This past weekend BYU played the Longhorns here in Austin. My sister Candace & Bro-in-law Jim are huge Cougar fans, and so they came down to go to the game and, most importantly, to visit us Ü. My Mom, Dad, and sister Kelly were great & watched their kids so they could make the trip. They got in pretty late Thursday night, so we chatted for a bit and then went to bed. The next morning we hung around the house awhile just talking & catching up and then I showed them around the neighborhood. Jim said he wanted some Tex Mex so we headed for my favorite Tex Mex place, Chuy’s.
Great company + delicious food = AWESOME TIME!
Saturday was the big game and we had so much fun!!
We went to the campus a couple hours before the game so we could show Candace & Jim around. Here we are in front of the UT Tower. The flags lined up on the ground in were in remembrance of those who died in the 911 attacks.
Mother Nature actually decided to be nice and kept the humidity pretty low for the few days they were in town. But it was still 100 degrees so we made sure to take a few breaks in the shade.
I sure do love these two and miss them so much!!
Then we headed into the stadium because it was almost game time baby!
This was my first game at UT as well and it did not disappoint!! Jim’s friend Christy (used to work with her) got us some AWESOME seats…35 yard line, 7th row up. Nope, these seats don’t suck at all! Ü
The pregame festivities started and the 100,000+ crowd rocked the stadium
The postgame festivities are pretty darn cool. Most of the 100,000 people stick around to sing the “Texas Fight” and “The Eyes of Texas” with the team
After that, they tower goes from white to orange!
And the crowd goes freaking ballistic. IT. WAS. AWESOME.
We did a little shopping on the way home for some Longhorn gear – not only for these two newly recruited fans but also for the little ones waiting for them at home. Then we grabbed some ice cream and headed back to our place to hit the sack ‘cause these two had an early flight to catch. THANKS again Mom, Dad & Kel for taking care of their kiddos so they could come visit us. And THANK YOU Candace & Jim for coming down to play! It was such a blast having you guys here and I look forward to doing it again soon. I love and miss you very much ♥
