Home Away from Home

The weekend of the Sam Houston game, we packed up and headed to College Station. We only took what is of utmost importance, of course. Did I mention our son’s crib looks like an episode of Hoarders each night? This isn’t even half of it.


We had the opportunity to stay at the Spring Creek Ranch Bed & Breakfast outside Bryan.

Spring Creek Ranch

What a neat place! It’s tucked away in the country, surrounded by brush. The one bedroom cabin is cozy, but spacious enough to have a little breathing room. When I say cabin, I’m not talking deer camp ranch house. It’s a newly constructed cabin with great attention to the little details that make staying somewhere nice. The towels were plush; the pillows were not too firm, not too soft; the breakfast amenities were the icing on the cake. 

Spring Creek Bed & Breakfast’s fridge was stocked with perfect breakfast options. Mr. Gray cooked us breakfast; it was just like a Saturday morning at home! Baby Gray was a huge fan of the blueberry muffins and Froot Loops.  

After our fabulous breakfast, we headed to tailgate. Baby Gray had a blast as usual. He still hasn’t met a stranger.


This season, the players have been coming in through the tunnel, and we have been wanting to take Baby Gray down to watch them walk through. We headed down to do just that. The angle isn’t great, and it’s a little long, but it captured Baby Gray’s excitement when he saw the players up close.

Despite the uneventful nature of the game, Baby Gray whooped, cheered, and gigged his way through the game. He had everyone around us laughing as he cheered for his Aggies. 


He could hardly wait until the end of the game when he could finally set foot on Kyle Field to play a little football of his own. Luckily the goal post police let him bend the rules a little and get inside the tape to throw his football. He wasn’t happy when he had to get out, but I’m pretty sure it would’ve been worse if they hadn’t let him in at all. 




We didn’t make it too far out of the parking lot before this little Aggie was done for. 


Heads up: all opinions about Spring Creek Ranch Bed & Breakfast are my own. No compensation for my thoughts or opinions–I just really liked it.
