If you missed it, yesterday I shared day one of our time in Houston for the Super Bowl and moving right along, today I'm sharing day 2!
Remember yesterday when I mentioned that we had to wake up at the crack of dawn...3:45 AM to be exact. Well all I wanted to do on Saturday was sleep. Seriously. I did not want to be woken up early and had no desire to set an alarm. It didn't help that we woke up to an overcast day so sleeping was just what I did all morning long.
After a quick workout (with Thomas Rhett and his crew working out in the same small hotel gym...totally crazy and awkward at the same time) we got ready to hit the streets of Houston. Along with all the other Super Bowl fans!
We had commented on Friday afternoon that there didn't seem to be that many people in town yet because everywhere we went was pretty dead. Well that all changed over night because there were people EVERYWHERE!
We grabbed a quick bite to eat and then made our way to the NFL Experience. It was so crowded and so busy, but wen wanted to see what it was all about.
There were a ton of fun exhibits and things to see. Everything from team gear, to the Super Bowl trophy and even a display were you could see all of the Super Bowl rings over the years.
The only problem though were the crowds. We didn't want to wait in line for close to an hour for each exhibit, so we just kind of walked around and took it all in.
There were a lot of fun interactive activities were you could try to catch footballs, kick a field goal, run obstacle courses, etc. The whole time we watched I kept thinking how my kid would have loved to try that stuff and there were a ton of kids trying it out. It reminded me a lot of the College Football Hall of Fame Jen and her family went to not long ago.
We were told by a few of the people working there that we came on the wrong day. Apparently, if we had come during the week you could have walked up to every exhibit, every interactive activity and not had to wait at all. Atlanta peeps...take note. When the Super Bowl is here in a few years, take your kids during the week to experience the fun with little or no wait times. We still had fun being there in the middle of all the excitement and surrounded by fans everywhere we turned!
After our time there we walked back to the hotel and got dressed for the happy hour, dinner and concert that evening.
I wore my favorite black skinny jeans again and this fun top I bought not long ago. I loved that it was a flowy floral print, and I especially loved the lace detail on the back!
Before going to dinner we saw the famous Atlanta Falcons Super Fan, The Bird Lady. She was nice as could be and had no problem snapping a pic with us!
Most of the restaurants we ate at during the weekend didn't seem to be prepared for the crowds that would be in town for the weekend and we experienced long wait times, but good food and dinner was no different this night. After dinner we made our way to White Oak Music Hall for a VIP concert featuring the Goo Goo Dolls and Sting. It was such a neat venue and a great show!
Be sure to check back tomorrow for the real reason we were there...the Super Bowl!!!
