The Sweet Sixteen

Have you been enjoying March Madness? We have, here at the Wilson house. My Brother in Law is Assistant Coach at St. Mary's in Maryland Div III. They made it to the Sweet Sixteen and lucky for us the game was in St. Louis. We are only 4 hours away. So we took the kids out of school on Friday and drove to the game.

We had a great weekend seeing Grandmother and another BIL who flew into St. Louis to watch the game. Unfortunately they lost the game but it was so much fun watching the team. They played their hearts out!!!

We got to see some of St. Louis : Washington University, The Arch, The Zoo and Incredible Pizza.

We went to dinner Saturday night with all of the family and while we were there some of the basketball team came in. The were nice enough to take pictures with the kids.

The basketball player second on the left has been selected one of 14 finalists for the eighth V Foundation Comeback Awards. You can read the article here.

I don't follow basketball, but I believe my alma mater, the George Mason University Patriots play Thursday.

Glad you're back to blogging and hope you're over the crud.
