Last one...Happy 4th to all!


Happy 4th of July to all our family and friends. We hope you all have a wonderful day! A special Happy Birthday to Cameron too, he is 13 today.

We spent our day at the Greeley Stampede and had a ball. The Greeley Stampede began its tradition of rodeo and festival 90 years ago, turning it over the years into “the premier event in Northern Colorado.” Boasting a title in the recent past of the “World’s Largest Fourth of July Rodeo,” Greeley draws top contestants in the sport to vie for a piece of the almost $300,000 total purse along with the status of winning one of the country’s high profile rodeos. It also doesn’t hurt that it is right in the middle of what is known as “Cowboy Christmas,” a run of over 30 rodeos from the end of June through the first week of July.

We have been to a lot of rodeos and this one was the “BEST” ever. It was a great choice for our 4th of July celebration. When they brought the huge flag out and sang the anthem with the horses and riders also waving flags, the audience went wild. After all the fun at the rodeo and the park, we watched a huge fireworks show right from our RV windows. It was a wowser day, we hope all our readers had a great one too. I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story. Check back later for our next stop in Nebraska.
