viva las vegas!

this past week we packed up and headed down to Vegas for the national finals rodeo! it was a rootin tootin good time!

we went with a bunch of kars buddies and had a really good time. we love rodeos and this is by far one of the best. (the ute stampede is a close second!!!) we were able to go twice which was awesome and the other nights we watched it from the casino. we did alot of shopping (yippie!) and alot of eating (yahoo!)

one night we were shopping and we ran into a rather nice gentleman. he told us he had four tickets on the fifth row that he would sell us for face value. we were excited and decided to make a plan to meet up with him before the rodeo. when we got there we went into this room and waited with him for an hour before we got the tickets. when we were leaving we found out who he was. his name is dean oliver. he is an 8th time world champion for tie down roping. he is a big deal in the rodeo world. he was so nice and it was fun to be able to sit so close!
