B I N G O !!!

 Last night we attended the Annual XTO Company Picnic.  This year it was at the COWBOY'S STADIUM!!!!  They gave us all Cowboy's jersies for free to wear to the party.  Austin, Blake and Tyler all got Romo, and I got Ware.
 They had a ton of games out for everyone to play.  You could punt a Field Goal, throw a football through tires, bounce houses, basketball shooting games, arcade games, face painting, circuit training, pool, ping pong, air hockey, Wii sports, and entertainment from a live band...and of course, a performance from the cowboy cheerleaders.
 However, before the big party started we sat through 2 hours of BINGO!!! Can't you tell Austin was so excited? haha.  Somehow we survived!
Here's Blake at the beginning...very happy
We even got free concessions from the people walking around. So of course I wanted COTTON CANDY! I made Austin try some.  He had maybe 3 bites and was done.
Blake sure did like it!  Can I have another one after this please?
 They gave away AMAZING prizes for winning BINGO.  I even got a Bingo! Although so did about 10 other people, so my name is entered into a drawing to see who actually won the prize.  The prize was Dr. Dre Beats Audio headphones. OH YAH! We'll find out on Monday who won. Other prizes included Kindle Fire, Ipads, $425 gift cards, lots more....and the biggest was $2000 towards air travel!
Austin LOVED the bounce house obstacle courses.  I was surprised at how well he did.

This was hilarious! He LEAPED off this high wall and just about face planted at the bottom and wasn't even phased! I think I need one at my house.
 Going down the slide!
 He did so well climbing up the last huge hill!
And then came flying down.  Austin just barely went down the Robot slide for the first time at the Robot park in Benbrook...he hasn't been too excited about going down slides until a couple weeks ago.   Good thing,. because otherwise he would have missed out on the fun!
 Austin kicking a field goal. We all cheered for him afterwards and he looked very pleased with himself
 Tyler missed just 3 feet to the right of the field goal! SOOOOO CLOSE! He should be kicking for BYU right now. haha.
I wasn't even close!
 Here's Austin doing the circuit training.  Running around the cones
 Running through tires. He did high knees inside each one, trying to be like the big kids in front of him who he saw go before him! It was hilarious. It took him forever to get through
The big finish!  We wish we could've stayed longer and gotten a tour of the locker room or taken crazy photos or kicked the Field Goal one more time...but we needed to get the boys home.  Overall it was a Blast!
