We all have fond childhood memories of special family outings; memories that, for whatever reason, stick with us throughout the years and always give us that warm, happy feeling inside. For me, one of those outings was a day out to see the Harlem Globetrotters.
Each year, my Dad would get us tickets to watch these wild and crazy basketball players do their tricks, and each year, we would hope and pray that they would beat the good old Washington Generals (who we later learned were just there to add to the fun)!
So what was it about this day that left such an everlasting memory for me?
I think it was a few things: spending the day with my family, laughing and screaming with excitement at the hilarious tricks, and of
course enjoying the popcorn and treats my Dad would only let us have on special occasions. Whatever it was, I can only say this: the moment I heard The Globetrotters were back on tour, I knew I HAD TO take my kids! My daughter is a huge basketball fan, so I knew she’d love it, but what I didn’t know was just how much my entire family would cherish this day out!
In the back of my head I knew how important it was for me that my kids share in this experience with me, but as parents we all know that as much as we hope and plan for the “perfect day,” things like cranky kids, running late or simply a lack of interest can often get in the way. Thankfully, for this day, all went according to plan! We actually got the opportunity to attend a meet and greet with some of the players, and you can only imagine my excitement. Every moment of this event was perfect; the kids LOVED the game, LOVED meeting the players and LOVED how fun it was.
The best part was that they cheered on the Globetrotters and prayed that they would beat The Washington Generals (just as I had 25 year ago)! So when I heard that The Globetrotters were a CAA SCO Savings Partner and wanted to give away a VIP prize pack to one of our lucky Members, I knew I had to share my story!
