8 Seconds



8 Seconds was all it took 5 years ago...and I was in LOVE! Five years ago last weekend, was our first date. He planned it all out himself and surprised me by taken me to the Rodeo that comes to Cleveland every February. It is absolutely my favorite date of the year. We've been able to duplicate the date three times in the last five years and I can't wait until next February...it is so great...I love it. I think this year was the best because we were able to buy decent tickets...front row baby...right next to the gate...dirt was flying and horses/bulls were up close and personal...way exciting. The Rodeo Clown even came up to us and took our picture and then took my camera and ran around snapping pictures of the audience as part of his before the show entertainment. After the rodeo, they always have a country music concert by a new artist that most haven't heard of. This year, I can't remember his name, but he was really good...I enjoyed him. Ben and I have created so many memories in Ohio, it's so fun to stumble across them...these dates to the rodeo, I will always hold close to my heart.

Okay, Tara, I never figured you for a "rodeo girl." Growing we went to the rodeo all the time. I loved it! (I love a cowboy in chaps and a black hat even better!)
My favorite rodeo was the one I took my boys and BJ and Trav Newland to in the Salt Palace one summer when we were visiting out there. I think it was called "Days of 47 Rodeo" or somthing like that. To fun! Great date. Way to go Ben!
