Last weekend we took a trip out to West Texas to visit some of our college kids.
4 of our seniors from this past year are at ACU,
so we went to spend time with them, and encourage them in their first year.
We also had a couple kids drive down from Lubbock to meet us, and we picked up Allison in College Station so that she could join us on the trip.
Some really important things happened over the weekend:
1 - I found out there is a town named after my family!
I was pretty excited!
So excited that I made Michael and Allison get out of the car and take my picture!
Baird! We aren't just bread!
2 - The Sooners pretty much dominated the longhorns
Surprisingly, we weren't the only OU fans in Abilene!
We actually got some cheers when we walked into a restaurant with these shirts on,
but then almost got kicked out of a family's house later that night.
Totally worth it be the Red River Rivalry Champs!
3 - We were given a great tour of the ACU campus, and all the statues that live there.
And then we reinacted their poses...not very successfully.
4 - Michael got a ticket.
On the way home.
The cop was a jerk. The car was a rental without cruise control. Michael was not happy.
5 - and most importantly, we got to spend time with some amazing college kids!!
Cade and Allison showed us all over Abilene, and even more.
We had such a great time spending the weekend with them, and the others that were there.
Everyone seems to be doing well, and now we are counting down the days til Thanksgiving when they all get to come home and visit us!
