HAHA! We had such a fantastic weekend! We traveled to Austin for the third time in 33 days!! Friday night, Jacob and his best pal, Matt, went to the AC/DC concert and had a blast. The little boys and I did a bit of shopping and eating and came back to the hotel to hang out! Saturday, we were up super early to do some tailgating with the Rutherfords and friends! It was too much fun! The game was unbelievably hot, so sweet Shelley took Jace and I upstairs to the air-conditioned suite area! It's nice to have friends with perks! :) And speaking of perks... Matt, Jake's best pal, works for the Longhorns and treated our Garrett to some serious perks! After the game, he took him into the locker room where he got to meet Colt McCoy and get his jersey signed! He was so tickled! He also got to meet Earl Thomas and we all got to see him shake hands with Jordan Shipley! I'm sure these ball players get tired of shaking hands and signing autographs for little ones, but they were so kind and made our little fan a BIG time fan! (Not sure how I really feel about all the burnt orange ;) that has invaded our house, though!) We all went out on the field after the game and Garrett and Jacob got to run and play on the turf! It was an awesome experience and we are so grateful to the kindness shown by the players and the generosity of our "Longhorn Matt"! Thanks for a GREAT time!
