This year Tab opened up (AGAIN) in Dallas with the 2016 Cowboys’ Classic game between USC and Alabama. Since the game was so close to home, Nixon and I decided to tag along ALL weekend with the crew.
We drove to the hotel in Dallas on Friday evening, had dinner with the crew, and got up the next morning for a yummy breakfast. So far-I could TOTALLY get used to this fall life Tab leads. haha!
Several of the other moms/children were in attendance this weekend because of the holiday, so we decided to load up and head to Klyde Warren Park to burn off some energy. Nixon and his two buddies played some football.
*Sidenote, if you’re visiting and looking for a cool park-you should DEFINITELY check this one out. There are food trucks for lunch, playground, splash pad, and a big grassy area as well.*
Nixon was sweating bullets but it was totally worth it in his little six-year-old mind.
Those poor girls were over the boys and the heat at this moment. 🙂
The kids all enjoyed an ice cream sandwich (from a food truck which makes everything taste better) to cool off a bit.
Then it was GAME TIME!!
These three had a blast watching the big game. They sat in the row in front of us-WAY too cool to sit with their moms.
These boys are a mess! But we had GREAT seats in the end zone.
I enjoyed my one-on-one time with this guy.
We enjoyed the game AND the stadium food. Popcorn, pretzels, and ice cream!!
The bands are ALWAYS a hit!
Check out the cute umpire on the big screen. 😉
They asked for pictures with the helmets. We tried to find the USC helmets, but were apparently in the wrong location.
The game was a GREAT one to watch! We had a blast!
Then Sunday we made it back home. One of the families stopped by for a cookout on the way to their house. The boys swam, we had burgers, and then we were all ready for bed by 8:00 p.m. I’m not even kidding.
Boys will be boys. Right?
Smith joined us while Kensington had her birthday party.
On Monday, our family of five headed to the local pool for a last swim. Then we made it home to get ready for the week.
Hope you enjoyed your long weekend and got all rested up! Happy Wednesday, Friends! XOXO
