A few weeks ago I posted about the Harlem Globetrotters coming to Houston, Texas(You can find that post here). Because I did that post...I was given 4 free tickets to see them yesterday(24, Jan) in Houston! We live in DFW, so we had a bit of a drive...but it was so worth it! My girls and I had never seen them live before, but my husband saw them once when he was about my oldest daughter's age.
We did have to pay $10 for parking, but that was not a big deal. After we parked we had a bit of a walk to the NRG Arena. Apparently there were other things going on around the Arena so the parking lot was packed.
Once we got to the Arena, I went up to their little box office and told the lady my name and that I had 4 tickets waiting for me. Once we had our tickets we went and gave them our tickets. They did a bag check because I had my backpack(had diapers & wipes for my tater tot), but that wasn't a big deal either because I had nothing to hide.
Once we were inside the arena we went to check out the Globetrotters merch they had for sale. We ended up getting one of the Leather Bballs($60 but WELL worth it), then we went to our section and found our seats. I have to say...we had pretty awesome seats, esp for them giving us free tickets.
I took nearly 1000 pictures! I won't post them all here, but I will post some of my favorite pictures. I will post the others on my Facebook, of course the only ones who will be able to see them are my friends on FB.
Here are a few of my fav pictures from last night.
We planned on not spending any money while at the arena that way the only thing we had to pay for was gas to Houston and back home, and parking...but...We ended up getting 3 basketballs!
A leather one($60), A reg One($25), and a small one($20). I'm glad we bought them, because this may be the only chance my girls get to see the globetrotters & now they can say they have authentic basketballs from the globetrotters!
I'm so thankful that we were able to go out and spend a day as a family, & we had so much fun & made many great memories! If you get the chance to see the globetrotters DO IT! They are so fun to watch. Have you ever seen them in person? If so, where at? I'd love to hear from you!
*Disclaimer* I am not paid for this post. I did however, received 4 free tickets to see the globetrotters in exchange for my honest feedback.
