Two things that my husband and I love are sports and roadtrips! Some of my favorite memories with him involve these two things.
Last fall, we roadtripped it up to Waco, TX, home of my Alma Mater - Baylor University! Sic 'em Bears! Waco is about a 3 hour drive from San Antonio. We bought tickets at the last minute to a football game versus Oklahoma State University even though it was POURING cats and dogs! We decided not to tailgate due to the rain - though I wish we had. We saw people out there still having fun. Regardless, we had a blast! We went to one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Waco, La Fiesta, for margaritas and dinner and then headed to the game.
Victory for the BEARS!!!!
Rather than driving all the way back home, we stayed the night half way home in Temple, TX and had brunch the next morning at Meg's cafe - best eggs benedict ever!!
Next, we stopped in Round Rock (by Austin) for Spirit Fest, a Christian music festival that lasted all day. We heard some amazing artists sing!
So this last weekend, we did something similar! We did the whole thing in a day though!
On Saturday, we drove up towards Round Rock and stopped at a flea market along the way.
It ended up kind of sucking but oh well...now we know!
Next, we decided to do a little BBQ Restaurant tour! I like wine tours, my hubby likes BBQ tours. Haha! We stopped at a couple BBQ restaurants in Lockhart, TX (BBQ capital Texas, so I hear).
this place has no silverware, no BBQ sauce, no seasoning - they're confident in the quality!
the wind was cray that day
City Hall (gorgeous!)
Then we finished our drive up to Round Rock for a Round Rock Express baseball game! This is a minor league team owned by the Texas Rangers. The game was a blast!
good seats are cheap at minor league games!
Since I had to drive the 2 hours back home after a late game, I needed some coffee stat!
Our drive home was really a blessing! Kevin and I had good conversation and were swept away worshiping through I Am They's music. Listen to them if you haven't already!
Have you been on any fun road tripping dates?? Anyone else love sporting events like us?
