In Which There is a Greased Pig

Sunday evening we headed out to Top Hand Cowboy Church for a time of fun and fellowship. Last year was our first time to participate in this annual gathering and let me assure you my daughter will not ever miss heading to the cowboy church if she can help it. She loves it, y'all!

Getting ready for the coloring contest...


...which her friend (below) won...


Love the photo ops out there, for sure. One of these days maybe Tonto won't have to work and I can get him to sit on this bull...




There was also cowboy coffee but I didn't try any since I figured if I asked for some Pumpkin Spice syrup I might give away that I'm a city girl...


There's really something amazing about being outside and worshiping...


...and getting a word from the Word!


Soon it was time for the goat scramble...


...which someone participated in while wearing a Cookie Monster shirt...


...but when it was the big kids' turn, the ante was upped, y'all...


...and it took a bit longer to track down the larger variety... :-)

The last event of the night was my favorite both last year and this time around...the chasing of the greased pig...


Last year our church took home the coveted trophy (complete with a feather boa) but as you can see from the photo below, those Top Hand cowboys were intent on keeping it this year...


...and they succeeded!

It was such a fun evening and, aside from being 100+ degrees, was absolutely delightful. It was an incredibly busy weekend but I decided going in that we were going to attend everything on our calendar and the housework could wait.

I'm so thankful we did just that...but if you need me this weekend, I'll be at the house doing laundry and dusting. :-)
