2013 BU Football Season

Image
As some of you know, we were (and still are) very excited about the BU football season.  Katie's enthusiasm has increased quite dramatically over the last couple of years.  Other than some lingering confusion about the ball breaking the plane of the goal line, she knows pretty much all there is to know about football.  
We made it to a number of games, and here are some of the pictures.
BU-Wofford: way too hot, as you can see




BU-ULM: front row of the end zone, which put the kids right in the action




since we made it through the whole game, we went out on the field afterward


BU-OU: a cool night, 'Black Out'; just Katie & Kyle thanks to a friend watching the kids







TT-BU: Kyle and a friend went up to this game at the Cowboys' stadium



BU-UT: freezing cold (20s); for the BIG XII championship; last game at Floyd Casey Stadium



Be sure to watch the Bears in the Fiesta Bowl on the evening of January 1st.

Dallas Weekend after Thanksgiving

We squeezed into the Civic for the somewhat short drive.  Kyle took pics of the kids during a made up game of "Pretend to be an animal."  They were assigned different animals.  Any guesses?


Before checking in to the hotel (in time for the game), and after an indian lunch, we visited Cottonwood Park.  It's an older park located along a long and skinny pond.  It was a perfect fall day.  Some running around, walking on the rocks, feeding the ducks, sliding, swinging, throwing the frisbee, and lots of photo opps.

We finally found the perfect set-up for hotel staying.  The kids were ready to move in.  It had a separate bedroom, a kitchen (including a 12-cup coffee pot, utensils, pots and pans), living area with sofa bed, and free breakfast.  The pool area was awesome too, in an enclosed courtyard but it was outside so we didn't swim, this time.


Back for another visit to the Fort Worth Water Garden.  It tests my courage as a mother but it's beautiful and very unique.
