Friday Favorites-Dude Perfect Edition

 HAPPY FRIDAY, FRIENDS!

It's school day number two and is it weird to say I'm so thankful it's the weekend already?  haha!  Our school usually starts on a Monday, which means by Thursday everyone is exhausted so this tiny baby steps way of getting into the groove of school is my first FAVORITE!

I'm teaming up with my girls, Narci and Andrea, to bring you FRIDAY FAVORITES!

I have one big FAVORITE night to share with you today.  This past Sunday the family and I headed to the Dude Perfect Pound It Noggin Tour right here in Allen, Texas.  I've shared before my kiddos {and who am I kidding-Tab and I can get sucked right in to the videos too} are big Dude Perfect fans so the first day tickets were available I pounced.  

Sidenote-and I got CRAZY excited afterwards...just ask Shay.  I was like giddy about it ALL DAY.

The day finally arrived and we couldn't wait to spill the beans to the kids.  We'd kept it a secret, were on our way to the venue, and started giving them clues.  Bowen was the first to figure it out and they were pumped!
We're ready for you Dude Perfect!

We happened to be right in front of one of Bowen's besties and his dad, which made this whole night so much cooler in six-year-old Bowen's eyes.  Dude Perfect AND a friend?!

If any of your favorite performers are ever at the Allen Event Center, I suggest you grab some tickets.  The venue is small enough there really isn't a bad seat in the house.  I couldn't get six tickets all together so Tab and the other three kiddos set in the row in front of us {can you spot Tab down there?} and Bowen and I hung with his bestie.

Can you tell we were excited?

Dude Perfect is all about performing trick shots, competitions, and really any sort of sports entertainment you can imagine, but I had no idea how that would translate into a real-live show.

The big screen counted down and Bowen was GIDDY.

These five guys went to Texas A and M and started randomly videoing trick shots.  Their YouTube popularity grew into something INSANE.  They have famous athletes and coaches on videos, have contracts with Nerf for Dude Perfect trick shot goods, and just ended their first tour.  AMAZING!  The best news ever?  They're Christian guys who aren't promoting anything I don't want my kiddos to be watching, which is awesome.

At intermission we grabbed a snack and chatted about how much fun we were having!

Part Two

At the end of the show, the two finalists went head to head battling for the "Tour Winner" of the night.  It just so happened one of the guys stood right beside Nixon and Ebby Lee as he was attempting to shoot the gong.  I wish I had videoed from my seat because all I could see was Ebby Lee jumping up and down and Nixon staring in disbelief.

It really was a FAVORITE night for all six of us.

Can you believe FOOTBALL is starting NEXT weekend?  In anticipation we have big plans of being CRAZY LAZY all weekend long.  Hope you get to be crazy lazy too!

Happy Weekend!

We saw the show in Houston and it was awesome. My kids kept saying "Can you even believe this is happening?!"

My son is such a Dude Perfect fan, and I love the videos too. He has been begging me to go see them, but we live in Kentucky, so he just has to settle for watching them on YouTube.

Looks like a fun night and yes, yes, back to football season with a BF who's a ref, too...for high school and junior high games, 12 weeks of juggling schedules, but he loves it and I love that for him! here's to it!
