Saturday Amy and Katie decided to come with us to the UT v. CU football game in Austin because Chris had to work all day. This is the first game that they have been able to come to this year. Little did we know that Katie, at 19 months, is already showing the passion for college football that her Aunt Erin has! She came dressed and ready to party! However, we didn’t count on the temperature being in the damp mid-50’s with a strong north wind, so we had to stop at the Co-op to get some sweatshirts to wear to the game. (You just can’t trust those weathermen, who forecast 71 and calm winds!) Katie had a wonderful time charming all the shoppers, and believe me there were plenty to charm.
On the way to the game we stopped to get a quick sandwich at Jimmie Johns…lots of people to say “Hi” to there, as well.
Is that really Jordan Shipley over there? He is wearing the #8. Jordan Shipley has a girlfriend???
Why didn’t someone tell me there was such a thing as tailgating? There are just too many people to say “Hi” to, and, guess what? They’re all happy to speak back! (Even the people from CU.)
That’s the stadium???? I better lean over to get a better look!
This is better. Thanks Grandpa!
We’re facing the wrong direction. Who are these people???
I’m liking this “Deep in the Heart of Texas.” If I could just learn the right time to clap!!
Woo Hoo! Look at that TV!!
My hands are going to be raw from clapping!
There’s a band, too??
Did you see that Grandpa?? The team is coming on the field.
What’s the matter with those boys??? Don’t they know we’re #2?
This is more like it!!!
Oh, Hi Chase, Hi CU girl, Hi Joyce, Hi Sam, Hi Katie, Hi people beside us, Hi people behind us, Hi everyone in the stadium…!!! (She was the belle of the football game, at least in our section.)
Katie, the girl who sits behind us, said to our Katie, “I believe you are really a Texas longhorn!” There’s no finer complement!
P.S. She was not excited to leave and slept all the way home.
