Rocket Red

How does the Smith family celebrate all leaving the house disease free?

By going to a Rockets game.

This weekend we squeezed into the limo along with Gramma and Grampa and set out for Houston.

We ate dinner at Fajita Jack's (a.k.a. Crazy Willie's).

What an evening we had.

Palmer learned the word "ba-ba-baaah" (basketball) and entertained us all with his antics, gestures and screams of delight over Christmas lights.

The long limousine ride gave us time to cuddle, snuggle and catch up on conversation (and sleep).

Before the game there was face painting for everyone but Alyssa who was diligently working on a poster sized masterpiece drawing of Clutch. Of course, the animal angel loves the teddy bear mascot. Clutch is her favorite thing about the Rockets. When she's gone to games or Rocket's functions before and hasn't seen Clutch, she's cried all the way home!

We had a great time even if we lost to the ponies from Dallas...

Go Rockets!
