Scott and I had fun at the BYU game. It was the first time that either of us had been to a BIG college game. It's a very fun experience. I almost didn't accept the tickets because Scott has always been such a big Utah fan and very NOT interested in BYU. But my coworker talked me into taking the tickets and having a fun adventure. I didn't tell Scott about my doubts until after the game, and he was shocked! He said he is a BYU fan unless they are playing the U. I guess it's never too late to learn something new about your spouse.

I liked the feeling of being in a crowd that was 99% LDS. I told Scott it was like being in the Celestial Kingdom. He liked the idea of football in the Celestial Kingdom, I'm sure. And we both enjoyed the half time, they did a medley of video game theme songs and marched in Tetris shapes and the color guard was locked in Mortal Kombat. It was a perfect day for football, just a little chilly in the shade, but a beautiful day!

While we were at the game, Taylor went to another tryout in Layton. It was a much bigger tryout (about 800 girls she said) and she got to show off some of her Goalkeeper skills. She was the only girl from Southern Utah so she was recognized for that. She felt much better about this tryout so I was glad she decided to go.

We had a good visit with my Dad and Pam. Shaylie had a good time hanging out and playing the Wii. As usual, I forgot to take pictures, so I'm posting an older one just for fun. . .It's hard to believe how much the kids have grown. This is from 2001!
We're glad we got the chance to visit! Thanks for letting us stay and for taking the girls in hand while we went to the game. We had a lot of fun!

GO COUGARS! Glad you had a good time. I am jealous you were at the game. Sounds like we have a little bit of work to do on Scott to completely convert him to BLUE!

I love BYU football. My parents gave me season tickets for Christmas. I have loved going to the games with family. But don't fret I love to watch the Utah games and root for them too.

Old college friends are getting together to watch the game. Tiffany S. will be in red and maybe Bobbie W. will help her out. As for me I'm just there for the food:)
