We walked over early so Luke could soak everything in and also so I would have plenty of time to ask strangers to take pictures of our entire family decked out for the game. I think I was excited as Luke was to finally have all the kids be old enough to sit through the game.
We took the kids down to the field to watch warm-ups and they even got high-fives from some of the players.
The game started off great with a fast touch down and then it sort of went downhill from there. The quarterback broke his leg, a few more players got hurt (a ref too), and by the end I had lost count of interceptions our back up quarterback had thrown.
Nate actually started crying at one point. The only good news was that the game was so bad so early on that by the fourth quarter we had resigned ourselves to losing and were laughing at our misfortune.
Instead of being sad, we focused on the positives:
We met Cosmo!
Dustin had gone to get Cougartails with Luke and when they came back guess who was walking up right there with them. I didn't get a picture until all the hugging and high-fiving was over.
We spent time together!
We cheered so loudly we lost out voices.
And at the end of the day, Luke still thought we won! So we actually all went to bed happy as could be.
