for this. Already.
I'm not even sure I have seen her so giddy. When it was over she was cheering so loudly you would have thought the Cowboys just won the Super Bowl (and we know that isn't happening anytime soon).

Last, we rode the teacups. Ava chose this as her "last ride" and of course she wanted the blue one! She loves blue just like her daddy.
She told me to go really fast and make her dizzy. So, her wish was granted and we had so much fun giggling and getting all dizzy. Nothing beats moments like those.


  1. What cute pictures! Looks like y'all had a great day making fun memories!! I'm with you on the cold, dark, dreary days! I am totally not a fan! Bring on the HEAT!!

  2. Looks like you guys had a fun time!! I love Ava's little smile...she is such a happy girl :)

  3. Love the pics! Looks like y'all had so much fun!! Ava is such a doll. Seriously. And of course I'll help you dress your boy one day if you'll help me dress my girl one day...she is SO well dressed!!

  4. Very jealous of your beautiful weather you had! Travis just told me the high for Dallas tomorrow is 4?? Is that even possible? HOw weird. Glad you got some fun in the sun! :) Looks great!

  5. Fun! You need to take Boston on the rides for me. I HATE rides. Yuck. Glad y'all had a great time!

  6. I hate this time of year too... Spring can't come soon enough!

After having my girly girl in April of 08, and spending oodles of money on one of a kind boutique, monogrammed clothing (with hairbows to match), I decided it was time to learn this trade myself before I went broke! I learned how to sew, embroider, and make hairbows in a matter of 3 months. What started as a hobby has turned into a dream come true. I quit my job as a teacher and now work from home when the little one sleeps. My life as a mommy and a boutique clothing designer/manufacturer/monogrammer is truly the best of both worlds!! I have big dreams for the future of my family and the future of SheShe Made. Thanks for joining me as I blog about the journey. Let me know if there is a bow or outfit you'd like custom made for you! Email me at sheshebows@yahoo.com and thanks for stopping by!
