Mom, How About Kase Field?

On Saturday, the four of us headed to College Station for the Maroon and White scrimmage.  Tickets are only 5 bucks for adults and kids are free so we plan on using this game as a test for the boys each year.  If they do well, we will start taking them to the regular season games.  We have four tickets in our section, but last year sold the boys' tickets to each game.  The boys had a good time, but Jason and I decided that we weren't ready to actually spend money on them!

The boys needed new Aggie hats, so we used them as bribe material on the way there.  After they got new hats, we headed to the newest chicken place in College Station, Fowl Digits.  College Station has as many chicken places, as Waco has banks, churches, and Mexican food places.

On the way from lunch to the field, we stopped at a gas station.  Jason ran in, and I stayed with the boys in the truck.  The boys could see Kyle Field from where we were parked and Kyle asked to go to Kyle Field about a million times while we were waiting for Jason to get back the truck.

Kyle: Mom, when we going to go to Kyle Field?  I want to go Kyle Field.  I want to see the Aggies in Kyle Field....

Kase: Mom, how about Kase Field?

Kyle: No Kase.  Its Kase (Case) combine, not Kase Field.  Kyle Field.

And then there was arguing in the back seat and giggling from me in the front seat.

The first half was a little rocky, with kids not wanting to stay on our row, out off the isle, but we made it through.  We just didn't see much of the game.  At half time we got popcorn and picked different seats for a change in scenery.  The second half went much better, but the lack of a forth quarter may have helped that!

After the game, they let fans down on the field.  The boys loved this part and I was so happy that we made it through the game.

They had a blast tackling each other.

And then tackling Dad too!

When it as time to leave Kyle Field, we walked through the new MSC, and over to Rudder Fountain.

Then on the way out, Jason noticed the newly renovated baseball field.  We drove around it, and then he wanted his picture taken in front.

It was a great day, and yet another installment of Aggie brainwashing!
