You mess with the bull... eat the canvas.

We took the chickens to Frontier City Saturday. It's Oklahoma's answer to Six Flags. In fact, the same company owns it.
And the first thing the chickens want to do is ride THE MECHANICAL BULL. Except baby chicken. Who looked at her siblings like they had lost their collective minds. Which, in fact, is never far off from the truth.
But I digress.

It's five bucks per child to watch them hop on the bull and let the ride operator flail them around like rag dolls. Let me just say...they are charging WAY too little. *evil grin*
I laughed until I hurt. Oldest chicken and boy cracked me up. They couldn't quite get the motion. Middle chicken went to mount the bull and totally flew over it the first time. Oh. My. God. I thought I was going to wet my pants.
So. We're cackling, and they're all giving it a go. And I have to say, money well spent.
Sure, we rode some rides. All that good stuff. They played. But the bull?
I will never forget watching them mount up like it was their sole purpose in life and then getting their heiney knocked for a loop about four seconds later. But I give it to them...they got right back on.
Hats off.

That is so funny. I haven't been there in so long. the last time was about 7 years ago when a friend of mine talked me into going because she is a rollercoaster nut and they had a new one. We of course rode them all several times then got on that thing that drops you straight down but somehow it dropped us 1/2 way then we just swung back and forth in midair for about 20 minutes. Not my best moment.

Chrystal: That's the stuff of nightmares. *nodding*
Bryan: You must be smoking something over there, bud. LMAO
The Mama declined gracefully so she could fully enjoy the site of chickens being flung to and fro.

As a mother, I totally appreciate this post. They sooooo deserve it.
