March Madness Road Trip

For those of you that know us you are well aware of the fact that we don't do much during March besides watch basketball. Well this year is a little different as we actually took a road trip . . . to watch the first and second rounds of the NCAA men's basketball tournament. Ryan, my dad, my brother and I got to attend the games while my mom and Alicia, my brothers sweet girlfriend, watched the little ones.

We had a blast! 9 hours (4 games) of basketball on Friday, and 2 AMAZING games on Sunday. We got to see the last second shot in the Maryland vs. Michigan State game followed by the over-time Purdue vs. Texas A & M game. To top it off my sister and her family came from the other direction to meet up with us so we had a mini family reunion!

Here is a short video I took of the last few seconds of the Purdue vs. Texas A & M overtime (I had Purdue for the win in my bracket, so I was a little excited).

On the day in between games we went to the Children's Museum and the kids had a blast.
We then walked down to the riverfront park and got some photos
Apparently Molly feels the same way about swim suits as I do. You should have seen my face :)

That Radio Flyer slide thing is awesome. That wasn't there last time I was in Spokane. And I hope Molly is just cold or something, and doesn't have swimsuit issues already. She's totally working it!
