Aggieland, Texas USA

Back at the end of May, we road tripped to College Station for the day to watch the Aggies play baseball with our friends, the Cooks. It was a gorgeous day for it. The weather was the first really good and warm day we've had.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: if you have to have a corporate sponsor for your ball field, the best case scenario is Blue Bell, the best ice cream in the country. They also did a great job of preserving the Olsen Field feel. It still feels like I remember, just upgraded.

Jack's favorite thing of course was the train coming down the track right beside the ball field. The first train that came by was like OHMYGOSHNOWAYTHISISAWESOME. Little guys love trains! We might have cemented him coming to A&M with that one.

After the 7th inning, our kids had sat long enough, played long enough on the covered playground (so nice), and had eaten plenty of junk from the concession stand, so we took off on a walk through the heart of campus. It was Final Review Weekend, so there were quite a few parents there with their students.

You can't see it here, but I found this maroon shirt at Anthro that will be great for game day.

Campus is a lot prettier now than I remember it, probably due to so much construction over the last few years. Right now of course they are working on the Kyle Field renovations. It's going to be amazing!

This is the student side, with the Zone (north end zone) just barely in the right of the picture.

A great trip for sure. It's so fun to walk through our memories with our kids, even if they're not old enough to understand quite yet!


  1. Isn't it SO fun to go back with your little family? We took James to a Georgia game last year and I was WAY more excited than him. He's been brainwashed by his Grandmama into thinking he likes other schools, but it was so much fun to walk around on campus 7 year later (SEVEN?!) with my family.

  2. Love this post! What a wonderful day for your family! I have yet to visit Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park, but I'm dying to go to a game there as soon as we can get down that way. Both of your little ones look absolutely precious in their maroon and white!
