A weekend of football.

My cute in-laws came to Utah this last trip.
They came to see my darling sissy cheer!
( She is a senior in high school this year and they promised they would come watch her before she graduated! )
They are the sweetest.

There was no doubt in anyone's mind that she had the BIGGEST fan that night!
He kept calling her name from the stands!
Her name is Lauren but he calls her auntie "la la"
My child is obsessed with her!

There was a BYU {college} football game on September 11th and we all went.

I've mentioned this before but my family and I are like the biggest BYU fans EVER.
I grew going to every game and married someone that competed athletics at BYU and is just as big of a fan!

Because of my husband, Ryan even knows part of the school's fight song at 2 years old! HA

Anyways I LOVE coming home to go to games!
Brings back so many memories.
Aaron and I miss going to school here!

I'm a little biased but I am pretty sure I have the cutest mom and second mom on the planet.

The game was on September 11th so there were a few moments of the night dedicated to remember that day.

sweetest ever.

Ryan Selfie ^^

They coolest part of the game was that we all had signs under our seats.
At one point in the game, our side of the stadium had to hold them up over our heads.
This is what it looked like from the other side ( A friend of ours took these pictures )

After creating the first message,
they then told us to turn our sign to the other side to spell

Sweetest thing ever.
And those mountains kill me!
Gosh I'm obsessed with this place!

Yet again Ryan Selfie ^^
I have about 500 of these on my phone and they make me so happy.

We won which is always a plus...
and we played Houston.

Even better of a win! HA

Gotta love a good weekend of football.
(( My husband will be so proud when he reads that last line ))
