Globetrotting


Last week the Harlem Globetrotters came to our town, and I won four tickets from our local TV station! So me, John, and the youngest two kids went to the show. Tim had to work, and Shelbie wasn't interested, so it worked out well.

The kids didn't know what to expect, but it started out with a bang and they had a blast. They did tricks, and were funny & totally entertaining. The kids totally got into it, screaming and dancing.

{I have no idea why Andrew's eyes are OPEN WIDE in this pic. He's a goofball!}


Click these pics to make them bigger & see the action.
In this first one, they are bowling using the mascot, Globie, as a bowling ball.

Strike!



Then when the show was over, the performers signed autographs and posed for pictures. So we got a ball and had it signed by almost all of the Globetrotters.




In the picture below, the Globetrotter is asking Elayna what happened to her thumb.
They are so fan-friendly and really good with the kids.


It was definitely a memorable experience & I'm so glad we got to go!

How fun! And or free! I've always wanted to see them. Maybe one day we'll take our kids...

So glad the GlobeTrotters are still touring. When I was a kid, they were sort of like superheros. Back then, they would often play basketball games on TV, and I swear, it was about the only thing my dad and I would watch together.
Glad your family got to enjoy the action up close and personal. And you WON the tickets! Woot! Woot!

I remember in my day the Harlem Globetrotters were DA BOMB!!! I hate they dont get the attention that they use to... I've only heard awesome things about the shows they do today & the people on the team. Looks like so much fun!

They are trotting in our area too, I've been seeing lots of commercials. I remember doing that with my kids when they were that age.
