We set out at 8:00am on Friday morning...me, Dave, mom and dad, armed with breakfast tacos, about 8 DVDs, a radar detector and Diet Coke. We made a few potty stops, discussed all the remaining contestants on DWTS, expressed our disdain for bumper stickers, people driving under the speed limit in the fast lane, and gas station restrooms, and solved most of the world's problems by the time we got to Houston. With 5 hours left in our journey mom and I decided to watch SATC the Movie. I had never seen the movie.... Before you all strike me off of your "friends" list citing irreconcilable differences, please hear me out....I never meant for this to happen. I never meant to get this far down the road and never have seen the movie. When it came out in theatres there were really good reasons why I couldn't go see it and I can't remember any of them now, but at the time they were really good. Then, it came out on DVD and for one reason or another I hadn't bought it and sat and watched it. To be fair I haven't seen ANY movies lately. Slumdog was another one that I saw on the car trip! We finally hit New Orleans, made a pit stop at the Fox and the Hound to refuel and then hit the field.
Go time! They are #34 in the video below...
Kids getting autographs after the game! I LOVE this! Too cute.
Some post game family shots....We missed Kristen!!!
When all was said and done, I hated to leave! Mostly because of the 8 hour (which turned into 10 hours...) drive ahead, but also because I always have so much fun seeing Taylor. We headed home, hit insane traffic outside of Beaumont where we sat still for about an hour, and finally hit the driveway around 1:30am.....I'm SO ready for bed tonight!And not to be forgotten, my precious mom. Happy Mother's day mom! I'm so glad I could celebrate you yesterday and everyday. I hope you had fun, felt honored, and cherished. We love you, we thank you for all that you do for each one of us, and we thank you for raising us in a home where Christ is celebrated and loved. You are an amazing woman!
I'll leave you with some quotes from the weekend:
"Yeah, Taylor put a butter knife in Mohl's carry on, but we decided to text him and tell him before he hit security." ~ Taylor's roomies telling us of one of his MANY escapades. This one involving a butter knife, a carry on, LAX and a COACH. I thought it was hilarious, mom decided she's better off NOT knowing....
"These are crazy good!" ~ Mom, while polishing off her margarita from Superior Grill
"It's almost Christmas!" ~ Mom, (in a whisper) AFTER her margarita from Superior Grill as we were driving down St. charles. We informed her it is in fact NOT almost Christmas, and it's actually closer to LAST Christmas rather than THIS Christmas.
"Yeah, Josh Hamilton is playing this weekend in Round Rock since he is rehabbing." ~ me
"Cool! Are you guys going to go see him??" ~ Preston
"Really??" ~my answer. Considering we were sitting in his living room approximately 550 miles away from the game currently being played.
"Did anyone win anything?" ~Me to Dave
"Your dad's down, I broke even, Petiton won about $20, your brother won about $220, and Preston needs to sell another chair!"
"I don't understand how he can sit out in this sun all day with no shirt on!" ~Mom's ONE observation when this guy walked by.
