I can say since we have lived here in Texas our "fun" memories are very few and far in between.. As I sit here and try to think of any memories we(as a whole family) have had they are few.. When we first moved here my mother came for a visit and took us all to Sea World, Space Center, and to the beach.(all of us together)

I,myself, with the children have done some fun things, like take the children to the beach and to the Natural Science museum with my sister, but very few times with all of us together. Those are the memories that stick most with children.. the ones where mom,dad, and them are there enjoying life.

Last night was one of those VERY rare moments for us.. We went to the MLS Allstar game against Manchester United. Let me tell you my children were in there own man-made heaven.

We were surrounded by 70,000 other soccer fans, just like them

Of course before the game began they had what looked like a mini carnival going on outside the stadium with a bunch of blow ups, and a bunch of free stuff. The children got to get a picture with a Dynamo player Jeff Cameron- he is a defensive player.

We also walked around. I will share these scenes and environments are way out of our comfort zone. There was tons of alcohol all over the place, and with alcohol comes so many other things you don't want to see or even hear! Praise the Lord we were not out their long,because when we arrived was not long before the game was about to start.

We slowly walked into the stadium being herded like a bunch of cattle. We managed after 30 minutes of walking to make our way to our seats. Though the team we were routing for totally lost. It was a memory I know that they will not forget.

These are times I am most grateful to our Heavenly Father for!(memories that we will have to share)

  1. I am completely bummed that I missed that game! David and Noah thought it was amazing, even if MLS lost. I laughed when Noah went on and on about how far they had to walk, how crowded the train car was, and how many people were in the stadium. Glad you had such a memorable time ALL TOGETHER.

    I know what you mean about that. The boys will often do something with one or the other of us, but it's not as often that we are all together.


I love comments.. I love to hear from you and know you have blessed me with your thoughts
