We took the kids to a local rodeo tonight with some friends. The four of us have never been to a rodeo before so we were excited to see what it was like. We had a blast! Luckily, our friends are familar with rodeos so they were able to explain a couple things. David is really into Toy Story & the whole concept of cowboys. We had a real cowboy sitting in front of us & he was so nice. He talked to David & explained what was going on through the rodeo. The rodeo didn't start until 8pm so Grace was tired & wasn't real into it. We would definately like to go again!

For dinner, I made honey-garlic pork ribs. I found this recipe in my Taste of Home cookbook. It turned out really yummy!
Honey-Garlic Pork Ribs
**The recipe comes from The Taste of Home cookbook.**
4 lbs pork spareribs or pork loin back ribs
1 cup honey
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground mustard
1. Cut ribs into serving-size piecees; place in a large resealable plastic bag. Combine the remaining ingredients; pour half the marinade over ribs.
2. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for several hours or overnight, turning bag occasionally. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade. Drain and discard marinade from ribs.
3. Place ribs on a rack in a greased shallow baking pan. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Drain. Pour the reserved marinade over ribs. Bake, uncovered, for 30-45 minutes or until meat is tender, brushing occasionally with pan juices.
