Deep in the Heart of Texas!

Some of you peeps may know from this post that we spent a week in Texas with our football family for the Alamo Bowl! Thought I'd photo dump on you all and share the fun festivities we took part in! What a great week we had, and we were beyond blessed to take part in all the fun-ness goin' on!

And we're off to the airport!
One of the advantages to traveling with our football family is charter buses and plane rides. We zipped right through the airport to our own gate, on our own plane!

We stayed at the Hyatt Regency, which was quite fancy pants! What was even better was that the entire hotel was consumed by US! OSU peeps errrrrywhere!! And as it grew closer and closer to the game, there were more and more Beavs around us all.

Our trip to Sea World was pure bliss!!! First time evahhhh feeding and touching some dolphins!

Went to a Spurs game and had a blast!! I don't know the game of basketball nearly as much as I do with football, but I knew the basics to get through some hoots and hollers!

Down on the Riverwalk, we had a pep rally with the Beavs and Longhorns. What an experience that I thought I would only see on a movie like Varsity Blues! So much fun rootin' on our Beavs!

Following the pep rally, we had a talent show, and our Poly Beavs took it home with the haka (wearing Beaver ie's made by my fam)

The view at night from our hotel rooftop was breathe taking! Need I say more??

Day before the game, we had a luncheon pumping both teams up for the game the following day!

Best day of our trip!! Family came in, and we were off to the game!

Without getting too detailed, we lost... a sad loss. We were up the entire game, just to lose it during the 4th quarter. BUT, the Beavs had a great season, and a vast improvement from last year!

We flew home on our very own double decker plane! Soul plane in real life!!

One of the best highlights of the week?! Seeing my family got TV time during our game! See those white arrows?? That be them!

Our Texas trip was an unforgettable one! So proud of our Beavs, and so grateful for our football family!

Wow, you sure got the VIP treatment! That's awesome! I always have so much fun watching the college football bowl games. It was a little sad this year because Penn State, my alma mater, wasn't in any, but what a great experience you had! Happy new year!!
