We're Cool Like That

A couple of Saturday's ago, I arranged a super-cool surprise for the fam, you know, since I'm a super cool mom.
I got everyone up on Saturday morning and told them to get dressed, that I had a PLAN. After a little protest (probably thinking I was going to make them clean house), I got them all loaded up into the car and we headed downtown. In the car, I let them in on my secret (because I wanted them to have a little time to be excited about what we were going to do, and also because I wanted to prep the kids for what manners they were going to need in advance). We were going to go for a super cool, behind the scenes tour of the World Champion Dallas Mavericks locker room guided by Donnie Nelson (General Manager of the team). Yep. I've got connections. Or...I know someone who has connections. Or something.

Matthew listening to a little pre-tour info from Donnie Nelson.  (He's awesome with kids).

Molly working out in the locker room (even the weights had the Mavericks logo on them).

Mike hanging out in the media room (aka--where the players chill).

Matthew wearing the official practice jersey and hanging out by Jason Terry's locker.

The middle of the locker room.

And the whole fam

The lights in the locker room.  Matthew would like his room to look like this.  I'll get right on that.

Super Coolness.  The chair to the immediate left of the white board cabinets leads to the court in the AA Arena.

Matthew goofing around in the Maverick's practice court.

The boy doing what he loves.

All of us with Donnie Nelson after an awesome suprise!

5 people had nice things to say:
