First off let me start this post by saying HAPPY EASTER! We hope you and your family have a truly amazing day. Second let me follow that up with a recap from our Cow Chip experience yesterday. In my good ‘ol hometown of Beaver, OK there is an annual celebration known as Cow Chip. The main event is the cow chip throw. Yes, you read that right…..people fling moo poo and whoever throws it the farthest wins. In addition to this beloved event there is a craft/hobby show, carnival, parade, concerts and tons of other fun things to do. It’s definitely a small town USA kind of celebration which makes it a neat event to go to at least once in your lifetime. I’ve been every year of my life except for 4 years I believe.
So without further adieu here is our cow chippin good time in photos :) ENJOY
London and I met up with my Dad at his store to watch the parade, it’s a prime location!
Downing’s Market is celebrating their 50th year so it’s only natural that Wee Man take his picture next to this big sign.
…and here ya go…the parade
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls feast your eyes on the mobile cow chip. Yes sir’ee someone made a piece of poop you can drive.
One of my favorite parts is getting a gen-u-ine saspirilla, DELICIOUS!
We even took London on some rides. Since he had done the teacups at Disneyland I figured the Tubs ‘O Fun would be nothing. He was a pro at them.
London’s favorite ride was the cars. He rode these over and over and over.
Against my better wishes Colton and London did the ferris wheel and surprisingly they secured London extremely well and both my boys loved this one.
…..and yet another go on his beloved cars.
Catching some snuggles with Grandpa.
It may not be the most outrageous display but to me it’s part of where I grew up and where I come from. Oddly enough to me the Cow Chip celebration is home.
