Apparently football is serious business around here. They aren't foolin' around.
This became clear to me on Friday night, when a friend and I showed up for the local high school game 45 minutes before kick-off, feeling pretty good that we were actually getting some place not just on time, but early.
Then we had to park two and a half blocks from the stadium. And then we had to squeeze all six of us into a spot about three feet wide because that was the ONLY spot left to sit in the ENTIRE stadium. (Well, to be completely honest, we could have gone over to the visitor's side and had p.l.e.n.t.y of space. But that just seemed like a bad idea.)
Having said all that though, it was a blast! The kids loved every bit of it, especially this (Jonah's favorite):
and this (Henry's favorite):
Just lovin' life! :)
Here's the whole crew, after the game:
We left shortly after half time as it was getting late and the kids were pretty much done watching. So much fun and we can't wait to go again! :)
