Lexi's Basketball Game in Salem

I have been wanting to see my niece Lexi play basketball since she was a freshman in high school. Now she is a senior, and lucky for me, her team traveled to Salem this past week to participate in an invitational basketball tournament. I was so happy to have the opportunity to see her play! It was fun to watch, and I was so incredibly proud of her. She is an amazing player and she had a great game. I told her coach she is a rock star! Brailey and Britt had never been to a game like this, and they were both surprised at how fun it is to cheer for someone you know when they are playing. In fact, we all had a blast! Brady and Britt dropped Brailey and I off to go to a card shop before the game, and when they got to the game, Lexi was playing. I told Brady, "She's been playing so good!" And Brady said, "I figured she was - I could hear you yelling for her all the way out in the hall way." Ironically, her game was held at Willamette University - we knew exactly where to go, thanks to a previous volleyball tournament held there when Brailey played a few years ago. We didn't get to see much of Lexi, but we loved every second of watching her play. And we all had a seriously big time cheering for her, loud and proud! Our only regret was that we didn't think to bring a sign with her name on it. That would have been extra fun! Britt was especially impressed with her basketball skills - he didn't realize she was so good. She is a BEAST on that court! I'm really grateful we got to see her play. Below are some fun pictures I got of her. Because that's what aunts do, right? Take pictures and cheer. Go Lexi! YAH!
