ROAD TRIP

On June 4 hubby surprised me and Savannah with tickets to a Women's Ranch Rodeo in Hamilton, Texas. So we loaded up and headed that direction. It took us about 2 hours to get there and we had a blast! I had said I had wanted to go and see some of the events they were doing so we may get some new ideas for ours in September. Had no idea he was planning this the whole time! You should have seen this arena in Hamilton! Holy cow! The pictures do not do it justice! It was at Circle T Arena. There is a hotel on site, a huge covered warm up pen, tons of stalls and a huge arena. The arena on one end had a grill/cafe where you could sit at the end of the pen and watch. At the other end is where the contestants waited and it was covered as well. There was also a restaurant, bar, saddle shop, clothes, hay, feed, etc. It was diffidently amazing! I got to talk with the owner when I went to get Savannah a hamburger. He sure was nice and said he wanted a arena that everything! Well I would say he accomplished that!! Thanks Honey it was a great day!
The top picture was taken as we where pulling in to the parking lot. The arena is in the middle, the warm up pens/stalls are up on the hill to the right. And the second picture is the hotel. This place was massive!
