Road Trip

boys at thunder game

First road trip of 2013 is in the books!
Oklahoma City and back…in two days.
We got to see our favorite ballers up close. And I mean really close.
Above were our actual seats, but during the pre-game warmup, an unbelievably obliging customer service woman arranged for the kids to sit in the owner’s seats…shown below. (Just for the warmup; they returned to our actual seats for the game.) After everything that Drew has been through, I wanted so much for him to get to high five his hero — and I tried everything to make that happen…to no avail. But this was a stunning consolation and I’m most grateful.


Our favorite of favorites (below; aforementioned hero) unfortunately received the first ejection of his career during our game, but the boys thought that was pretty cool.

“Wow, we witnessed a milestone, Mom!”
Hey, whatever works.


I’m only showing the below photo because of its background story. This was taken during halftime shoot-arounds. See that glazed expression on his face? A ball could’ve been hurtling towards his head and he wouldn’t have noticed. Why? The same distraction that my sons had the entire game: four super cute girls who managed to snag first row floor seats. This photo makes me laugh every time I look at it.


Men. Good lord.
