Backyard Adventure: Butler in the Final Four!

As much as I love to travel, when you live near a great, family-friendly city like Indianapolis, sometimes the travel moments come to you.

Imagine my shock and pure joy when my little school, Butler University, survived the first four rounds of March Madness and made it to the Final Four! Hop on a plane and do whatever it takes to catch the games, right? Not when its in your hometown! That was our luck this past spring. My husband and I splurged on tickets to the games that weekend (in which we came OH SO very close to winning a national championship!) but we wanted to find something to do with out little arrow so he could be a part of the festivities.

We soon learned that the practice sessions for all four teams on Friday before the games were free and open to the public. So we headed downtown and joined 30,000+ of our closest friends (and mostly fellow Butler fans) to take in the action.

A preview of Butler Class of 2031, perhaps?
