We went to the Ute Stampede this year on Friday. We decided to go a little early so we could do some rides and stuff before the rodeo instead of doing them at midnight. We got there and thought it would be a good idea to start Kyle off on some of the kid rides and see how he did.
The first ride he went on was this caterpillar "roller coaster".
Needless to say he was not that excited about the whole thing. He then spyed the Jeep ride and had to try that one out. I think it was more of a success but he still was not totally into it.

We then went in search of something a little more wild. We found the ride that lifts you up and then over and down and then over and up again (I can't remember the name). No one was there to take our picture as we all went on it but Kyle loved it. So then Jeff thought it would be a good idea to put him in the Gravetron, but Kyle was a little to short for that one (thank goodness). Then it was off to the Wild Machine. Kyle was barely over the height limit. Here are some pictures of them on it. You can hardly see Kyle but he is there.
Ky loved all the rides. I'm glad he does now his Dad has someone to go on them with!!! I think I'm coming to the conclusion that my 3-year-old is an adrenaline junky!!!

Then it was off to get something to eat. We went to one of the carnival vendors and paid out the nose for a hamburger, corn dog and a philly sandwich. It wasn't until after that I saw the rodeo burger stand ughhh.

Anyway we got our food and went to the rodeo. Kyle was good and loved seeing the Wild Child act and of course the bulls. After the rodeo they had a coin dig for the children and some of the kids got overly excited and went into the arena before they had the Spanish Fighting Bull put away. It was a close call but no one got hurt.

It wasn't until the next morning that I got the real ughhhhh of eating the carnival philly sandwich. Lets just say food poisoning stinks but it does help with weight lose ;). Anyway I have vowed that I will not eat anymore carnival food unless it is cotton candy!!!
