On Day 7 we got up bright and early and told Granny goodbye. The boys had decided the night before that they wanted to go see the baseball stadium at Texas A&M, which would add some time to the trip. Hence the reason we got up super early.
We first stopped on our way out of town to do a quick exploration of TCU‘s campus. I can’t remember if I mentioned it earlier, but Teenager has a goal to go to all major college football stadiums in the south (or something like that.)
Here he stands inside Amon G. Carter Stadium.
Monkey poses in this spot just outside the stadium.
When we got into College Station, we stopped at the Bonfire Memorial. It was a little bit of let down, because there was a box of brochures at the beginning of the memorial which would have explained what it all meant. Everything was very symbolic and sense we couldn’t read about it, it was all a bit of a mystery to us.
Then, we stopped at Kyle Field to get Teenager and Monkey’s pic inside the stadium.
Then, we stopped at Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park.
We passed through Houston with relative ease.
We got into Clearlake in enough time to go bowling with Papere before Mamere got home.
