This weekend was fabulous. Busy--but with a little planning and teamwork (what's gonna work?--TEAMWORK--duh!) it was a great weekend and we are pooped:)
Friday night our friend who works in ticket sales for the Indian Pacers gave us front row seats to the Houston Rockets/Indiana Pacers game. Our tickets were $650.oo each and we felt really cool walking all the way down to the front row behind the basket.
Well halfway through the first quarter he came by and upgraded our tickets to $1000.00 each tickets right next to the Houston Rockets. How cool is that?? And to top it off, Larry Bird signed our tickets.
Saturday we took the short 3 hour trip (when you are 24 hours away from family, 3 hours is nothing:) to Chicago to spend the day with Dad and Roe. We left early and headed straight to the Museum of Science and Industry. Sounds boring but it is actually fabulous and great for kids. We all had a good time.
The best part was the "Poop Happens" skit where they said the word "poop" countless times which made Tobe crack up hysterically, they described how food is processed and digested until it actually turns to poop--yuck!! Dad thought it would be funny to volunteer Roe to do the pooping part. It was kinda funny I must admit. I'm not sure where my dad slept that night but I am guessing it wasn't comfy:)
After the museum we went to Navy Pier. It was cold so we didn't stay long.
We left around 7pm and headed back home. It was a long day but the kids travel great and it was so fun to see Grandpa and Roe.
Thanks for a great day in Chicago!!!!
