This past weekend we finally got to take the kids to see a Texas Tech football game live. It was a bit anticlimatic for the kids but Ryan and I had a blast!
We drove to Lubbock on Saturday morning and got in around 3pm. The kids were super excited already to be staying in a hotel and went nuts when we got to the hotel room and found that our Christmas elf, Frank, had followed us there! Frank shows up the day after Thanksgiving and comes to our house to watch the kiddos behavior and to listen to their Christmas requests. He travels back to the North Pole each night to update Santa and reappears every morning in a different location in our house. The kids LOVE this tradition and so do we!
It was a cold afternoon in Lubbock and the weather was clear and cold for the game so once we got settled into our hotel we piled on the clothing layers and headed out to check out campus and find a great place to park the car for the evening. We lucked out when a police officer doing traffic duty let us park really close to the stadium (in exchange for buying him a cup of coffee - which we did gladly because it was cold outside!).
The game was great although the novelty wore off pretty quickly for the kids and we ended up leaving at half time because they we too cold!
On the way home we went through Abilene so that we could visit with Ryan's grandmother for a couple of hours.
Excellent trip! Go Red Raiders!
