Football

Murray and I took the kids to the Alabama game this past Thursday night.  Alabama played Georgia State.  We knew it would be the perfect game to take the kids to because it would not  matter if we had to leave at the end of the 1st quarter.  Thank goodness we made it longer than the first quarter!  Ella and Miller had a blast!  We were running a little late which left no time for the kids to meander to the stadium.  We started off with Murray carrying both kids, but quickly convinced Ella to race us to the stadium.  She ran almost the whole way!   In this picture Ella is showing Miller the lights of the stadium.

I love this picture.  I took it right after we got to our seats.  Miller is facing me but cannot take his eyes off of the football players.  He was still in awe at the point.  You could just see his little mind turning trying to figure out what was really going on.  He had only seen the football games on TV and now he is seeing the players in real life.  
Because we were cutting it very close, we had to feed the kids at the stadium.  As soon as we got there we got the kids hot dogs, nachos and these giant cookies (yes, very healthy I know!)  After all that they were still hungry so we got them another hot dog from one of the vendors walking through the stadium.  Our seats are right on the aisle and at the top of a section.  So, every vendor walks by our seats and usually pauses while people come up to him.  The hardest part of the evening was explaining to Ella that we could not just have something from everyone that walked by.  You can understand how confusing that would be to a four year old, that man is walking by asking if I want cotton candy.  "Yes, I would like some cotton candy, yes please."  It was pretty cute.  Next time we will have to come up with a better plan about snacks at the game.
