The kids and I celebrated the 4th of July a day early at what has become a tradition… the Round Rock Express Independence Day baseball game with post-game fireworks!
In the past we have gotten lawn seats so the kids could run around, but this year we hit a milestone: We are all too old for the lawn. The other little kids running around us drove us a bit insane. We were run into, kicked, knocked in the head, stepped on… our free stuff went missing, water bottles were thrown around, our blanket was taken over by little bodies….
Next time we will get seats.
Chloe’s birthday “experience” this year was a trip to Houston with me to see the Houston Dynamo’s play, since she’s so into soccer! We ordered shirts to wear so we could be true fans!
The Dynamos won the game, and every time the scored a goal fireworks would go off and streamers would come down. Chloe lived for those moments!
We had some time before the game to check out Discovery Green, too:
In the third picture above she is trying to climb a knotted rope. She attempted that rope that over and over and over again until she accomplished it. Not once did she give up because it was too hard. I love her growth mindset!
Before heading home there was just one more thing to do:
We had the BEST TIME at the Spurs game tonight! It was a great game and we really got into it!
