Round Up Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday!!  I have so many things to show you today...I'm excited!  First off, have you seen my Weight Loss Giveaway?  Check it out here and encourage my progress while giving yourself the opportunity to win!

Secondly, I've got this adorable little girls' PINK ladybug costume on ebay right now for super cheap!  It is for sizes 12-24 months and would be so cute in a pink photo shoot or for dress up year round!  Here's the link for that if you're interested:  costume
Next up are these super cute "Cowgirl Bling" cookies I made for my mom to take to work today!  It's Round Up time here in Pendleton, Oregon.  Have you heard of the world-famous Pendleton Round Up?  If not, read about it here!
The kids' favorite parts of the Round Up are the parades!  Here is our Pendleton Mounted Band...love these guys and gals!
The event lasts about a week and there are parades at the beginning and end of the week.  So far, these are the only festivities our family has been able to partake in this year, but we're planning a trip downtown tomorrow night to watch some of the Main Street entertainment.
My kids always have so much fun dressing up in their Western clothes!  It's a good thing some of us are in the spirit because I am SOOO not a cowgirl! :)
Here's Elisha (8) and Cainan (7) wearing their US Bank bandannas that Grandma got them from work!
This was Liam and Kynthia's first Round Up!  (We were in Washington last year when Liam was a baby)
My three oldest boys and sister, Avalon, waiting for the parade to start this morning!
We are blessed to have the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indians' reservation just a few miles up the road.  They have been important partners with the people of Pendleton during Round Up since it began in 1910!
In each year's Friday parade, most of the tribal members put on their regalia and ride or walk in the parade.  It's fun to see all the beautiful costumes!
This wagon train is one of our favorite entries.  The sign says, "These wagons were used in 1850."
Here are Daddy and Selah waiting for last Saturday's parade to begin.  It was a much hotter day than today!
This entry from the Main Street Cowboys has been in every parade that I've seen in Eastern Oregon for as long as I can remember.  When I was a little girl, they threw wooden nickels from the top of the vehicle.  I'll have to dig one out of my "old stuff" one of these days for Vintage Thingie Thursday! Someone is always at the calliope to play a happy tune!
Here's a couple more tribal members in their awesome attire!

I thought these little girls were pretty cute in their pink wagon.  They're a part of the Junior Jam dance group here in town.  The youngest ones always ride in a decorated wagon.  This year, their colors were PINK, white and black...good choice girls!
Check out her "Shirley Temple" curls! Love it!
Oh yes, and then there was the dude in the car! :)  Jamie and I both thought this was pretty awesome!

Well, I've got zillions more photos to show off...maybe I'll do a Round Up post and load the rest.  Hope everyone has a great weekend and don't forget to check out my Weight Loss Giveaway, as well as my Ladybug costume for sale!
