Basketball Roadtrip to Ames 2018

We made our fourth (and final) trip to Ames, IA on Saturday to watch my cousin, Kaylee, play basketball.  My dad decided to tag along this year, which was nice because I didn't have to drive.  If you want to relive our past trips click here -->  2015  2016  2017
Our family friend, Emily was out of town, but we did get to eat at Hickory park in her honor.
I brought my longer lens and was able to get some really good pictures of warm-ups and the game.
It was a tale of two halves.  The Cowgirls were up 45-25 at halftime, then were outscored 30-12 in the third quarter.  With their lead virtually eliminated it came down to a tight fourth quarter.
They led by just 3 when a ball went out of bounds leaving just 1 second on the shot clock.  An inbound lob was grabbed by Braxtin Miller who threw it up for a 3 and it went it!  After a brief review the shot was confirmed.  Kaylee's mom was visibly concerned during the review.
Kaylee had a career high, 35 point, game and put on a great show for the nearly 50 friends and family that made the trip to watch.
A trip with my parents isn't complete without some ice cream.  This is a Clone Cone, and it was enough for all fo us!
Uncle Mike and Aunt Deb
The whole clan that made the trip.  Only a few more games before she finishes up her senior year.  We will be making a girls trip in a couple weeks to attend senior night in Stillwater, OK.  Can't wait to see her play one more time.
