During halftime of the Kentucky vs North Carolina game, Bob tells me he just bought 4 tickets to the Final Four....in Houston! Luckily, we won the game and we would be watching the CATS play in Houston. As ALL the details begin to swarm around in my head, I don't even realize how exciting this is. A spontaneous road trip, seeing the CATS play, and a vacation in March. This never happens! I suppose that's why I was trying to work out the logistics instead of jumping around like a school girl getting her very own Spring Break. It felt good.

We made a couple, desperate calls to Kentucky......seeking baby sitters, road warriors, and the biggest CATS fans we could find. The CATS fans would not be difficult but which ones do you choose?!! Baby sitters, ie E Lee (that's what Harper calls Auntie Lee Ann) and Nana did not hesitate to say YES. Finally, who would up for the 1600+ mile road trip to Houston? The winner is, Poppie (my Dad) and Benjamin (my 9 year old nephew and one of the biggest CATS fans I know).

The trip was well worth it. I had a chance to chill for many many hours in a car with plenty of magazines, new downloads on my Ipod, and the best part was hanging with my Dad, my Hubby, and my nephew. We played the old school/new and improved car games and realized most people, in the state of Texas, drive a really big truck! Also, there really isn't much or very many people between Arkansas and Houston. And we took plenty pictures for memories. Enjoy the photos I got, there are a few more to come...

Somewhere between Nashville and Arkansas we saw the most decorated road warrior!

I took out the camera somewhere in Arkansas and snapped a couple beautiful shots of the sky and scenery around. I really loved this simple peaceful shot.....that is sort of what it's like in nowhereland Arkansas.

We hit the streets and shopped around Houston to get game ready.

Heading into the game!
Watching Dad as he is in deep thought whether we are going to pull it off or not.
Benjamin's favorite food, sugar!
These two shots are taken from our seats. YES, we were up there!

This pic will capture our last smiles of the UK vs UConn game. Much to our dismay, we left with our hats in our hand. And one really really really long cab line. It was worse than waiting for a cab after Derby! I will give you one guess why....

Last stop of the trip was Bracket Town. A "Disneyland" if you will for sports fanatics!
