BU Goes Bowlin'!

We traveled south down I-45 to watch a little BU football. Honey and Papa so graciously kept Graham and little Georgia so the 4 adults and the "older" kids could make the trip. Not much of a game, but still fun to fling our green and gold! We had to make a pit stop at Buc-ees! If you are traveling on 45, it's a MUST! The advertise about their clean restrooms and they are the best I have ever seen! Better than my own! And they have tons and tons of great road trip snacks! Adults got snacks too!
Headphones were great! Then we didn't have to listen to Woody, My Little Pony or Clifford. Especially great when the little girl on the right started singing WAY off key and about one of every three words. It provided some great entertainment!

It rained off and on our entire way down there. Once we got to Houston it was a down pour!!! We stopped to visit Wendi and Nick's dear friends Jackie and Mark and then headed to the Reliant Stadium. Thank goodness for an enclosed stadium! This picture doesn't do the flood justice! And the chaos trying to get into the game.
We bought the cheap seats but got a great view of the BU proud!

A little later, Nick and Wendi's friends worked their magic to get us down with the big dogs!
So we were completely soacked on the way in and by this time had dried out.
The kids had fun, of course. Except Anna did not understand why we could not go down and run around the field after the game.
That good Ol Baylor Line! Even Dave had his paw up:!
Seemed the Bears could never get it going and unfortunately lost their first bowl appearance in 15 years. was a fun, quick trip. and worth the drive. We never get to go to Homecoming anymore since we are in the heart of our own football season, so it was fun to support the Bears! My lucky husband headed out to Pasedena, CA for the Rose Bowl the next morning from Houston with his brother and dad, so Wendi, Nick, I and the kids headed back to Dallas. These three were pooped after cheerin' for the Bears!
HUGE thank you to H&P for keeping the little bits so we could make this trip. H&P were also hosting 35 people at their house the next night for our big Watkins Christmas, but jumped at the chance to help us out! Thank you so much!!
