Let's start by defining "weekend" in coaches' terms... the limited hours we have without our athletes and colleagues on days that start with 'S'. For Ty and I - this usually means Saturday late afternoon starting about 2:30-3, church Sunday, and then we end with another few hours starting about 5:30-6. N.I.C.E. I know. This weekend was no exception... but we made the most of our time together.
This weekend was the 10th annual Brownwood Reunion - AKA - huge deal in town. I'm talking they close half the city off for a midway, venders, races, and concerts. We scored our tickets early for a mere $10 - this is for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday - concerts included. Obviously we weren't planning on getting the full use out of them, but the headliner Saturday night was Kevin Fowler - love him!
We walked down to the vendor section of the Reunion a little before supper time on Saturday night. I didn't know what to expect, but I was surprisingly a little disappointed. I was hoping to find something cute to commemorate our first Brownwood Reunion - I found nothing. We took one rather quick spin and decided to get a drink for the walk home. Our choice - fresh squeezed cherry limeade. Sounds delicious - tasted awful. I am not a spitter - I never spit, but I spit the entire walk home, trying to get the awful taste out my mouth. Gross and unladylike, I know, but I just could not handle it.
We ate a little supper then headed down to the train depot for the Kevin Fowler concert. WOW - there were a lot of people there. We snagged some pretty decent seats... and sat down to wait. At about 10:20pm we were surprised with a nice fireworks show in honor of our troops. We were impressed, well done Brownwood. The concert was pretty good - we enjoyed it.
Hope you had a fun filled weekend!
