Saturday was such a fun day for us...and I think it's gonna be the first of an annual event for our family, too. We (Houston) have a phenomenal defensive player for the Texans in JJ Watt. The man is pretty awesome - his foundation does so much to help kids.
Saturday he hosted a softball game - Texans offense vs. defense - and raised over $300,000 for the charity. This money was earmarked to help middle school kids through after school sports programs.
I found a cool video from the game through his site, too...check it out!
My kids are big Texans fans - stands to reason living in the house with their father!! They had a blast. Aaron got his football autographed by some of the players, including JJ Watt - I don't think daddy is going to give him back his football now, though! :)
I think the players had a lot of fun - they were dancing in the outfield, had a fake rush on the mound, had a rapper for their manager...what fun their job must be!
And of course, the cheerleaders were there...though only for a minute actually. They just came out to announce the players then they were gone again...
These were a few of my favorite shots...we were close, but next year we're buying tickets the day they go on sale and hopefully get some right behind the dugout. There was a lot of signing going on there!
It was a wonderful day out. We were gone all day, but it was all fun & everyone slept very well that night, too! Friday we were actually gone all evening, too. Michael's company hosts a crawfish boil every year and this year it was Friday...bounce houses, bull rides, pinatas, candy, games...it was a full evening as well!
So the kids had a full weekend, needless to say!
Lately every weekend seems to be that way - we haven't had an open day on the weekend in about 6 weeks now I think. I'm ready for some down time! But it sure was fun!!!
